LOL do your magic my friend
I think the sooner the better...
We need to get @geevee here.
I live in Minnesota - everyone is on edge.
I think he's already resign to the guilty verdicts.
So I don't think he will have much reaction at all if any.
I'm not shocked at all. I thought that deliberations would be shorter than it actually took.
Good luck to you all in Minnesota and hopefully things will get better. RIP George Floyd.
The verdict will be read aloud in court between 3:30 and 4:00 p.m. local time (2030 GMT to 2100 GMT), the court said.

"...In the downtowns of cities across the U.S. and around the world, windows are being boarded up; police officers are being ordered to cancel holidays; and the world awaits a jury's verdict..."
Here are the potential charges:
Second-degree unintentional murder - Killing a human intentionally, but without premeditation or causing a death unintentionally, while intentionally inflicting or attempting to inflict great physical harm on the victim. (Second-degree murder is sentenced to up to 40 years in Minnesota)
Third-degree murder - A depraved-heart or mind murder, which places others in eminent danger of death and disregarding human life. (Third-degree murder is sentenced to up to 25 years in Minnesota)
Second-degree manslaughter - The person's culpable negligence when the person creates an unreasonable risk, and consciously takes chances of causing death or great bodily harm to another. (Second-degree manslaughter is sentenced to up to 10 years or a fine of not more than $20,000, or both)
Nelson was working on preserving evidence for the appeal during the trial because they knew this jury will vote guilty. JMO
I'm hoping once the verdict is read that it will feel like Christmas.
Nancy Grace had a murder case that only took the jury fifteen minutes to return a verdict. Iirc, it was a death penalty case too.
Others have been much shorter too.
It must be awful to #1 Not be able to discuss the trial with people close to you and #2 to be sequestered. So straight to business for them. I was on a sexual assault jury once and to not be able to talk about it was so stressful, I dreamt about it.
I have close friends who live there. They think there are going to be 'problems' there even if he's found guilty on all the charges.
I'll turn on news when I get to MIL's if it's already read in the 5 minute drive then I have another fact to support my Verdict karma. Verdicts read while driving.
Me too. A friend works at Children's in the city and is anxious to get out of work and get home.
I would say the facts fit 3rd degree murder or second degree manslaughter.
That's exactly what I'm hearing as well.
No problem Chelly. (Usually I'm the one taking up space )
