#1 Derek Chauvin trial: Pig's head left at former home of defense witness

#2 Once again, my former home town covers itself in glory. Getting burned out of that now shithole in 2017 has turned out be quite the blessing. It was once a beautiful town. The Dems took care of that as they tend to do.

#3 There will be rioting no matter what the verdict. In the unlikely event that Chauvin is acquitted, there will be rioting, led on by Maxine Waters. If he is convicted, there will be rioting in celebration.

#4 By the government's failure to quell riots, it encourages more of the same.

#6 Nobody knows what the jury will do. It's fun to make predictions, but the predictions are close to worthless.

Once the jury retires, the next thing we are likely to hear from them is a series of notes asking for clarification of the instructions given by the judge. Those notes will be dissected and poured over like Japanese radio traffic on the eve of Midway.

But I think Rambler #3 is right. The situation reminds me of The Guns of August, where the armies have been mobilized and are spoiling for a fight. The jury verdict will be like one last diplomatic communique before the armies cross the frontiers.

An interesting issue is how the judge will handle the announcement of the verdict. I don't know what Minnesota law allows, but you would hope the judge is able to allow the jurors to be removed to an undisclosed location (like New Zealand) before the verdict is made public.

#10 Spare the Rod - Spoil the Child.

And these are children who have been allowed, by design, to throw a temper-tantrum in the china shop for months-on-end. When the rod comes - which it must one-way or another, and reality hit them in the face hard, it will get very ugly very fast.

#11 Followed by mass hires based on skin color?

Of course not. That would be racist.

Instead, selection will be made based on group membership, declared gender identity, and also some affirmative action to redress un-enumerated historical grievances.

#12 What I came away with from covering criminal court back in the day is that if I was charged with something serious that I did not do, I would take my chances with the judge. Crime reporters (when being honest) all have more horror stories about the casual stupidity of jurors than a grizzly bear has hairs on its hide.

If I was a cop I would not resign (thus opening my position to political racial replacement) but just engage in 'on-the-job retirement.'

#14 They need to get a jury of 12 suicidal individuals wracked with guilt to pose as the real jurors for the cameras and everything while the real jurors watch on video from a bunker somewhere.

It's like the third world drug countries where judges have to wear black masks to cover their identity to protect their families.

#16 Judge isn’t happy with Mad Maxine.

Judge Cahill to Chauvin defense attorney Eric Nelson: "I'll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned."
