    From what I've seen so far, I'll be shocked if Chauvin isn't convicted on the manslaughter charge. I'll also be shocked if he's convicted on the murder 2 charge. Murder 3, I dunno.

    I tend to give the cop the benefit of the doubt. I can accept the idea that Chauvin thought (falsely) that if Floyd could speak, then he could breathe okay. But I still feel that Chauvin acted with callous disregard for Floyd's safety, keeping him pinned to the concrete for more than a reasonable amount of time.

    What's this then? Police chief testifies that restraint of George Floyd 'absolutely' violated policy, ethics of Dept.

    It's got 44 posts (at this writing) and has been active since Monday.

    The only interest I have in this trial is the verdict.

    BLM tried to take over Detroit, but our professional police force kept them in check. Despite that, I will still stay home if it comes out 'not' guilty.

    Well I could use a new torque wrench and maybe some tires so I'll probably go out and do some looting at some point.

    As long as you shout "Black Lives Matter!" or "Say Her Name!" you should be fine. Then you are peacefully protesting and claiming your reparations...but not looting.

    Well this threads taken a bad turn.

    I’ll be happy to see that thug convicted and taken off the streets for good when his verdict comes down.

    I think they reached their verdict before the opening statements. Unless we have a real case of 12 angry men.
