The trial for Derek Chauvin is underway. He’s the former Minneapolis police officer accused of murdering George Floyd. What happened to Floyd is despicable and arguably very preventable. But Chauvin is accused of murder. It’s difficult to prove he intended to kill Floyd.
Today’s read is from the always provocative Ann Coulter. Here’s an excerpt:
Week One was chock-a-block with weeping bystanders wailing about how they felt watching Chauvin restrain Floyd. This would be tremendous evidence if the charge against Officer Chauvin were “first-degree upsetting bystanders.” But that’s not the charge. That’s not even a crime.
One especially distraught witness, Charles McMillian, an elderly black man, testified to seeing “foam” coming out of Floyd’s mouth.
QUIZ: Is foam coming out of the mouth a sign of:
a) a head wound?
c) a drug overdose?
