Good.  Now when the jury holds those power-drunk, murderous, heartless, f*ckers accountable, maybe we've started to get somewhere in considering perhaps doing something in the general direction of solving America's police gang problem.

Judge Cahill to Chauvin defense attorney Eric Nelson: "I'll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned."


Will Maxine Waters ever learn what "good trouble" is and when will she learn to just STFU??

Nah. Judge making that admission means they're looking for any excuse available to help get the cop off.

She made some comments this weekend to the effect of "we'd better get a guilty verdict" while speaking to the crowd in Brooklyn Center.  Defense brought it up as an issue since the jury wasn't sequestered at the time.  Judge admits that they can probably cite that if they end up appealing the verdict, but that he wasn't going declare a mistrial over it.

SurfaceTension: And Derek Chauvin has no honor.


If he had any honor he would have offed himself or made it his life mission to raise money for organisation that helps black folks or waged a crusade against police brutality or something.

Nope. Same old white supremacist power hungry POS.

I don't think the judge is doing anything unusual.  But I wish that they had sequestered the jury rather than just telling them not to watch the news.

I think people are misinterpreting this. Another forum I frequent is populated by lawyers and they say this is very common. Defense asks for a mistrial, judge, who gets no vote on whether an appeal is granted, says "eh take it up on appeal if you don't like my ruling."
 
2021-04-19 9:10:09 PM  
It's entirely probable a healthy person could have survived. Who cares.

We know modern police training takes enough of that into account that sitting on ones neck or back in a prone state is not acceptable.

Manslaughter at best.

The judge already handed the defense this issue for appeal on a silver plater when he refused to sequester the jury. Him talking about Maxine Waters today was just an audition for a Fox News commentator position.

There was a lot made today about whether Chauvin was being a "reasonable police officer". And the problem is that though he obviously is not a "reasonable police officer", he sure as hell is a typical police officer.

I bet it FELT like the grinch's heart grew three times that day,

The judge is telling the solicitor that a guilty verdict should be overturned because a member of the community their client murdered said mean things on the internet, and you think it's her that's the problem?

The police trainers the prosecution had on the stand said that what Chauvin was totally unacceptable and not trained practice.

Chauvin could have very easily done something simple to save George Floyd's life. He could have just stood up. He chose not to and now George Floyd is dead.

As he casually has his hand in his pocket while he kneels on his neck and waits for Floyd to die is what would have me voting to convict.

Something about needing to find him Chauvin guilty which may help the defense argue for a mistrial on the theory the jurors couldn't have maintained freedom from outside influence, a key tenet of our legal system here in the United States.

"Well, we were going to find him guilty but an uppity Congresswoman from another state said some things about the case so that probably influenced the jury. No punishment or reform is needed now and it's all her fault."
