This is beyond absurd. And everything that is wrong with our justice system.

This is the stuff we get for a live murder on film of a cop kneeling on a dudes neck until he dies. Just image what goes on to cover up and sweep away the stuff not caught on film

I haven't been watching the trial because I can't deal with it emotionally, and reading that headline made me want to hurt someone.

That cop needs a **** ing bullet.

its gotten worse every day. The defense is basically presenting a case that murdering black people should basically be ok at the discretion of the officer.

If chauvin gets off, it will set a wild precedent. Basically anything someone says can be interpeted as "assiting arrest" and if you resist arrest anything the cops do to you is fair game

Why cant cops execute a traffic stop without killing someone?

Like why does it always have to result to shots fired. Why cant they apprehend someone alive? why cant it be non-deadly force? dude was pulled over for having stuff hanging from his rearview mirror.

also before we get picutres of the dude smoking a cigarette or made to look like a thug here is the young man with his 2-year old son.

The cops took this young childs father. this kid will grow up knowing that he can be killed just for being blake, because thats what happened to his dad. its so disturbing.

I'm not going to watch this. I already screwed up by watching the Daunte Wright murder. I'm not going to watch a Black child be murdered by these state sponsored lynchings.

After the Philando Castile shooting where I watched him bleed to death in front of his family, I can't mentally handle seeing these snuff films. This stuff does psychological damage to Black people. That video threw me into a state of depression that I don't feel like revisiting.

No need to watch it. having seen it several times, your assumptions are likely correct.

So it has come to my attention that the young child was a Mexican-American boy.

My point still stands, and my anger is still the same. This child should not be dead, and American police are a pack of murderous thugs who should be made to live in fear for what they are doing. Adam could have been White and I would say the same thing. I'm sick of it and sick of these pigs who sleep soundly at night after they murder people.

On all counts... thank the maker.

I'd read some hypotheses a while back that this f-cker would somehow get off, or get off lightly. What an awful precedent that would have been.

Yessir, it's a relief, and a start. I'm thankful.
