    I'm disgusted everyone is treating this like entertainment.

    Riots were the last thing on those jurors, or anyone else's minds after watching that slow and deliberate suffocation. Those tapes were hard to watch. Thank God for those teenage girls who filmed it. The horror of it all will never go away, especially for those witnesses and George's friends and family, but at least Chauvin won't be free to do it again. The other 3 cops are sweating bullets right now.

    I like seeing things when the system works. The evidence was plain and the verdict was just.

    Guilty, finally JUSTICE for ALL AMERICANS....

    All folks want is to have the police follow the same laws as the rest of us.

    Now get rid of implied or Qualified Immunity.

    I'm confident his ilk(Trumpists/right wingers) want riots. It's their way of dismissing any activism for law enforcement reform.

    Some poster are claiming the verdict was swayed due to the pressure of the riot/Biden/Waters. I'm sorry but it sounds like they're making excuses.

    I know that. I'm referring to the people that have wanted the verdict to go a certain way out of fear for riots.

    Also they made these comments when the jury was sequestered. It had no impact on their decision making unless one of the jurors broke the rules which in itself could result in a mistrial.

    I think you're misinterpreting...its not an issue of the verdict being swayed by Biden or other politician influence, its rioters feeling more justified in what they are doing if they know political leaders agree that justice was not served

    There was a ~4 hr media pregame before the verdict.

    Some old paper press even printed those dumb "And the land held its breath as ye verdict awaits!" boilerplate articles that were popular pre-internet.

    I guess it's human nature, but people still consume for a reason.

    But seriously, it would look real bad if they rioted tonight. But then again some people are just opportunistic assholes that doesn't really believe in anything

    This is a large country with many large poor urban communties. There will be an incident somewhere in America and it will be spammed across all right wing media to fuel hatred of any future activism by these communties towards law law reform and economic reform.

    I hope also there is calm tonight across the country. Another thing I fear is bad faith instigators, people like the Bugulo boys or whatever the **** their name is causing conflict.

    I think most people just wanted to see a murdering cop NOT get away with what he did.

    I'm glad that justice prevailed. It would of been a total gut punch if it didn't.

    So are you respecting the verdict or questioning it?
