Justice is served.
Much more needs to be done, but yes, its a start. No black people should die in the first place but this is a step in the right direction. May he rot in hell.
Hell's just another convenient idea, as is religion.
Hell's just made up and agreed with - but prison is real.
I hope this pile of sh!t gets his in prison, agonizingly slowly, with a knee to his neck.
It's time for racism to finally stop!
Someone,somehow will find a way to get to him. For instance, someone is preparing his food aren't they?
I'm glad that this murderer has been found guilty and I hope that his sentence will be long. I'm pleased by the outcome but I don't feel relief. This is just one time that justice has been served.
I also hope that Chauvin is safe in prison. When a fight breaks out, it puts guards' lives in danger as they need to separate, contain and protect prisoners. When someone dies in prison the guards and authorities who run the prison have to justify the actions they took and prove they followed protocol and safety measures. Being a prison officer is already a stressful job with a high turnover. I don't want anyone else to be hurt, physically or emotionally, because of Chauvin's actions. Prison violence is terrible and we shouldn't condone it any more than any other violence. Let the line of violence he started end here.
The murder of George Floyd lies at the feet of every officer that witnessed Chauvin's previous behavior and said nothing. Not until all good officers speak up will the people be safe from abuse of power and plain murder by police. The police unions need to be stripped of so much power.
