    Ha, I was thinking the same thing. Apparently it’s okay if it’s for the cause you believe in

      • I’ll be shocked if Chauvin isn’t convicted on at least the 3rd degree murder account and hope he’s convicted of second degree murder. I haven’t followed the trial as closely as I wanted but have read a bit and listened to some podcasts in it. It’s clear the police department is not covering for him. The testimony against him has been pretty brutal and rightfully so.

        I just hope that with a guilty verdict that the rioting is minimal.

          It would be nothing compared to a "not guilty" verdict.

          • Verdict reached. Pretty quick. This probably isn't good for Chauvin right?

              Not that quick. Hasn't it been almost two days of deliberations?

                It’s been less than a day. Closing arguments were yesterday. That was very quick to get a verdict. Chauvin is toast.

                            • Out of curiosity, was Chauvin's record which involved multiple complaints and discharge of his firearm highly unusual? IIRC he had already previously shot and killed someone.

                              I'm a little bothered by the 2nd degree murder charge/conviction combined with the crazy mob atmosphere surrounding this trial. I think a manslaughter charge and conviction was clearly justified, it seems like his conduct plainly showed reckless disregard. Chauvin is a dirtbag, but I don't like the idea of anyone who is being prosecuted simultaneously becoming a scapegoat with so many parties aligned against him -- mayor, governor, AG, federally elected officials, normally high-priced attorneys working pro bono for the prosecution, a rioting mob, the media in near unanimity. Of course, I also think the conviction that Nevada got against OJ was also insane and that he was being punished for his acquittal back in 1995. If the process is unfair for the shittiest amongst us then it's that much easier for it to be unfair for the poorest and most unfortunate too.
                              Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

                                From what I heard explained, in MN, 2nd degree unintentional murder is a charge of felony assault that causes death.. I don't think that's a stretch here.
