Preparing For the Derek Chauvin Verdict
« on: April 10, 2021, 05:23:01 PM »

I thought that this was a cogent tweet by Scott Adams:


Quote
Scott Adams
@ScottAdamsSays
I call on our national leaders to START NOW to persuade the public against staging violent protests after the Floyd trial verdict.

If our leaders stay silent, they will all have blood on their hands.

@POTUS
 
@KamalaHarris
 
@SpeakerPelosi

I'm betting that whatever the verdict, to include life in prison, it will not be "good enough" for the usual demographics, and rioting will ensue.

Can't let a "good" excuse to loot go to waste. You picked out a big screen TV yet?

If he got the death penalty (MN doesn't have the death penalty) there would be riots of joy; they look just like protest riots.

Of course.  You don't expect the rats to not take the opportunity to create more fear and mayhem, do you?

I'm following the case and even before the defense has made its case, it's becoming clear that Chauvin is not guilty.

The press of course isn't reporting that, so the furor will be monumental IF the jury comes back with a just verdict.
I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you also were meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought

The media play by play got a lot quieter around the cross examinations.

The amusing part is it has become clear he is not guilty and that is while the defense has not even made their case yet, just done cross examinations.

I feel sorry for the jurors.  They are all probably in fear of their lives.  I predict a guilty verdict for that reason.  Evidence won't matter...only the threat of violence against the jurors.

Yeah, that too. I had read they were keeping the jurors anonymous, but someone in the msm was trying to find out who they were. Journalism.

The New York Times tried hard to find out who they are.

It's going to be a riot, doesn't matter the outcome. Just look at Portland last night. What it's not in the news?

Since there will be riots regardless, might as well hope for a just verdict.

Ought to be quite the fire since the usual suspects are already mostly peacefully protesting another one shot by cop nearby.

Is there anything left to burn?

I'm going to riot either way.

But only after I get home from work, change into my lounging clothes, have a snack and rest a bit.

Events like this certainly do not help ease the tension.

Daunte Wright, 20, was shot after the officer meant to use a Taser, but mistakenly drew her gun instead, Chief Tim Gannon told reporters.
Mr Wright's death has sparked protests and a curfew has been declared.

Watched a ten minute podcast of Stefan Molyneux talking about the recent shooting where the cop shot the perp with her gun instead of the taser. His comments were about the states escalation in the use of force when being resisted, although he acknowledges the officer inadvertently grabbed the wrong weapon in this case.

His point was resisting the state always results in the state escalating their use of force, even up to the point of killing the one resisting. Whenever we advocate for a law, we must consider that ultimately it is backed up by deadly use of force.

Pretty ABC libertarian philosophy, but still a sobering reminder of how much trouble we are in with the permanent leftist government mopping up and taking over complete control of the federal government.

Regarding the OP, this event is gasoline poured all around a powder keg set to go off.

It wasn't an accident. Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist.

Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government funded murder.

No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can't be reformed.

From the comments:  "Defund the Capitol Police"

Excellent idea.

Just mount a belt fed machine gun on each police car doing traffic stops.  Anyone causes any trouble or attempts to flee, the car gets hosed down.  That way the officer doesn't need to have a weapon on him.  This idea works just as well as that Mayor's idea, maybe better.
