  1. Everyone saw a man in handcuffs get smothered to death, but many people's personal biases allow them to interpret the evidence differently. One look at all the Not Guilty comments confirms this.

  2. Jury nullification should be in every jury instructions. But this former cop should be found guilty on every charge and sentenced to the the maximum the law will allow.

  3. Well we will all see how this ends up. If he walks, the country recieved it's warning already that we are looking at another Rodney king riots on steroids. This whole thing has been one big mess with derecks Supporters online that clearly have been provoking matters. If anyone lived in a city where Rodney king riots taken place. Nobody should of been provoking this during the trial. The one week of the Rodney king riots let to 64 deaths and billions in destruction of buisnesses. It is just wrong with wanting our economy back after this long year of the pandemic for Trump supporters angered at democratic controlled cities to be out here provoking these matters further.

    The courts needed to deal with this, no one else. Trump/dereck Supporters are knowing what the BLM and others will do really made me aggravated knowing the destruction of our economy coming if he walks, of course with being against democratic cities, they are looking to put the blame on BLM, Antifa and Biden if dereck walks when nobody else but them are furling these flames. I just hope that the BLM or anyone finds out who supported dereck and targets them if dereck walks, no one else and I hope the BLM and Floyd's Supporters take a step back and realize not to year down our economy further if dereck walks. We are in sad times and our economy really needs to do a about face without these additional problems.I hope the jury finds him guilty personally.

  4. The defense Attorney is a quack. He tried to blame Floyd rather then have his client take any responsibility. If he thinks his client doesn’t deserve any responsibility for keeping his body on top of Floyd for over 9 minutes and 32 seconds. He isn’t a very good attorney. The dude is guilty.

  5. I see the comments saying defense has nothing, ALSO may I mention… the Prosecutors have nothing. Thats why they changed their case to on the neck to the neck area because of the different angles we were able to see. And his knee wasn’t on his neck continuously for 9 min like you guys thought. That’s why we have different angles in football. But whatever. If hes acquitted, the media should be in fault for not telling people the full picture. They only tell you what you think you should hear. Be ashamed of yourselves.

  6. Who has reported that the “knee on the neck” has been disproved in court & now is being called “knee on the back”??? Anyone?? If you’re a skeptic, watch the trial and don’t rely on the media to do it for you. Reasonable doubt.
