Put your crash helmet on the chauvin verdict is almost in....and it's guilty.

    How can you be guilty of multiple kinds of murder of the same person?

    @Nithavela This article has some clarification on that.

    Well, I'm shocked that they convicted on 2nd degree murder, but I can see why they would. When Chauvin kept kneeling on Floyd after he passed out and another officer couldn't find a pulse, you could consider that to be felonious assault, which pushes it to murder 2.

    So I'll count this as a happy ending. The country won't go up in flames this time.

    I think that this kind of sentencing is frivolous. Just piling on charges like that to increase the length of the prison sentence does nothing.

    To God be the glory, this is an example of the power of prayer. For once the judicial system has worked, let this be an example to police officers everywhere. I was going to leave this country now I’m thinking about staying.

    Similar to what they did at the capital? I doubt it those charges scared them.

    There were so many people out there just hopin' to score some free merchandise at Target. Something tells me they aren't about to go home empty-handed.

    Now it's time to pray the BLM people don't do what they were getting ready to do anyway out of disappointment of being robbed of their opportunity to kill people and destroy things because, "reasons"!

    Because it's human nature.

    People will celebrate. Emotions will rise. Some people in the crowd will be out for violence and stealing and will either use the crowd to hide themselves or incite the crowd to follow their bad example.

    You know. Bad apples.

    Couple possibilities: The proud boys, e. g., march and, 2) You ever see people loot when their favorite team wins? It seems unlikely that nothing will happen.

    Alternatively, perhaps some people will cause trouble because the verdict didn't go the way they expected.
