  1. These comments show that America has a long way to go.

  2. JW backed “dime a dozen” Attorneys now. must be that much easier now to sit in a classroom for 8 years to comfort this profession “(Affirmative”). Making ‘em judges on TV, I guess to intimidate as a front person for The JW’s Hollywood style. Better make sure you keep that attitude in the court room

  3. A long time coming…….Already

  4. I'll accept the perfect storm to give us the first taste of positive change. Other cases can now refer to it as "police should be held to accountability for criminal brutality."
    Gone are the days when we can accept looking the other way when inequity is happening. The public will not remain quiet.
    Police should have our respect. But respect that is earned by responsible actions not demanded by intimidation.

  5. You mean it took intimidation from Wacko Maxine Waters!

  6. Perfect storm = Threatening the jury

  7. Yes, Chauvin should be punished for his crime committed i the death of Floyd! However, if we think of the fact that not just the life of Floyd’s were lost, but there are even more lives lost now that Mr. Chouvan’s crime has taken the lives of him and his family, possible kids too! That, in itself is sad too!
    I’ve noticed the jubilation of thousands, which also is sad! A life lost is a life lost, irrespective of race, color, or creed! God told us to not “gloat in others sorrow”. The tempo of citizens worldwide showed the opposite of God’s commandment! And I reiterate, Chouvin should show some Semblance of punishment for his behavior on that day Floyd were killed, All four offices involved! And yes all four should be punished equally, but in a more humane way, as we all know, there’s not a single punishment will rendered will give Floyd back his life! Believe it or not God took him away from us because he had other plans for his life!
    Mr. Chauvin did what he did because God allowed him to ! But God will deal with Derek Chouvan on his own term, it’s not left to us!
    If I had a say, I certainly would not have confined Mr. Chouvan to a jail cell, give him a job taking care or touching black citizens, I. E., nursing homes, hospitals,etc. there he might discover that blacks are not as bad as he thought/were taught! His pay would be minimum wages before taxes!he would have that job for the duration of his sentences!
    I see this time as a very sad time for America,and we should all be praying for our country instead of gloating in each other’s sorrows! We should all practice forgiveness instead hate! We have nothing to gain when we practice hate, which begets hate!

  8. Hate to say the obvious but as a ex cop he isn't gonna last long In prison.

  9. This country has a serious jogger problem

  10. Sympathy for criminals, welcome to bidens america.

  11. It took an OJ Simpson jury to make this happen. This verdict was racist.

  12. It took the same backing that screwed the election. REMEMBER TO SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR LIBERALS

  13. 27 Million!
    Well we're movin' on up (movin on up)
    To the east side (movin on up)
    To a deluxe apartment in the sky.
    Movin' on up (movin on up)
    To the east side (movin on up)
    We finally got a piece of the pie.

    Fish don't fry in the kitchen;
    Beans don't burn on the grill.
    Took a whole lotta tryin'
    Just to get up that hill.
    Now we're up in the big leagues
    Gettin' our turn at bat.
    As long as we live, it's you and me baby
    There ain't nothin wrong with that!

  14. It all comes to accountability. And morals. If there’s no accountability, there’s no law . As it applies by two standards. Past time for change.

  15. Let’s pray it’s not the last perfect storm. This type of behavior can not be allowed to occur. There’s a need for civilian review boards. Police have had till now to police there own ranks. What we see is an increase in this type of conduct. And yes I have officers in my family. And yes I’m aware of how they feel about being in front of a review board of civilians. But this needs to happen.


  17. The elites continue trying to stoke Anger & Division

  18. This is not going to end they're still talking about the capital incident they're still talking about the former president and they're still going to talk about using race and the myth that cops are hunting down black people the media doesn't sensationalize the two and a half times more unarmed white men are killed three times in many white people are killed then black people in fact more white people are killed than Black and Hispanic combined but you can't name any of their names

  19. Jury intimidation by mob mentality that's all it took DUH

  20. I can't breave 🤣😅🤣

  21. They are blaming everyone else for their purge but the dummies dont realize their will be hundreds more like floyd. They are purging themselves, they dont need others to do it.

  22. About like the storm they went threw frauding the election

  23. A perfect storm of the president praying for a guilty verdict, and Maxine Waters flying across the country to incite violence if he’s not found guilty

  24. It was a no brainer , convict chauvin or watch cities burn throughout the country . The country couldn't afford such a super spreader event . Remember kids don't break laws and when you do , go in peacefully without resistance, because through escalation, you too could be another Floyd .
