Tuesday afternoon Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found of guilty of manslaughter in three counts in the death of George Floyd. This is in face of massive forensic evidence that Floyd died of other causes. This is a political verdict that sacrifices Chauvin to the hard left in the hopes the streets of America do not erupt with rioting and looting tonight. This publication has predicted they will, regardless of the verdict. We hope we are wrong.
Joe Biden has tried to influence the situation by hoping the jury comes to the “right verdict.” Not jury tampering, but wildly unethical. Various racist and Marxist radicals like Maxine Waters and BLM have encouraged and threatened violence if the jury dared to acquit Chauvin, regardless of evidence. They seem to have gotten their way. America is injured by this perversion of justice. If the streets do erupt tonight, after a guilty verdict, then the injury and the verdict is all that more unnecessary and absurd.
