Paul Craig Roberts on Chauvin "trial"

Minnesota State Officials Emulate Pontias Pilate by Handing over Officer Chauvin

Minnesota State Officials Emulate Pontias Pilate by Handing over Officer Chauvin

Paul Craig Roberts

An attorney who is monitoring the trial of officer Chauvin has concluded that Minnesota officials arranged in advance Chauvin’s conviction.  The attorney is not a member of Chauvin’s defense team.  He is monitoring the trial because of his long-standing interest in the systematic destruction in America of a fair trial.  The details follow:

Minneapolis paid a $27 million settlement with George Floyd’s brother in the middle of jury selection for Chauvin’s trial.  In other words, in effect the city officials admitted Chauvin’s guilt prior to the jury’s determination.  One would have expected Minneapolis to hold on to $27 million of taxpayers’ money until the jury rendered a verdict both for the sake of a fair trial and for the city’s budget.

On the eve of the trial, the district court granted the state’s motion to insert the charge of third degree murder in addition to second degree manslaughter against Chauvin.  The consequence of this for Chauvin was made clear yesterday (March 31) when the Minnesota supreme court handed down a decision on third-degree murder while Chauvin’s trial was underway.  My informant explains that the decision has the effect of allowing Minnesota to convict Chauvin of third degree murder without having to prove that Chauvin intended George Floyd’s death.  In effect, the court’s decision negates the objective evidence of the medical examiner’s report that his examination discovered three times the fatal dose of fentanyl in Floyd’s blood and no life-threatening injuries. ( For the medical report see:  https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2021/03/31/officer-chauvins-show-trial-will-bring-the-end-of-law-an... )

The Minnesota supreme court draws a distinction between third degree murder and second-degree negligence manslaughter: “The manslaughter offense requires the State to prove that the person “ ‘causes the death of another . . . by the person’s culpable negligence whereby the person creates an unreasonable risk, and consciously takes chances of causing death or great bodily harm to another.’ ” State v. Back, 775 N.W.2d 866, 869 (Minn. 2009) (quoting Minn. Stat. § 609.205 (2020)).” 

In contrast third-degree murder “requires an eminently dangerous act that supports an inference that the defendant was indifferent to the loss of life that the defendant’s eminently dangerous activity could cause.”  Thus Chauvin can be convicted of third-degree murder because his knee on Floyd’s neck infers “extreme indifference to human life.” This makes clear the purpose of the eye-witness testimony I reported yesterday: https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2021/03/31/officer-chauvins-show-trial-will-bring-the-end-of-law-an...

In other words, the inference from knee-on-neck is Chauvin’s “depraved mind” indifference to Floyd’s life.  Second-degree manslaughter carries a 10-year sentence. Third-degree murder carries a 25-year sentence.

It certainly looks like a state organized setup to make certain Chauvin is convicted.  On the very eve of the trial a third degree murder charge is inserted and during the trial the Minnesota supreme court rules that third-degree murder only requires the inference of indifference to human life.

It is difficult to avoid the conclusion that the Minnesota establishment has decided to buy off Antifa and Black Lives Matter with officer Chauvin’s conviction.  In the wake of last year’s George Floyd “peaceful protests,” parts of Lake Street in Minneapolis look like postwar Europe before the Marshall Plan.  

Just as Pontius Pilate is believed to have turned Jesus over to the Jews in order to avoid troubles, it seems the state of Minnesota has decided to turn Chauvin over to Antifa and Black Lives Matter.  We will see whether this cowardly and despicable act quiets trouble or emboldens trouble-makers.

Re: Paul Craig Roberts on Chauvin "trial"

Digging deep into your BS pile this morning, aren’t you BA?

The whole world saw what happened with Chauvin.   Just because you and your buddies like Millie, thought it was all just a made for TV stunt starring the “Cash Cab” guy, this WAS REAL.   Another black man was killed by an officer who had sworn to “protect” the people, not kill them by kneeing on their neck until they were dead. 

But that’s your MO isn’t it BA?   Spreading BS like the Covid was just another flu?   What’s the body count you’re responsible for now BA?  You and your Bass Tard president that thought it was all just a hoax too?   Why would anyone listen to a liar like you and the rest of your loud mouth bass tards that still think the second coming of your Bass Tard Trump is imminent?   You’re just another fool, who’s time has come and gone.

Re: Paul Craig Roberts on Chauvin "trial"

I'll not be preached to about science or hoaxes by some one too stupid to know the difference between a boy and a girl. But continue to post. We want you front and center as the face of the modern lying, science denying progressive dem party. May be next post could be about president *'s handling of the security of the southern border and his cages full of covid positive super spreader children he is exploiting to steal future elections. To the the modern science denying dem party kids are nothing but tools to be used to control the larger population. They are treated worse than dogs in kennels.

Thanks for posting that BA, and showing that common sense people around the country can see the bullscat going on with this trial.

it does have similarities to the Easter crucifixion but Chauvin is no Jesus. Both were sham trials, though. If there is a conviction, you know there will be an appeal.

Re: Paul Craig Roberts on Chauvin "trial"

It`s pretty obvious that Chauvin is a sacrificial lamb to keep the Metro complex from burning to the ground.  Too many are dangerously agreeing with the previously funny Chelsea Handler.

Comedian Chelsea Handler received social media backlash on Tuesday after questioning the need for murder trials "when there is audio and video footage of the murder."

Handler made the remarks Tuesday on Twitter while discussing the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer accused of murdering George Floyd on May 25, 2020. Footage leading up to and including Floyd's death, which quickly went viral and sparked worldwide Black Lives Matter protests, shows Chauvin with his knee on Floyd's neck for over nine minutes. Handler suggested that Chauvin should be deemed guilty based on the footage alone, with no need for a trial.

"So pathetic that there is a trial to prove that Derek Chauvin killed George Floyd when there is video of him doing so," Handler tweeted.
