Guilty, post 2

What was done to George Floyd by Officer Chauvin was inexcusable, morally. But the verdict is very questionable, because of the outside influences of people like Al Sharpton, and people like Maxine Waters. Their threats and intimidation, and hanging the sword of Damocles over the jury, and basically saying if you don’t convict on the murder charge, on all the charges, the cities will burn, the country will be destroyed, seeped into the jury room because the judge made a terrible mistake by not sequestering the jury . . .

What is the point of a guilty verdict (even if it’s the “correct” outcome) when that outcome isn’t reached due to the evidence, but because of external threats? The outcome is the same as a lynch mob, but with an intermediary so the mob can then play Pilate and lay any blame on the jury.

On that note, both sides are using this trial as a proxy battlefield. One side views him as an innocent lamb, while the other side views him as the devilish goat that deserves to be punished, and whose punishment will end all of our social ills. It’s quite sickening.

What happens if at the end of the day Chauvin walks because the convictions are overturned as a result of jury intimidation? Where is the justice in that scenario? There isn’t any.

    For all we know he might have been ordered by higher powers to NOT sequester the jury in order to leave it more vulnerable to the mob. I put NOTHING past those who are in power over us.

    Once again, welcome to post-Law and Order and pist-Justice America.
