Judge at Chauvin trial seems good.

I haven`t watched any of the trial, only clips.  I`m "biased" in that it`d be nice if the jury comes back not guilty because he just hasn`t gotten a fair trial and I tend to root for the underdog.  Prosecution has 15 lawyers, Chauvin has one in his defense, Gayle King (slightly more objective than Kimmel/Colbert news) said "it will be a surprise if jury deliberates long as slam dunk as this trial is".  On top of it all reporting on the trial always includes "the city bracing for violence after the trial", that is like a Mafiaoso telling you "it`d be a shame if your store burns down if you don`t buy insurance from me". 

If this was a fair trial, everyone behaving decently before during and after the trial and unbiased reporting, perhaps I`d be favoring Chauvin getting the electric chair, but as it is I will shed no tears if he gets a light sentence.

BA, I think they will come back guilty on all charges. They know if they don't everything they own will be at risk of burning and their families in danger of losing their lives. They also know Maxine Waters gave them an out because if they decide he is not guilty they can vote guilty and the trial will likely be thrown out.

Re: Judge at Chauvin trial seems good.

3020, that`s exactly what I expect, the jury has their head in a vice like the infamous scene in Casino.


A group of people vandalized the former Northern California home of an expert witness who testified for the defense in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin, police said, throwing a pig's head on the front porch and blood splatter on the house.

The incident occurred in Santa Rosa, California, where retired police officer Barry Brodd once lived and worked. Brodd testified last week in Chauvin's trial, saying the former Minneapolis police officer was "justified" in his use of force against George Floyd, who died in police custody last May.

The Santa Rosa Police Department said Brodd no longer lives at the residence nor in California, but "it appears the suspects in this vandalism were targeting Mr. Brodd for his testimony."

Brodd was the first witness to say he believed Chauvin was following proper police practice when he knelt on Floyd's neck. But several Minneapolis police officers, including the police chief, along with local police trainers and national use-of-force experts, testified that Chauvin's actions were not justified.

"I felt that Officer Chauvin's interactions with Mr. Floyd were following his training, following current practices in policing and objectively reasonable," Brodd said.

Chauvin is facing charges of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Closing arguments in the trial began Monday.

In a statement, Santa Rosa police said they received a call about vandalism at the home around 3 a.m. Saturday.

"Officers arrived to find the front of the victim’s house smeared with what appeared to be animal blood and a decapitated pig’s head near the front porch," the statement said.

The suspects were dressed in black and ran away. 

"Because Mr. Brodd no longer lives in the city of Santa Rosa, it appears the victim was falsely targeted," police said.

About 45 minutes later, a statue of a hand at a nearby mall was also vandalized with what appeared to be animal blood, police said. "The suspects also left a sign in front of the statue which had a picture of a pig and read 'Oink Oink,'" the statement said. A description of the suspects at the mall matched that of the suspects at Brood's former home, police said.  


If BLM crazies are "in the righteous" why do they have to resort to this?

Re: Judge at Chauvin trial seems good.

I've read the judge is intentionally setting it up for appeals.  Wants a guilty now to prevent the city being burnt down, knows a fair trial wouldn't deliver that.    The jury has to know that voting not guilty will put a bullseye on them.

Too bad they didn't find a garage door pull BA, instead of the pigs head, FBI would have 13 agents there for that.
