  1. Judge knows they won’t get a conviction on that 2nd degree.

    • @MNTribeFan and you do not know that he didn’t but yet here you are telling me I’m wrong.

      @Living Legend2 served his community vliantly ? He has over 15 complaints against him😂i like how youre so intent on making floyd look bad while purposely ignoring that murderers history. He murdered a man for what exactly? And hes a hero ? Theres a special place in the afterlife for people like you👍🏾

      @Oogway woods don jr is a cokehead and trump seems to snort adderall on the daily.

    • @Melissa Le’on no he wasn’t

  2. Cops should be held to a higher moral standard than the average citizen. Not a lower one.

    • @Josh Lee meth head career criminal. Who is that?

    • @Judy Beckner only some are worthy not all.

    • @Josh Lee STFU crackhead

    • Hey! People Josh Lee says we should not be upset about the cop murdering Floyd the conspiracy. Josh Lee calls Floyd a methhead even though he knows no fact on the life of Floyd. I believe Josh Lee is a severely damaged crackhead or hooked on heroin.

    • @W T F ? Ah yes…what a simple concept, reminder by death. Here is another concept…no police officer ever has the right to be judge, jury and the administrator of justice. No matter what the crime. IT WAS NOT HIS PLACE!

  3. I think the correspondent misspoke when he described the current stage as “jury deliberation”; I think he intended to say “jury selection”.

    • Sophie Gabriel | March 11, 2021 at 6:41 PM | Reply

      I think he said jury questioning which is part of the jury selection process. The jury deliberates at the end of the trial.

  4. Let the whole world be the Jury. We saw the truth with our own eyes.

    • Is that why the Floyd family’s attorney paid for a private autopsy report after he learned that the medical examiner’s report didn’t fit the narrative? Chauvin will be acquitted.

    • @KCBOBX The first autopsy was by the police commission. Are you implying they didn’t have the right to be suspicious of that? Given the police will always protect their own? Also, wrong, the first report still said it was a homicide. You have no clue what you’re talking about lmao. Also, its not like the second report is going to lie, they get the money no matter what outcome they come out with.

    • Aman

    • @Rene Torres lol you need help

    • @Mr Green Jeans Both included homicide. You didn’t read it, as usual. Also you don’t get to pick and choose which one is correct and what parts of it are correct dude, lmao. Just take your L on this. No clue what you even gain by pretending he wasn’t killed. Also yes it is a racial issue because this happens many times more to black people than to white. Absolutely ridiculous you’d say otherwise. Again, I really don’t know what you even gain by pretending that. Get some sense. You can understand it was a murder and a police issue while ALSO understanding the racial underlying problems. You can do both. Maybe that’s too complicated for you but for most of us we have brains that work well.

  5. Chauvin will get a fairer trial than the one he gave George Floyd.

    • @katina s johnson-jones I mean we don’t know why he had his knee on his neck and why for so long. We just know a few things for certain, and that is this guy was seriously drugged up and said he cannot breathe before any of that happened. We also see ZERO evidence this had anything to do with race. We also know knee on neck is a police protocol. I think the cops should have called an ambulance right away, but they couldn’t have known for certain he overdosed. He didn’t collapse or anything. They should have taken a minute to just determine if this guy needed an ambulance though.

    • @Jeremy S. So if you told the cop you couldn’t breathe and the cop refused to stop kneeling on your neck, you wouldn’t die even if you weren’t on drugs? Lol bro it’s like your head went down to your a $ $ and came out of it.

    • @AJ DeRoehn $27million settlement …

    • @Richard Christie where else are trump people besides the us

    • @Jeremy S. He knelt on his neck for 9 minutes. At one point, there were 4 cops exerting pressure on his neck, head and torso. I have asthma and were that to happen to me I would likely suffer a cardiac event. That would be the case with anyone with COPD, high blood pressure, heart disease, or being COVID-19 positive and George had 3 of those diagnoses. I work around addiction; I have seen death by overdose. George’s death was not how an overdose looks; that was a medical emergency induced by force. Those officers brutally abused their power. The 9 minutes of neck compression sent George to his grave. Chauvin needs to be severely punished and made an example of.

  6. What are the hate crimes minima for that state? derek chauvin deserves for every possible charge to be levied. They should treat him as they would if he were Black.

    imagine representing him

    We saw exactly what happened and that was the spirit of evil clearly on display.

  9. The Judges Wisdom in this matter will not be in vain!,,✨

      Send that cop on vacation.

      Great public service

      @Heather Melissa Floyd died in the back of a ambulance of a Fentanyl overdose. The bag of fentanyl bursted in his mouth while he was resisting police and hiding the drugs.

    • @Heather Melissa the videos dosent prove anything

    • Definition of intent: what one intends to do or bring about, Chavin ment to do that he knew his knee was on his neck, after you put your knee on someone’s neck and you keep it on there neck for 8 minutes it becomes intent.

    no one could convince chauvin to cop to his actions, where’s his counsel on a personal level telling him not to fight this, what type of world is this dude livin in?!

  12. When justice is long overdue…

  13. Richard Christie | March 11, 2021 at 5:34 PM | Reply

    Judge sounded as though he didn’t really want to have to apply the rules.

  14. Jennifer Coleman | March 11, 2021 at 6:28 PM | Reply

    Good! Kneeling on a man’s neck until he died is MURDER! There are 3 other cops! He didn’t need to kneel on his neck when the man was already subdued!

    • Maybe if the degenerate wasn’t resisting or high out of his mind maybe he would of overdosed a few days after

    • Candy queen Candy Queen | March 12, 2021 at 10:42 AM | Reply

      @Bones but he wasn’t resisting 9 minutes of kneeling on his knee and he ended up dying. That was murder, it doesn’t matter about the drugs in his system he still caused man too die, and what is that? Murder.

    • Max Shelltrack | March 13, 2021 at 11:03 AM | Reply

      @Candy queen Candy Queen actually the drugs are the key for the whole case hate to burst your bubble.

    George Floyd is dead!
    Chauvin should spent the rest of his days behind bars!
    I am afraid they will let him go free!

  16. We saw it with our own eyes. Heard the man with our own ears.
    Its time for these killings of all of these innocent people, that were never charged with any crime, to stop.

  17. That decision will be appealed, then most likely reversed.

  18. People standing around were begging him to stop and check his pulse. He laid limp for SO LONG. Why did he keep kneeling on his neck?

  19. They are frightened that he’ll be acquitted, so they’re doing everything they can to make sure he’s convicted of something.

    • Black cop Noor from the same city got 12 years off a 3rd degree and manslaughter…1 second shot in the dark

    The more charges brought forth increases the odds of some type of conviction, as to keep the tribesman from more burning looting and more crime.
