    • The travesty of justice would be if the police officer would walk.If you charge him with 1st degree murder he likely walks. If you charge him with something you can prove more easily, you have a good liklihood of seeing some justice. With police officers there is a ton of nuance in the criminal code and it is partially why so many of them are no convicted for their wrong doing. The other part of this is public outrage leads them to be overcharged in some cases (or if you want to play the systemic racist card you can argue that prosecutors purposefully overcharge). To prove the higher charges you are showing, you need to prove intent and a level beyond gross negligence.    I was listening to the mayor of Cincinnati on the radio today talk about police rules of engagement. He said in cincinnati, police are banned from doing any chokeholds and any maneuvers to the neck (have been since 2004). In Minneapolis such procedures are part of the standard operating practice. It makes it much tougher to overcome that in Minneapolis when it is part of standard operating procedures than it would be in other cities which ban that practice. Hence, it is more likely to result in a conviction if you charge with a more reasonable charge like manslaughter given the circumstances. 
    • Sorry, I'm not going to engage in a competition over who cares more or who is upset more. You certainly have the right to be upset over what happened last night -- as do I. But this is a thread for development and looking ahead. It's never as bad as you think.
    • You can be both against the horrible murder of George Floyd AND the destruction of innocent peoples' property.  It doesn't have to be one or the other.  Stop trying to make everything so black and white, one or the other.  It's just another tactic used to divide people.  Just because somebody says, "Man, these riots really suck," doesn't mean they don't emphasize with the original goal of the peaceful protests.
    • How about your pedophile president w his when the looting starts the shooting starts? How about trump encouraging police mistreatment of people a while back?      Let's ask MLK what peaceful protests did for him... got him killed by another whitey..    go back to your conservative circle jerk
