Prosecutors Speak To Lawrence After Chauvin Murder Conviction | The Last Word | MSNBC


  1. I hate that the young woman, a heroine, is taking on the guilt of this murderer. It was not her responsibility to stop Chauvin, and thank GOD she was filming him or else they could have painted the narrative with a different brush. There was a professional MMA fighter there that didn’t intervene either, there was NOTHING she could have done physically without risking her own safety and freedom. The most heroic thing that she could have done, she did — she witnessed.

    1. Darnella Frazier is a hero. I fear that young woman will be haunted for a long time. I hope her tape reaching the Chief and getting the ball rolling will give her some comfort. But for her, Chauvin may have gotten away with this murder of George Floyd.

    2. It’s a natural feeling that can’t be avoided if you witness injustice in front of your eyes & can’t do anything to stop it. It will take some time for her to let that guilty feeling go.

    3. She is having “Survivor’s Guilt!” Prayers to you sweet girl!!! Your Video, does NOT LIE!!! There is NO WAY, WHAT EVERYONE SAW AND WHO DID WHAT TO Mr. Floyd!!! You left NO “WIGGLE ROOM” FOR ANYTHING ELSE, EXCEPT THE TRUTH!!! PRAYERS AND LOVE FROM OREGON!!!

    4. I wished the crowd, could have “rushed the cops” with Pepper Spray, OR that off duty Firewoman/EMT would have called her Paramedic/Fire Team, that were 3 minutes away, for help, is the ONLY 2 ways to save George Floyd. It just hurts my heart, SO BAD, that Chauvin took a man’s, last breath, with 1 hand in his pocket and a 9 year old telling and knowing THAT THIS IS WRONG!!!

  2. Every time I hear the 9 year old speaking I look at Nelson. He is so agitated, his body language is like: Oh God, please forgive me God!

    1. @f c Don’t tell me what to think. Like I said, you have your opinion and I have mine. I am always up for a good debate, but I gotta say this one is not necessary. In fact it’s stupid.

    2. @Lake I never told you what to think. But of course you have the freedom to your opinions regardless of evidence. Do you see any trace of debating in my last comment? I was the first to propose we should not give importance to the “debate”. I have offered you a truce. Even if you accepted or not, I was out of the ring since my previous comment.

    3. @f c Yes I did see a trace of debate in your last comment before you claimed to bow out. And you keep talking about “evidence” which is in fact your opinion. There’s a difference. You’re not sleek.

    4. @Lake I see. Well, I don’t really see any crime I have committed, but I am not here to pick up a fight, I am here to celebrate the “guilty” verdict with all the people of the world who struggle for a better world and love each other regardless of skin color. If I made you feel uncomfortable in any way I am sorry, it was not my intention. Now, haw sleek is that?

  3. Witness: He was being noncompliant.
    Prosecutor: When?
    Witness: He should have been lying there comfortably. But he wasn’t, so he didn’t comply.
    Prosecutor: You mean… when when was attempting to breathe?
    No further questions.

  4. Mr. Chauvin’s point was to deliberately give pain to Mr. Floyd which ended up costing Mr. Flyoyd’s death and Mr. Chauvin’s career.

  5. Is it just me or does anyone else see Brood’s face as one that exudes undiluted evil ? A face that could be copied and used in a Halloween or Horror movie

  6. she couldn’t physically but she helped the country put more than a face on what these black communities go through on a daily basis

  7. You did an amazing job prosecutors. The patience, decorum, the professionalism the emotional control you exuded throughout this trial, gave me the feel of humans who wanted justice for a wrong, not justice for yourselves. Thank you so much for your historical service. God bless!

  8. It was amazing watching these lawyers put down their case like bricks, one at a time until they had the entire case laid down. Incredible.

  9. Bless all the witnesses, hope the eye witnesses all get the therapy they need. How awful to witness this tragedy in real time. Dr Tobin was amazing. Thanks Steve and Jerry. Rest in power Mr George Floyd

  10. The prosecution team was brilliant i must say this has been the best example of a prosecution team I’ve ever seen they flowed well together you could see they all breathed this case day in and day out and their questioning was great and their cross was insane how they got the defense witnesses to agree with them
