    I’m very sure he was secretly hoping for one of those pardons lol

    • @SnowWhalez The US pewsident cannot pardon Chauvin, as he’s charged with state crimes

    • @Patrick E chauvin doesn’t need a pardon.

    • @SnowWhalez Well whether he is or not, he will be found guilty😂 he’s going to be sacrificed for the countries sake i can assure you he isn’t going to be found innocent

      @BETTYJO’S GLITTERING ANGELS If they re-instate the third degree murder charge, one does not need intent. Time will tell.

    • @- he won’t be. And that’s why you saw BLM out there intimidating the public. They already know what is about to happen.

  2. Where is the teargas, rubber bullets and riot gear. These are “terrorist protesters”, but don’t send the national guard for 3 to 4 hours. It is amazing how all of this riot suppression was in place here and NOT in Washington.

    “Just because Oj’s got’z blood, don’t mean he did it.. Lotz of peoples gotz blood”

    Blast from the past!
    OJ trial juror explains the process. “ the judge sent us out to get deliberatated” .. “peers” can be highly subjective

  6. That was a terrible thing to inflict on any human being regardless of the circumstances hope he gets the Max’s never see the outside again (peace)

    I’ve watched 5 courtroom videos and all I’ve seen so far is old white men. Not a good start.

  8. We are all in agreement that George Floyd had a lengthy criminal record but that doesn’t give Derek Chauvin the right to end his life. I watched the murder take place, at any time Chauvin and his henchmen to cuff him and put him in a wagon.
    Truth is we all watched his last breath, it happened on the street and not in ambulance or hospital. Derek Chauvin murdered a man by his flagrant disregard for law.
    It was murder we know that.

    If he gets acquitted prepare for the riots

  10. The abhorrent landmine immuhistochemically disagree because october endogenously retire during a rabid appeal. poised, ten biology

  11. Everybody knows he’s going to walk!

    It’s about time white people and police pay for what they do to other people are to black people.

    Wish I was part of this jury

  15. “Peaceful protests” have entered the chat

  16. This officer worked with Floyd and hated or feared him. He knew This man was FLOYD and murdered him. Ask his former boss.

    We are about to witness the most bias trial in US history. This will surpass Charlie Manson being convicted on 7 counts of murder even though he wasn’t even there for 5 of them.
    This guy is toast. There’s no way he will be found not guilty, even if the evidence proves otherwise. There’s no way anyone is going to be allowed to destroy this country with savage protests, and that’s what’s going to happen if he is found not guilty. Grab the popcorn.

  18. 12 jurors getting death threats

  19. There is no soul in this criminal’s eyes.

  20. They are stalling to rig the system more than usual.
