Derek Chauvin was just found guilty of all three charges - second and third-degree murder of George Floyd, as well as manslaughter !!!
Equal justice under the law - finally!!!
We now have a precedent - and it's about dang time for a guilty verdict, in these types of cases - especially this one - because there is simply no way, watching that video (and the surrounding building security camera angles) that you could find Chauvin anything BUT guilty.
Floyd simply attempted to use a counterfeit $20 bill and did not resist arrest (all camera angles showed he slipped on the curb), and yet Chauvin used unnecessary force by kneeing his neck, showing zero mercy or empathy while Floyd pleaded he couldn't breathe or while dragging his lifeless body away.
Even most cops themselves thought Chauvin was guilty of murder.
In fact, the only people who didn't, who aren't his lawyers, are very clearly racists/white supremacists, who've been trying to use something, anything, to prove Floyd "deserved" it, when there is nothing.I'm sorry, white supremacists - any prior drug use didn't matter, even prior crimes don't matter - all that mattered is what happened that day.
George Floyd did not deserve to be to die, nor even be treated in that manner - he deserved the due process of law that was promised in our constitution - and you know it!
And anyone claiming otherwise?
You should be ashamed of yourselves - as a white person, as an American claiming to support our constitution, as a self-purported Christian, and simply as a human being!
In fact, especially if you also claim to be Christian, allow me quote the words of Christ, "Woe to you, ye brood of vipers" - I regard you as thieves in my father's house, false prophets, and/or the wolves in sheep's clothing within the church itself that Christ warned us about.
What do you imagine Christ will say to you, when you try to list off your good deeds in the afterlife?
Think again - because Christ warns exactly what will happen to people like you within the church, who do evil in Christ's name, in Matthew 7:22-23 ...
22 Many will say to me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works?"
23 And then will I profess unto them, "I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
Your dark intent, hearts, and souls absolutely disgust my soul, just as these same things disgusted Christ.
But, I digress - let's focus on the positive - we finally have a precedent set for equal justice under the law, not only with regards to race, but on police brutality!!!
Rest in peace, now, George Floyd - we finally did it, this time - we got you. We got you!!! xo
