    People want to know. And know everything now. Had Floyd shot and killed him he wouldn’t get this much coverage.

    THAT is the problem.

    They make it seem like he was a member of the nazi party and hated black people. He fucked up. The police aren’t rounding people up and putting them in ovens.

    But you’d think they are by some of the shit out there.

    i get the thought that the coverage is overkill. I don't get how that impacts the jury's decision. You said if he walks, it's the media's fault. why do you think that?

    He's saying because the media has been helping to fuel this anti Chauvin sentiment so much so, that if he walks it could be because the jury basically said "fuck you for not giving this man a fair shake and after the evidence we decided he's not guilty".

    Something to that effect. I think.

    I know you're not proposing this as something you believe might happen so this isn't directed at you or anybody in particular for that matter, but that's gotta be one of the dumbest theories I've ever heard.

    To imply that the jury is going to go, "Yeah....he actually probably is guilty based on the evidence and the video but we're gonna find him not guilty because the press has been convicting him in the court of public opinion..."

    Simply makes zero sense.

    Itís more of not being able to be objective because of what has been reported. The dudes family just got millions. Thatís out there. You really think that doesnít sway a jury Mitch? That is admitting guilt before a trial. You donít pay 7 figures to a family for shits and giggles.

    They admitted his guilt before his peers did. They tainted the jury. If he walks, itís the fault of the Don Lemonís, and whoever else fueled this.

    Iím still confused by the line of thinking.

    If he walks, itís the mediaís fault.

    And if heís convicted, itís the mediaís fault as well?

    And yes, I said at the time that they should have announced the civil settlement after the criminal case was concluded.

    Monday would be a good time for Biden to address the nation and reaffirm what he said last summer regarding protests and give Fair Warning:

    there is†"no place for violence, no place for looting or destroying property or burning churches or destroying businesses."

    I highly doubt that'll be the case. But I would think a quick verdict would be good for the prosecution.

    I think they'll be deliberating for a while.

    Quick deliberations are usually a good sign for the prosecution, I believe.

    The longer it goes the better chance there is for an acquittal or at the very least a hung jury.

    Mitch Iíve said it all in this thread. The media and the constant attention and opinions on this and the social commentary have been heard by everyone. If he walks, itís because of that.

    Itís like Don Henley said in dirty laundry. The song is perfect for what I think.

    Like pretty much every major trial thatís occurred in America in the last 30 years.

    This is nothing new.

    But the notion that if he walks, it couldnít be because the prosecution just didnít fulfill their burden isnít one I share, unfortunately.

    To each their own and thatís a good song.

    That would go against everything a democrat politician stands for. They want cities to burn, riots in the streets and blame whitey.
