      @B B *definition for facts, a thing that is known or proved to be true.*
      *definition for truth,the quality or state of being true*

    • Agreed
      It’s never principle driven it’s always people driven or hate of people anyway.

    • @ronnie nelso Thank you Mr. Webster. As for the trial- there is currently no fact. There were a series of events that happened and now there is a trial. Until the trial is concluded we don’t need people spewing opinion saying it’s fact or vice versa- people claiming the facts are opinions. Unless you are the judge, jury, or a prosecutor- Do not be claiming things are factual until the verdict has been reached. God bless.

    The Burden of proof is on the defense and the prosecution. Considering that the jury wasn’t there an neither was the Judge.

  3. Defense: “Floyd had high blood pressure, so he actually died from the cheeseburger he had earlier that day, not the actions of Chauvin.”
    Everyone: 😅😂🤣
    Defense: **collar tug**

      Had the most dangerous synthetic drug man has ever produced at a lethal level in his system……..nah he died cuz cop knee on neck.

      Joel rivard no, they don’t only need reasonable doubt. According to Minnesota state law, for second degree, the state has to prove that chauvin’s actions played a substantial role in Floyd’s death. That’s it. The state has more than proved their case. But, still, you never know with jurors…

    Bottom line is: would George be dead if Chauvin hadn’t kneeled on his neck?? I think the answer is pretty clear.

    • @Joel Rivard you are the type that will get 2A cancelled permanently for all Americans.

    • @Sarah Fwhy because I own alotnof guns ok snowflake ive also never been arrested

    • @Joel Rivard hope springs eternal

      @B Ruine he wouldn’t have been a danger to the public, he was having a panic attack. You are a paranoid little coward like Derek. Go hide somewhere little snowflake. Your idiotic takes are embarrassing.

    • @B Ruine bullcrap. There was nothing reasonable about pinning down a handcuffed man that long who was in medical distress. You might make the argument to pin his legs, but even that is shaky.

  6. Who knew that you would have to bring in breathing experts to say what we already know

  7. “Lynchpin” is spelled “linchpin” and it’s highly egregious and aggravating that you used the wrong spelling in a report about what was essentially a “lynching.”

    It’s murder plain & simple!

    Did Floyd die from speculation or from the facts?

  10. WHERE ARE Joyces Chickens?

  11. I’m so sick of this trial…The cop killed him.
    If he didn’t want to be a killer he should of let Floyd lay there and die from the drugs

    I was a little worried after the medical examiner, Dr. Baker, testified. I worried that the prosecution had put Dr. Tobin on too soon, but I am okay now. Dr. Rich pulled everything back together.

    LOCK UP these scared little people with the badges !!! 🐷

  15. Cause of death is homicide

    George Floyd was a role model to our society

  17. ABSOLUTELY!!! And I saw his facial expressions, so did the jury. I was crying with the dissection of the footage. His eloquent, rational and ACCURATE depictions of events. THIS HAPPENS EVERYDAY EVERYWHERE IN THIS COUNTRY. To anyone. LEO’S are hired without appropriate psychological screening by QUALIFIED PSYCHIATRIC PROFESSIONALS. Many lackBASIC COPING SKILLS AEB the extreme amount of personal domestic violence at the hands of LEO’S. DOMESTIC TERRORISTS??? Start with law enforcement reform. NOW!!!

  18. The Leo at mr Floyd’s legs.. His first week on the job. 3rd gen Leo. THE ONLY REASONABLE LEO ON SCENE.

    My opinion is that the prosecutor is doing great but the defense hasn’t done nothing to get Chavin off.
