CHAUVIN REACTIONS: Twitter Lights Up as Jury Finds Chauvin Guilty on All Three Counts

CHAUVIN REACTIONS: Twitter Lights Up as Jury Finds Chauvin Guilty on All Three Counts

“You can agree with the guilty verdict in the #ChauvinTrial and still recognize the Democrats are extremely out-of-line and have contempt for America’s justice system.”

The jury found ex-officer Derek Chauvin guilty on all three counts in the death of George Floyd. Here are a few reactions from people across the political spectrum.

I found some on the left who did not receive satisfaction with the verdict. Gee, it’s almost like they wanted the jury to find him not guilty. It’s almost like they wanted to riot and vandalize everything in their way.

Government officials chimed in, too.

Kinda figured that would be the case once I heard how quick they came back.
Sad.

    In retrospect, I conclude there was no need for me to follow the trial to hear what evidence was presented or what the facts were. It had already be determined in advance that Chauvin was guilty and nothing that was said or done during the trial made one bit of difference. It was not even a trial. It was just a rubber stamp.

      There will still be riots tonight. They will start out as a victory celebratiion but will end with looting because free stuff is free stuff.

      PGiddy in reply to UserP. | April 20, 2021 at 8:01 pm

      Since the jury couldn’t have covered all th evidence in that time, we know evidence wasn’t the primary factor.

        mark311 in reply to PGiddy. | April 21, 2021 at 3:59 am

        I don’t agree, the case hinged on a couple of points. 1) How did Floyd die and 2) Was the manner in which Chauvin act significantly depart from proper procedure etc. It may well be that the Jury already had a clear idea in there own minds on the answer to those questions.

          Char Char Binks in reply to mark311. | April 21, 2021 at 8:11 am

          They decided guilt before they were selected for jury duty. That’s why they were chosen.

          @Char Char Binks

          Clearly not, There is no mechanism by which what you say could be carried out. There are clearly issues surrounding the publicity surrounding the trial but that’s why there is a robust jury selection system in the first place. Unless you can actually demonstrate what you say has a foundation it strikes me that really what you are railing against is the verdict not the basis on which is has been reached.

          @Barry – as usual you have no idea what you are talking about. Its impressive that every single adjective used in your statement is false.

      Virginia42 in reply to UserP. | April 21, 2021 at 8:03 am

      In Minneapolis, at least, we have a Soviet style “justice” system.

I hate to think that America was is, and now America is was.

    WAIT A MINUTE

    A black cop intentionally kills a trespasser on Jan 6 with a gun and prosecutor decides not to press charges.

    A white cop – uses non-lethal force on a Black man who OD-ed and he gets effectively LIFE IN PRISION.

    Shouldn’t we be the one’s rioting ? (We meaning all who still care about justice in America – regardless of race.)

      The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Ben Kent. | April 20, 2021 at 9:36 pm

      They know we won’t riot, or in fact do anything. So, they get away with it. Civilized people are laying down and taking it. The question is: for howong?

ThePrimordialOrderedPair | April 20, 2021 at 5:27 pm

Chauvin is found guilty of three different crimes for the same act … Interesting how that works.

And not even a single one of those verdicts is reasonable, in any event.

That’s the problem: TWITTER!

Liked it better when everyone’s opinion was not required.

The idiot filling in for Rick Roberts this afternoon on WBAP admitted he didn’t watch the entire trial and revisited the video just recently. His entire decision was based on How can anyone watch that 9 minutes yada yada. Oh, and Four policemen and he was handcuffed yada, yada, yada.

I doubt that is how Rick would have covered it. But Rick is under the weather and hope he recovers quickly so this idiot can go back to making decisions based on feelings.

    legacyrepublican in reply to Edward. | April 20, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    More importantly, how soon we forget the policemen shot and killed in downtown Dallas a few years back. This verdict has profound implications for those in law enforcement.

Ritual human sacrifice in 2021, what a satanic city.

legacyrepublican | April 20, 2021 at 5:35 pm

There is a part of me that says the cops should say now that a guilty verdict is in, they won’t show up to prevent any rioting tonight because they are concerned they might be prosecuted for interfering with breaking the law in doing their. job properly.

    “There is a part of me…”

    Any cop that enforces the law is subject to prosecution for any offense the prosecutor wishes to throw out.

    Justice has been gone for a long time.

      CountMontyC in reply to Barry. | April 20, 2021 at 5:52 pm

      Not just tonight. If I were a Minneapolis police officer I would call in sick for the next month and use that time to find a new job where they support police officers. Let the criminals run Minneapolis until the citizens learn what happens when rule of law is subordinated to ‘social justice’.

    Breaking news! Blue flu outbreak in Minneapolis!

    Char Char Binks in reply to legacyrepublican. | April 21, 2021 at 8:16 am

    They need to take that step.

It was a political show trial.

Elderly immigrants to the US who lived behind the Iron Curtain probably found it uncomfortably familiar.

Welcome to Amerika, comrades.

From a Soviet style political trial to political incarceration.

stupid_dummy | April 20, 2021 at 5:38 pm

RIP America. On the plus side, most of us will be dead by the time the CCP takes over for real. If not, at least we’ll get some Confucianism out of the deal – literally anything is better than SJWs. The tyrannical dictatorship is a downside, but Chinese food for breakfast, lunch and dinner doesn’t sound so bad.

DERSHOWITZ: What Maxine Waters did, coupled with the judge refusing to sequester the jury, will lead to the US Supreme Court ultimately reversing any conviction for Derek Chauvin.

LAalldayLady | April 20, 2021 at 5:52 pm

What ever happened to the investigation into the counterfeiting operation? That’s all police wanted to do, ask Mr. Floyd some questions. That caused him to freak out and we know the rest. Counterfeiting is often symptomatic of a larger criminal syndicate and always goes hand in hand with drug-running ops. Never mind that, as Ellison drones on about “systemic racism.” Is it just me or does he seem extra smug tonight?

George_Kaplan | April 20, 2021 at 5:54 pm

The Noor:Chauvin comparison is invalid.

Noor recklessly shot past his partner to blow away an unarmed White woman who’d called to report a rape, He was declared guilty of third-degree murder and manslaughter, and the woke mob called this racist.

Chauvin helped rookies struggling to restrain a huge Black man resisting arrest and overdosing on drugs and held him for an ambulance. For doing his duty he was found guilty of 2nd degree murder, 3rd degree murder, and 2nd degree manslaughter. Instead of 12.5 years in jail he’s likely looking at 50 or more years – his life is over.

This is sheer lynch mob injustice. Completely disgusting. At least Nelson can demand a mistrial andor appeal since Cahill seems to want to be rid of the case!

I have been the victim of a political show trial, so I know what Chauvin is going through. Hopefully the appeals will work out for him.

    Wow. Hope your situation is/better. Will he be ok in the jail or can he bond out again. I fear for him. 😔😔😔

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to ray. | April 20, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    A close family member was in 1968. Nothing new here.

CRIME WILL SURGE – AGAIN

Why would cops take any chance in this environment ? ?
They will not.

You’re on your own. Be very careful.

    lurker9876 in reply to Ben Kent. | April 20, 2021 at 6:53 pm

    Unfortunately, as we witnessed an arrest of an older white man who pulled out a gun against the BLM folks in Portland, if you stand up to defend yourself, you will be arrested.

    Also, remember January 6…all those people arrested just for being there.

      CommoChief in reply to lurker9876. | April 20, 2021 at 7:27 pm

      Maybe but maybe not. In some States sanity still prevails. IMO everyone should be seriously considering what the environment is, relating to use of force, potential for riots in their current location.

      If after that analysis you think you would be better off in another State then pack up and leave. You do not owe jack squat to a town or State that would essentially abandon you to a mob.

      The folks that don’t do so will not have my sympathy much longer. Nothing else is more important than the lives of your family. Get gone while you are able to sell your home or business for the current level. Find a new job, downsize your home if necessary.

    The fire rises

Unlike Pelosi’s aggrandizing praise of Floyd, his name to me will forever be linked to the death of our centuries-old justice system and the birth of its replacement: Justice by violent mobs.

Twuck Fitter. All you’re going to see on there are morons crowing about justice being served (still time to riot, er, celebrate), when justice was absolutely not served here.

People on Twitter are generally too stupid or too disingenuous to understand anything “real” about the trial and the verdict, and would much rather do their little self-congratulatory, virtue-signaling circle jerk.

Seriously, what WOULD have satisfied these jackals? Public execution there on the spot? No, I’m sure they’d still need to get their riot ya-yas out, even after that.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to UJ. | April 21, 2021 at 8:47 am

    When I saw rioting in Detroit (1967), looting was clearly the goal. Bullets are going to be the only effective solution. Cull the bad apples.

I am more amazed the absolute support for a junkie that was ODing who had a long felony rap sheet. Interestingly enough if the cops just ignored George Floyd he would have been just as dead.

There will be riots and burning tonight. The animals are on the loose.

    “He black.”

    That is all you need to know.

    clintack in reply to Tsquared. | April 20, 2021 at 6:57 pm

    They watched the video and saw Chauvin kneel on Floyd’s neck for 9 minutes 29 seconds while he suffered and died.

    They haven’t heard, or have rejected, any evidence that disagrees with what they know they saw with their own two eyes.

      Barry in reply to clintack. | April 20, 2021 at 10:30 pm

      Actually, as testified to by the states own experts, the “keeling” was not on Floyd’s neck, not that it matters. The criminal home invader Floyd died of a self administered drug overdose.

    samsmom1 in reply to Tsquared. | April 20, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    And his life was worth 27 million!. Geese. His family will be just fine without him with all that money.
    Everyone of these shootings .. why don’t they just obey the policeman and do what he says.

LongTimeReader | April 20, 2021 at 6:26 pm

The bloodlust is not even sated a little, Kim Potter is trending on twitter. They want her scalp next.

ban me if you like but fuck twitter

Maybe they are right

Maybe 2 plus 2 equals 5

that’s where we are at

You can’t convince me that the jury listened to even a minute’s worth of testimony.

One fallout of this is that police departments will no longer be able to put suspects prone on the ground. There are going to be a LOT more deaths and injuries as a consequence.

    lurker9876 in reply to Thatch. | April 20, 2021 at 6:55 pm

    They will not do one thing. What will they do when they need to pick up the next Duante Wright? Nothing. If that next Duante gets back in his car and drive away, the police will do nothing.

    Minneapolis will replace the police with unarmed social workers. Crime is already up but will continue to increase.

    ThePrimordialOrderedPair in reply to Thatch. | April 21, 2021 at 2:42 am

    Most likely, there’s just going to be A LOT more crime and cops will be spending much more of their time at donut shops.

The prosecution will argue at appeal that what good would it had done to sequester a fixed jury

WAIT A MINUTE

A black cop intentionally kills a trespasser on Jan 6 with a gun and prosecutor decides not to press charges.

A white cop – uses non-lethal force on a Black man who OD-ed and he gets effectively LIFE IN PRISION.

Shouldn’t we be the one’s rioting ? (We meaning all who still care about justice in America – regardless of race.)

Is there an over/under dollar amount betting line for property damage yet?

Going forward all messages on social media saying George Floyd died from drugs will be censored and you will have your account removed.

BLM is now requesting that the body cam footage showing the death of George Floyd be removed from all social media platforms.

George Floyd’s lawyer stated they will be having a protest in Texas soon. Scroll up I told you guy’s they are coming to Republican states.

    “George Floyd’s lawyer stated they will be having a protest in Texas soon. Scroll up I told you guy’s they are coming to Republican states.”

    And any guesses what will or won’t happen?

    Meth and fentanyl are now considered essential nutrients. The food pyramid has been revised.

      Yes, and having untreated, pathologically high blood pressure is actually good for your heart, according to the state’s cardiologist. Also, having 90% and 75% proximal occlusions in your major heart arteries is something you should aspire to! It makes your heart better and stronger, just like the super-high blood pressure does! And all of you with badly-diseased hearts be sure to exercise energetically for at least 10 minutes after every fentanyl/meth speedball you eat, because that will also improve your heart health, or at the very least it will have no deleterious effect whatsoever! The “experts” have sworn to it!

texansamurai | April 20, 2021 at 9:02 pm

had an uncle(he’s gone now)who fought in the skies over the pacific–did three tours–he and a wingman survived three complete replacements of his squadron–asked him one time what in the hell that was like–to face that day after day?

he said that after a while it becomes clear to you why you’re there, what your real task is–and after that, you understand that the only things left are the fighting and the dying

Could some please explain to me how one person died (George Floyd) and yet Chauvin was found guilty on three different murder/manslaughter charges.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair | April 21, 2021 at 2:40 am

I have not seen any comments by any of the lawyers on this blog discussing the idea of being found guilty of several different crimes all relating to the same act. I don’t know what the legal reasoning could possibly be – or how the court could even accept such a collection of verdicts when they are, in fact, inconsistent with each other in addition to being multiple counts for the same act.

I really don’t understand how this can happen. There is no difference between finding someone guilty of 2nd degree murder and 3rd degree murder at the same time (over the same act) and finding someone guilty of two counts of 3rd degree murder (or five counts or twenty counts or 1000 counts) for one act.

I would really appreciate if someone could address this directly and explain why the court didn’t throw out the whole set of verdicts, given how insane and inconsistent the collection, as a whole, is.

It is very encouraging to see that many people have such clear sense of justice and that injustice has been done to Chauvin.

You are very wrong about that.

Mr. Branca did an outstanding job of dissecting each day of the trial. Explaining the law and procedures.

Going over the testimony of each witness, direct examination, cross-examination.

The jury convicted based on fear, based on the threat of terrorism.

This miscarriage of justice cannot be laid at Mr. Branca’s feet.

Outrageous of you to even entertain that thought.

Jennifer Siebel Newsom:

George Floyd should still be alive today.
____________

Given the severely-diseased condition of his heart, his chronically high blood pressure, and his habitual abuse of street drugs, what are the odds of that, Jennifer?

Floyd died from a combination of disease factors and drug factors, while under police restraint. Floyd did not die because of the restraint, no matter what you and your Twatter friends prefer to believe.

    ThePrimordialOrderedPair in reply to Observer. | April 21, 2021 at 2:24 pm

    Besides all that, Boy George was driving around wacked out of his mind on a neo-speedball and was suffering serious physical problems from that, too. The chances that he erupted in insane road rage, crashed into someone because he was high as a kite, or crashed into someone because he had a heart attack or breathing problem while behind the wheel, were all pretty good. It was very lucky for anyone in that area that the cops pulled him out from behind the wheel. And the chances that Boy George went to another place to try and pass his counterfeit money – and then got enraged because he wasn’t allowed – were also pretty good.

    Boy George was a ticking time bomb.

So are the charges here cumulative or will the 2nd degree murder supersede the lesser convictions when it comes to sentencing? Also in order for him to be convicted of 2nd degree murder, are they saying the attempted arrest is a felony?

why is the officer firmly pressing his fists into Derek Chauvin’s back to push him off balance?
Anyone else notice this?

That was a Soviet style show trial; plain and simple. Did that cowardly judge wash his hands after the verdict? Did that cowardly jury beg forgiveness from the Mob for even being on the jury? Did that cowardly DA, that cowardly police chief and his cowardly minions thank the Mob for not attacking them? That city is ruled by the Mob with the blessing of the cowardly LIEberals that are supposedly in charge. Typical Blue city all around.

I’m not sure which thread is most appropriate, but have y’all seen this from CNS? My youngest brother shared it with me.

“Prayer of a Weary Black Woman (Dr. Chanequa Walker-Barnes, author of “Prayer of a Weary Black Woman,” gives a speech. (Photo credit: YouTube/TheoEd Talks) supplicating, “Dear God, please help me to hate white people. Or at least to want to hate them….I want to stop caring about their misguided, racist souls, to stop believing that they can be better, that they can stop being racist.” She also prays that she won’t just hate the Trump supporters and Fox News viewers.
