Glad to see this thread remained live throughout the trial and the right verdict was provided. Really can't see any grounds for an appeal but no doubt they will come up with something.

I think the additional cases will be a lot harder to prosecute as they will need to be able to prove that they were aware that what he was doing could kill him and that they willfully ignored what Chauvin was doing.

So is that odd little Asian looking thing going to be charged as an accessory to murder?

He was found guilty because he is. Simple

Plenty of publicity about how George was on drugs/ having heart issues / sold his gran for crack or whatever that nobody's worried about swaying a jury eh?

Hopefully it's a start in terms of actual reform and change.

And hopefully the appeal is dismissed as quickly as they reached the verdict

Sounds painful that

I would have thought cuffing behind the back and a spit hood is sufficient for anybody

They need a bollock clamp. Doesn’t matter how big, strong, intoxicated or adrenaline filled you are; you will stop in your tracks with a compressed conker

So the cameras made up the 9 and half minutes of Chauvin kneeling on Floyd's neck? Either that or Floyd was attacking Chauvin's knee with his neck.

I think the video of him kneeling on the bloke until he died
Was the most damning. The social outcry for justice was more a sideshow.

Found guilty........Hardly surprising considering its worldwide publicity that COULD have influenced the jurys decision massively.......Appeal being drawn up as we speak.......

yep - guilty of all charges

my understanding is that the other officers involved can now be charged with related charges in subsequent individual cases
