The verdict in the Floyd trial is very important

but I can't say I'm interested in constant coverage.

1. If they let him go, all hell will break loose.

Itíll make last summer look like Woodstock.

2. and if that happens, I think we lose control of Congress in 2022.

I've been watching the trial pretty closely, but the past two days have not been the prosecution's best.

Perhaps its my normal pessimism, but that 'I ate too many drugs' clip the defense keeps playing could be problematic. I worry that given the number of jury members aged 50+ (five of them i believe) that they might have a less tolerant view on addicts and addition.

The rioting last summer I think was a significant factor in the Republicans rebounding and performing much better than they did in 2018 - especially down ballot where they consistently out performed the orange idiot.

3. And if they let him go, another killer cop will be found not guilty.

4. If they let him go there should be

massive outrage.

It will be a true miscarriage of justice.

It won't be surprising if he does though, I remember Eric Garner, whose murder we also saw on video. No one faced consequences for that one either.

10. Attacks on a message board I can handle.

Though Iíve yet to receive any. I think everyone knows exactly whatís going to happen if he gets away with this.

6. I haven't seen any coverage yet.

Read a few articles about the trial here at DU.

8. You have to be a really hard core junkie

to sit and watch this. Summary at the end of the trial is quite enough for me. Verdict is very important though.

7. He will serve time

Just a matter of how much excessive force is just a fact.
