Chauvin sentencing.

his mother: "I believe a lengthy sentence will not serve Derek well."

it will serve justice. I started watching the sentencing as it was ongoing so it may already be known, but just wanted to comment on this. Apparently his mother never watched the video of George Floyd's murder.

I am entirely unswayed by this woman. I did watch the video, in the context of the trial. It took me that long to watch it because I knew it was horrific.

shoulda been a 1st degree conviction imo. he had almost 10 minutes to decide to murder George Floyd.

ETA now his lawyer. someone i hold in contempt and will probably not listen to today.

ETA 22 1/2 years.

1. I believe, that technically speaking, he was not guilty of first degree murder...

because he did not do it with premeditation.

Otherwise, I agree with you. It was an horrific murder. And he deserves what he got.

30 years is justice.

2. Same here barbtries.

Serving justice is what we need to see. Derek’s mom can go home.

ETA: She said the sentence for her son would be a sentence for her. Narcissistic statement, IMO.

5. entirely unpersuasive.

go watch the video of what your son did, THEN stand there and tell people what a great guy he is.

3. Im glad I am not watching... just reading updates.

I refuse to listen to that murderer or anyone who defends him or his actions. fuck him.


I will say, in seeing the photo of chauvin speaking...he looks pretty scared. GOOD


Not so tough now are ya, buddy? I want to see a split screen of his face looking at the camera as he murdered George Floyd, that sneer and agression, even pleasure in his eyes...
and now, in an ill-fitting suit, crazy scared eyes, trying to look so unintimidating...

yeah, fuck him...if he doesnt get full sentence, take to the streets!

6. he will.

news articles will probably provide the minimum time he'll have to serve.

In CA, a determinate sentence means the victim's family cannot weigh in on parole requests. My daughter's killer got 4 years, she was out in 2 years 3 months, and there was not a goddam thing i could do to change that. MN may be different however.
