  1. *GUILTY*
    *Derek Chauvin:* “And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for those meddling kids and their phones.”

    1. @I Voted – notice how he keeps saying the same thing in the end but can’t site ONE CASE were this ever happened not one it’s not about logic its about a clown tying to muddy the waters

    2. @Harvey Manfredsenjenson Your reply to @Greatone 2 “You need to look at law cases…”

      I requested you provide one single case in which a convicted person of the charge of murder was ever awarded to be out of prison on bail while the appeal process was on going, as you asserted in one of your posts.

      You have not provided a single one. Instead, you ignore the request and continue your false assertions to other’s comments.

      How about it? Anytime now.

    3. @Harvey Manfredsenjenson Waters comments were made when the jury was deliberating in sequestrum, outside, with the crowd, awaiting the jury to return.

      So no, they didn’t hear her comments.

      Stop presenting false narratives.

    1. @mike briganti; Nothing like a nice little threat to get one going. I would bring out the machine guns and dare them to move.

    1. It’s the will of the people who decided to do the right thing and convict POLICE BRUTALITY and lies that will make our country truly great for the FIRST time

    1. @Debra Johnson IT NEVER WAS. IT WAS ABOUT GETTING RID OF THE POLICE AND REPLACING THEM WITH THE BLM AND ANTIFA BROWN SHIRTS. EXACTLY WHAT HITLER DID.

    2. @mike briganti Yeah it is and you are naive if you don’t think its will happen if it isnt stopped. The BLM are not for the black mn but the are Marxists. Try looking up what they want to do. They are going around colleges gathering up their troops. Do you even know what racism ad marxism really is not the MSM version.

  2. A Giant Step For The Floyd Family……A Baby Step For True Justice In America…….!
    Rasuwl…………

    1. At least that officer got to eliminate one person who did not belong in society. OR, do you prefer having men around, like George, who get violent toward women? Answer honestly.

    2. @A J I did not say that. I said Floyd did his time. But the cop now has to do his time for being a murderer. I respect that.

    1. It’s the will of the people who decided to do the right thing and convict POLICE BRUTALITY and lies that will make our country truly great for the FIRST time

  3. A Tribute in Memory of Mr. George Floyd

    Don’t close the door please let the light shine in.
    Whispering sounds that echo off the walls.
    Straps laced too tightly no room for me to move.
    A blinding glance confuses me.

    Words can’t express the pain of false bravado.
    Piercing stares from the tormented few.
    All sides suffering
    Can’t take this life no more.
    Nothing to chance for a man to break free.

    I only need one eye to be open.
    One ear to listen to what I’m trying to say.
    Just take a moment to come inside and stand with me.
    Everyday’s a nightmare
    I need someone to come save me.

    As I lay distressed pleading please help me mama.
    I see no beacon my life’s growing dim.
    Robbed of tomorrow can’t help those who were chosen.
    It’s up to you where we go from here.

    If I could rise I’d speak up for my freedom with every breath I take that God has given me.
    Come take a chance and take a stand in harmony.
    There will be no tomorrow if we don’t unite to be free.

    The violence that follows will only fuel their hate.
    Take the path that carries your voice of change.
    Let’s lay to rest and and put an end to this shame.
    Be the hope your children need you to be.

    If I could rise I’d speak up for my freedom with every breath I take that God has given me.
    Come take a chance and take a stand in harmony.
    Everyday’s a nightmare I need someone to come stand for me.

    There will be no tomorrow if we don’t unite to be free.

    Rest in Peace Mr. George Floyd

    “Tribute to Mr. George Floyd” on Humble Driver YouTube Channel

    1. @Randy Couch
      And paid his debt to society through the legal system that you scoff at.
      Criminal now behind bars and will face his crimes inside the prison as well as after death for his Cowardly murder.

  4. Thank you to the young lady who filmed the murder of George Floyd. The police should realize by now that everyone and their grandma can record their crimes.
    Also Chauvin should be charged with abuse of a corpse since Mr Floyd was already dead when Chauvin continued killing him for over three minutes. Now make sure he has to serve some time. Justice!

    1. @mike briganti Even if Chauvin had caught him doing such a thing he wouldn’t have been entitled to murder him. He could only have legally arrested him and then Mr Floyd would have had his day in court. Instead Chauvin had his day in court and now he’s going to prison.

  5. Love the part where they put the handcuffs on the killer ” it was epic ” Great job by the courts

  6. I love the words, bond is revoked and the defendant is remanded into custody. I wonder if he likes the feel of the cuffs.

  7. I just can’t get past how unemotional Chauvin is, and has been since the start of this ordeal! I’m interested to see what reform we have now for change, will it takes place before May 31?

  8. The Rev. was very diplomatic with the last question. We still have a long way to go, but this was a first step of accountability on a road to justus.

  9. I’m happy, but so many families still have no justice. I really hope this is a start of change, but I’m scared its just an exception. I truly hope I’m wrong and things start changing…

  10. My thoughts are with the Floyd family, it does not bring George back, however, this is a great verdict for the Justice it deserves.

  11. “While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought into bondage.” 2 Peter 19
