How are you doing?
Praying you stay stafe, and your city.
There are peaceful protestors and then there are opportunistic thugs
The jury has entered the courtroom and is preparing to read the verdict.
Oh gosh, I don't even want to think far ahead but if he is convicted, I'm sure they'll file an appeal. Imagine the public reaction if he is convicted, appeals, and IF IF IF conviction is overturned or a new trial granted or anything else in his a favor.
Well - I'm not going to think further down that rabbit hole now. Eagerly and anxiously awaiting to see what the jury decided.
Oh, I guess I missed that...thanks...
Where are you watching the verdict? I have court tv and law and crime on lol oh and ofc websleuths
Judge said they would do jury questions by Zoom so we wouldn't know about any of them, if they had any.
I remember where I was when the OJ verdict was read.
I will always remember being here with you all ❤️.
oh I hope she stays safe, and you and other loved one's as well.
I am far removed and feel nervous for the city stay safe all.
I think the delay is to make sure that all security and National Guard are in place in the area. I know that mayors of many cities have been preparing for this so I would imagine the wait is security driven with plans needed for jurors, families of Mr. Floyd and the defendant and all city/state workers.
Cos this is history being made and sharing it is important.
palms are sweating
Finally at a TV....NBC showing ariel view, 1000 already at court house.
I was 7, in the 60s, during riots in my town. I was so scared and afraid. So many on both sides were hurt and suffered loss. It leaves emotional scars for all, especially children.
I pray for comfort for all tonight. Bless all the children.
I like PBS. No talking heads.
I don't think that will be the case... and you know how I feel about the case
I don't know. Those who do riot and stuff usually do so out of a desperate sense that society doesn't value their lives. If there is some sort of reasonable verdict against Chauvin, we are unlikely to see much of that sort of thing. I can't recall any rioting after verdicts convicting LE of a serious crime in connection with one of these cases.
I'm not in Minneapolis but my neighborhood in Manhattan has been very active in protests, etc. We are watching - people are definitely paying attention. I don't expect tonight to be quiet.
Noting to watch LATER:
