It seems that a Minnesota jury found Derek Chauvin guilty on all three counts in the death of George Floyd. The jury deliberated less than 24 hours in one of the most hyped trials of this decade. I assume that the verdict was unanimous.
I have participated in dozens, maybe hundreds of jury trials during my 37 year career as a cop. The one firm rule on a jury is you never know what they are going to do. Most of the time, they arrive at the correct conclusion. Other times they whiff it. History will judge whether or not the jury reached the correct conclusion in this trial. I'm fairly certain that there will be an appeal.
Juries are the cornerstone of the American legal system. The idea that a panel of citizens will objectively look at the evidence and judge the actions of another citizen is rooted in history and jurisprudence. I have great faith in the jury system, but I'm also experienced enough to know that sometimes they do some jacked-up stuff. I could tell you stories about juries, but this isn't the place.
I did a quick Google search, and couldn't find any information on what the streets in Minneapolis were like last night, but I don't trust the media to stray from their narrative.
