    Why would anyone want to continue that as a profession at this point? If it were me, I'd say let the thugs have it, I'll go pick up pop cans on the side of the road. The criminals are saviors and the officers are criminals. Left is right, down is up.... Good lord, where in the world is this society heading?

    I would just stop policing inner cities. Hell, they'll kill each other off in a year or so. Problem solved.

    I heard a police office Major say a few months ago that guys close to retirement were trying to stick it out to get their retirement. Officers with under 15 years of time with the police force were looking for other jobs. I think you will continue to see a mass exit of police officers from these larger cities. Plus you now have states that are ending qualified immunity for police officers. I can't blame them for leaving. No one in these big cities act like they care about the police. They will regret their decisions one day when they really need the police.

    Well, Chaivin was incredibly stupid for doing what he did, knowing that it is no secret that law enforcement is in the spotlight when dealing with certain groups. Because of this, law enforcement will now think twice about certain aspects of certain control measures, but I feel more police will be injured. Since what is good for the goose, the gander as well, it is time for that unknown Capital police shooter to answer for that action.

    I think these big cities will implode over the next 6-7 months, crime has already double and tripled in a lot of areas that have "Defunded" or chose the "No Bail" method. I feel a bit sorry for those folks that are doing their best to lead a normal life in an abnormal place because of these "Woke" politico commie bastards, and as usual it will be the poor and working stiffs that take the brunt of what is coming, so, sooner or later people will need to stand up and fight for their right to live peacefully, and throw these cucks in a ditch for the vulture's to pick on.

    I'm betting fear played a bigger role in the conviction than the evidence did....

    I agree 100%. I'm sure some of these jurists had their own self preservation in mind and their family members.

    Chauvin was 100% responsible for that man's death, imo. You can't keep a knee on somebody's neck like that for nearly 10 minutes. That being said, the politicians weighing in before a verdict have probably opened the door for a mistrial, and will cost taxpayers tons more of $$$ for a retrial. IMO, the bottom line is Chauvin killed George Floyd.

    100%

    On a side note. This dude's attorney was high or something. He couldn't even form coherent sentences at times, stuttered, lost track and sounded incompetent as hell. Was he an appointed attorney? I wouldn't hire him to draft my ex wife's living will. Jurors are human. You have to play with their emotions. It's all one big theatrical performance.

    George Floyd killed George Floyd with stupid life decisions...100%. Don't resist arrest. Must be a new radical concept.... obeying the law.

    Fentanyl killed Floyd. His blood oxygen level was normal, meaning he didn't die from asphyxiation due to the restraint.

    George Floyd only had a “medical dosage” level of methamphetamine at the same time. Obviously that played no role in his death.

    A loaded speed ball surly wouldn't explode a person's heart?

  15. These liberal shatholes will start to implode and you’ll see a mass exodus to states and counties that don’t tolerate it, but they’ll bring their liberal, shit-for-brains ideas with them. Beware.
