    Yes. Not only did I only represent whites, the DA allows me to pick my cases and only prosecute people of color. Moron.
    I have noticed you have a tendency not to believe facts, so that is not surprising.

    I notice you a tenuous relationship with facts.

    Pot kettle black. Your choice of facts are so out of context at times. Sometimes an unbiased opinion like mine, who is against violence, regardless of party affiliation or the color of the perpetrator's skin can see the Capitol riots for the pure violence they were, and a cop like Chauvin as a smug murderer and dirty cop who deserves a lot of years behind bars.

    I have NEVER supported those who loot, commit crimes, or carry guns out in the streets, and I do believe there are good cops who have a much tougher job because of the dirty cops.

    sentencing is a joke, but at least it’s something I guess…

    I THINK 15 in MN is a possibility. Chauvin spoke briefly before sentencing. He had to be careful as to what he said, but he offered condolences to the Floyd family and then this very Trump like comment:

    "He added, somewhat cryptically: “There’s going to be some other information in the future that would be of interest, and I hope things will give you some peace of mind.”

    standards and expectations have dropped so low that 10 years more than the min and just 22.5 yrs with the possibility for parole after 15 is supposed to be incredible for murdering someone in broad daylight on camera

    Yeah I had the same thought too. What really struck me was no sense of responsibility out of him.

    This wasn’t something sudden that happened out of quick second decision, it wasn’t an accident and it was something that as several officers testified too wasn’t part of training or policy. He had a vigorous defense and still has the possibility of parole. Instead of showing remorse he hints at some evidence that wan ant presented before that is somehow going to make things right.

    ...maybe he's got the dope on where the Chinese got those fancy ink pens they used to doctor up those bamboo ballots that cheated the Donald out of the last election.

    ...or, maybe he's got the testimony of one of the patrons at that bar he and Floyd were rumored to have been seen in together, who'll cop to how Floyd was tipping all of the waitresses with a wad of fake twenties that his keen police skills was able to deduce.

    If Chauvin keeps his mouth shut and he gets housed in the prison's ad-seg, he'll have his worthless carcass out inside of five years, where he can be the guest of honor at the Donald's second presidential inauguration.

    ...or...

    ...he gets tossed into the general prison population and we see neither hide nor hair of him for the rest of our lives.

    ...or his...whichever ends first...

    This scenario makes Chauvin's cryptic comment make sense.

    "I still think he's going to end up with a federal deal and end up in federal prison," said Michael Bryant of Bradshaw and Bryant, which was not involved in the Chauvin case. "So, I don't think it's going to matter."

    Bryant and other legal experts told KARE 11 that a federal plea bargain might include an agreement by Chauvin not to appeal his state conviction. In court, Chauvin seemed to refer to these federal charges when he told the Floyd family: "There's going to be some other information in the future, that would be of interest, and I hope things will give you some peace of mind." Although he mentioned legal matters more generally, Chauvin did not specifically say anything in court about his pending federal case."
