The Chauvin trial is riveting

We knew about the video of course, but to learn of so many other pieces. The amazing witnesses - wow.
What are the odds that one witness is an EMT and one witness is a mixed martial arts trained person.
I still can't believe the irony of those two being there and their unrelenting reactions says it all.

Another piece of information that is so compelling, the young woman video filming.
She is 17 years old and has the stamina to stand there through the whole thing and provide a quality record.
PLUS, she knew she was responsible for her 9 year old cousin and had the fortitude to tell her to go inside Cub foods.
A 17 year old witnesses something so traumatizing and did NOT forget about the 9 year old in her charge.

In CONTRAST
X4 COPS did nothing to care for their charge. Wow!

1. It will be interesting to see who the defense calls up as witnesses

It's my understanding that the prosecutors will be calling up more law enforcement to testify against Chauvin. No doubt the defense will have their own medical examiner who will refute whatever the prosecution's presents.

Regardless, George Floyd would still be alive if it wasn't for Chauvin.

2. The Chief of Police testifies on Monday first thing.

I found it helpful to watch the youtube clips of both sides opening statements.
They lay out the plan for the trial.


Justice MUST prevail with this trial!

3. Riveting is the word. I'm consumed by it... planning my life schedule around it.

4. Everyday random Americans have more caring, concern, responsibility, and intelligence than

the people who have sworn to uphold the law and public good.
