The guilty verdict for 2nd-degree murder against Derek Chauvin was a sad day for this country. Chauvin deserved some punishment for failing to notice his detainee had stopped breathing, but he did not murder George Floyd. And the pressure put on the jury to make sure there was a guilty verdict was shameful.

Every potential juror said they feared the BLM mob would come after them. They were right and it’s unsurprising none of them chose to roll the dice. This is the same tactic the KKK used to intimidate juries back in their heyday.

Even worse was politicians like Biden exerting undue influence by saying “I’m praying the verdict is the right verdict, which I think it’s overwhelming in my view,”. The Minneapolis mayor chimed in as well as Rep. Maxine Waters too. 

We must have one standard for justice in this country. This cannot be it.

How is anyone going to get a fair trial if BLM scares all the jurors into compliance?

No “fair” trials, NO more “Free and Fair” elections – that is WHAT this country has come to…..sadly….EVERYTHING is WORSE now than ever before, just don’t understand that TRUE Americans, black and white, stand for this, instead of STANDING UP/AGAINST this kind of ANARCHY, just like letting blm/antifa still have THEIR way of DESTRUCTIONS/RUINING Lives/businesses….This is SHAMEFUL = UNBELIEVABLY SHAMEFUL for ALL of America…..

GUTLESS WONDER SNOWFLAKES are PC and won’t get involved until it kicking in their front door. Then they will just cower in the corner screaming “Don’t Hurt ME”
BLM , Antifa are just THUGS the Democraps are using just like Hitler used the “Brown Shirts” and “The night of Broken Glass” to terrorize Jews. They try that crap in the western states (Except Commieforna, Oregon) they will find out people here won’t take it long.

Unfortunately I’m sure that most people can see that while the left can loot, burn and kill, when the right goes after the people at fault (Jan.6) the powers that be come after them. Instead of defunding our local PD’s, it seems we should be defunding the FBI, and our so called federal Government. If they can ignore the law of the land, why cant we do the same ? Furthermore it’s time we deal with these liberal states like CA, NY, OR, WA, etc.. If they choose to destroy themselves, fine. But the flood of illegals and now their release of violent criminals is destroying the entire country. Maybe it’s time to wall off both the East and West coasts as well as the southern border. It might be considered anti American , but if something isnt done soon, America won’t survive. It’s time for States Rights to take a stand against the power grab in Washington DC.

They’re not going to. The rule of law is dead. Now it’s mob rule.

Basically, blacks are coercing municipalities to ignore jurisprudence–even common sense and medical data, in this case–to invent a crime committed by their police in order to both receive financial compensation for the injuries or deaths of their brethren, and force law enforcement officials to conform to some protocol of behavior and speech when they’re interacting with these minorities. (Naturally, the black suspects will be exempted from complying with any police interaction protocols…) This coercion consists of the threat of violent protests against American citizens, along with the destruction of their property and businesses, in conjunction with lawsuits and copious media involvement in condemning our police. Our legal system is constructed to carefully avoid the coercion of judges and juries to render verdicts based upon popular opinions and conjecture. This hapless officer, like many before him, has witnessed the travesty of justice orchestrated by cowardly and compliant jurists to ‘comply’ with the prevailing judgments rendered by people who have their own interests to advance.

Too bad there wasn’t at least one person on the jury who had the guts to stand up for justice. I know, it is easy for me to say because I wasn’t on the jury, but we need brave people now more than ever.

I have seen chickenshit cowards go with a hung jury because they were afraid the criminals would come kill them after the trial was over. It made me sick but I was young and stupid and didnt call them on it.

I agree.. the problem as I see it.. too many foreigners who were not raised here in America missing educational opportunities coming into the country past the age… the educational system has failed to teach history and civics as once taught; so many of our own children for lack of real education and parents not teaching them too busy working to pay rent.. they just don’t know better.. as a child I was taught every American anthem there was.. as part of the music lesson.. these kids don’t even know the pledge of Alliance that our country is a Republic.. do not know the National Anthem.. and much less the Lord’s Prayer.. America has fallen apart at the seams.. No honor to the veterans who fought to keep this country FREE.. just a total disgrace

Like it or not we have to start somewhere, so how about taking a stand in our classrooms. Let’s put a parent in every classroom, to monitor what’s really being taught. Sorry to say this, but I’m guessing that 75% of working parents dont have a clue. Your children are being indoctrinated into communism, taught to hate America, and to hate themselves as well as anyone who happens to be a different color. They’re destroying everything that our ancestors created, then fought and died for. Were a great country, striving to get better. We’ve made mistakes, everyone does. But if we were really a hateful, racist country, do you really believe that people would be willing to die to get in ?
