Propagandized, Politicized, Intimidated Jury Finds Chauvin Guilty
When even the controlled media discuss, as WOR radio did on Monday morning, the fact the jurors in the Chauvin case feared for their own and their families’ safety should they return a “not guilty” verdict in the face of mob violence and an open call for even more violence from Black Congresswoman Maxine Waters, you know that there is no longer any justice for White people in this country — not even for a System-serving racemixer like Derek Chauvin.
Introduction by David Sims
HERE ARE two statements that I believe are both true:
1. A man who had taken the drugs that George Floyd took would have died, even if he had been entirely alone after he took them.
2. A man who had taken no drugs, but received the treatment by police that George Floyd received, would have survived with ease.
Chauvin is, therefore, not guilty.
But justice is not served in multiracial America. From wire service reports and National Vanguard correspondents:
Jurors convicted White former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on Tuesday of all the counts filed against him — second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter — in the death of George Floyd, a male Black who died — many believe as a result of the deadly cocktail of drugs he had ingested before passing the counterfeit money that got him arrested — after being pinned under Chauvin’s knee for resisting arrest.
The Sheriff’s Office said Chauvin was transferred to the Minnesota Department of Corrections. The agency said Chauvin was booked into the state prison at Oak Park Heights, at 4:55 p.m. CDT, 48 minutes after the verdicts were read. Chauvin was transferred to the same prison for safety reasons after his initial arrest in the case last year.
Judge Cahill thanked the jurors, who each confirmed their votes as correctly read. “I have to thank you on behalf of the people of the State of Minnesota not only for jury service, but heavy duty jury service,” he said.
If Cahill accepts the prosecution’s contention that aggravating factors should be applied at sentencing, the maximum term the 45-year-old Chauvin could receive would be 30 years, according to Ted Sampsell-Jones, a professor at the Mitchell Hamline School of Law and an appellate criminal defense attorney. The first 20 years would be served in prison and the balance on supervised release if he qualifies.
Darnella Frazier, who shot the cellphone video that prompted mass Black rioting and destruction and looting in numerous American cities, and which proved “pivotal to Chauvin’s conviction,” said on Facebook after the verdicts, “I just cried so hard. This last hour my heart was beating so fast, I was so anxious, anxiety [busting] through the roof. But to know GUILTY ON ALL 3 CHARGES!!! THANK YOU GOD THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. George Floyd we did it!!! Justice has been served.”
Co-prosecutor Jerry Blackwell spoke after Attorney General Keith Ellison’s statement, and said to reporters, “No verdict can bring George Perry Floyd back to us, but this verdict does give a message to his family that his life mattered, that all of our lives matter, and that’s important.”
Matthew Frank, another of the prosecutors, kept his comments brief and said, “First and foremost, this is for you, George Floyd, and for your family and friends.” A third member of the team, Steve Schleicher, said, “I want to thank the jury for their service, for doing what was right and decent and correct, speaking the truth, and finding the right verdict in this case.”
Chauvin’s attorney, Eric Nelson, earlier indicated that his client would appeal a guilty verdict on the basis that jurors may have been impermissibly swayed by outside forces. Nelson cited comments by Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., who urged protesters to become confrontational if the jury acquitted Chauvin.
Joe Biden, who has pledged to “overhaul the nation’s criminal justice system” after demands by Blacks, said during jury deliberations that he “prayed” that the jury would come to the “right verdict.”
A prepared statement from Benjamin Crump, the Floyd family attorney, read, “Painfully earned justice has arrived for George Floyd’s family and the community here in Minneapolis, but today’s verdict goes far beyond this city and has significant implications for the country and even the world. Justice for Black America is justice for all of America. This case is a turning point in American history for accountability of law enforcement and sends a clear message we hope is heard clearly in every city and every state. We thank Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and his team for their fierce dedication to justice for George. But it does not end here. We have not forgotten that the other three officers who played their own roles in the death of George Floyd must still be held accountable for their actions, as well.”
One of Floyd’s brothers, Philonise Floyd, was in the courtroom for the verdicts. He hugged Blackwell, Ellison and another prosecutor. Ellison and Blackwell heartily shook hands.
About an hour after the verdicts were read, Floyd family members were spotted in downtown Minneapolis speaking on the phone with President Joe Biden, who has been keeping close tabs on the proceedings. “We’re all so relieved,” Biden said, speaking for himself and Vice President Kamala Harris. (Contrast this with the disparaging, cold, near-silent treatment accorded January 6 homicide victim Ashli Babbit, a pro-Trump White woman murdered by a Black Capitol Police officer, who will not even be publicly named, much less prosecuted.)
Another brother, Terrence Floyd, said, “I will salute [George] every day of my life. I will salute him,” the brother said as he looked to the sky and made that gesture with his right hand, “because he showed me how to be strong. …What a day to be a Floyd, man.”
Brother Rodney Floyd thanked everyone for their constant support: “For George, this fight is not over. We’re going to stand here together, we’re going to try to get this George Floyd Act passed. It has to be passed.”
The Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis responded in a statement that “there are no winners in this case, and we respect the jury’s decision. We need the political pandering to stop and the race-baiting of elected officials to stop. In addition, we need to stop the divisive comments, and we all need to do better to create a Minneapolis we all love.” The statement added in a line geared toward residents of Minneapolis that the federation “stands with you and not against you.”
Ellison, during his statement, also addressed policing when he said, “The work of our generation is to put unaccountable law enforcement behind us. It’s time to transform the relationship between community and the people who are sworn to protect them from one that is mistrustful, suspicious, and in some cases terrifying, into one that is empathetic, compassionate and affirming. That will benefit everyone, including police officers who deserve to serve in a profession that is honored and [in] departments where they don’t have to worry about colleagues who don’t follow the rules.” Murdering dissident Whites is apparently no problem, however — nor is prosecuting obviously innocent dissident Whites like James Alex Fields, in prison for life for a crime that never happened, strictly because of his race and his political views.
Reaction from other leading officeholders was swift, among them (Jewish) Mayor Jacob Frey, who said in a statement, “Today the jury joined in a shared conviction that has animated Minneapolis for the last 11 months: they refused to look away. They believed their own eyes and affirmed George Floyd should still be here today.”
A statement from Gov. Tim Walz said, “Today’s verdict is an important step forward for justice in Minnesota. The trial is over, but our work has only begun.” The governor add that “no verdict can bring George back, and my heart is with his family as they continue to grieve his loss. Minnesota mourns with you, and we promise the pursuit of justice for George does not end today.”
Barack Obama and Michelle Obama released a statement saying the jury had done “the right thing.” “But if we’re being honest with ourselves, we know that true justice is about much more than a single verdict in a single trial,” the Obamas said. “True justice requires that we come to terms with the fact that black Americans are treated differently, every day. …While today’s verdict may have been a necessary step on the road to progress, it was far from a sufficient one. We will need to follow through with concrete reforms that will reduce and ultimately eliminate racial bias in our criminal justice system.”
The “foreperson” was Juror No. 19, a White man in his 30s who works as an auditor. He pledged during the jury selection process that he could examine the evidence “from a viewpoint of the law.”
He and his fellow jurors, whose identities have so far been kept undisclosed by the court, remained still and quiet and kept their eyes on the judge until called upon by the judge to affirm their verdicts individually. They departed the courtroom revealing no visible emotion.
The jurors were asked to decide between the prosecution’s claims that Chauvin used excessive force and an unsanctioned maneuver when he knelt on Floyd’s neck for about 9 1/2 minutes last May 25, and the defense’s argument that Chauvin was following his (Israeli-style) training when he arrested an unruly Floyd, who died of a cardiac arrest that stemmed from drug use and pre-existing heart disease and clogged arteries.
The cause of death became a key issue, with prosecutors telling jurors Floyd, 46, died of asphyxia from low oxygen when Chauvin knelt on his neck as former officers J. Alexander Kueng knelt on his buttock and thigh area and Thomas Lane knelt and held onto his legs. Former officer Tou Thao kept angry bystanders at bay.
The officers were arresting him for using a fake $20 bill to buy cigarettes at Cup Foods in south Minneapolis.
Hennepin County Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew Baker ruled that Floyd died of a homicide, an act caused by another person, and that the cause of death was “cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression.” He also listed hardening and thickening of the artery walls, heart disease and drug use as “other significant conditions.” Fentanyl and methamphetamine were found in Floyd’s system.
Attorney Nelson stated to the jury during trial: “I have to address the cause of death,” he said. “You have to be convinced that the defendant’s actions caused the death of Mr Floyd. And throughout the course of this trial, the state has tried – called numerous witnesses – to try to convince you that asphyxiation is the singular cause of death. They’re trying to convince you that Mr Floyd’s heart disease played no role in this case. The state must try to convince you that Mr Floyd’s history of hypertension played absolutely no role. That Mr Floyd’s toxicology played no role in his death. The state would have to convince you, beyond a reasonable doubt, that a combination of these pre-existing issues did not contribute to Mr Floyd’s death.”
The verdict came at a time of heightened tensions in the metro area following the April 11 fatal shooting of Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black male who was fatally shot during a traffic stop by then-Brooklyn Center police officer Kimberly Potter.
Then-Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon, who has since resigned, said Potter mistakenly fired her gun instead of a Taser while assisting in the arrest of Wright, who had been stopped for expired tabs and was found to have a warrant out for his arrest. Potter, who also resigned, was charged last week with second-degree manslaughter.
Wright’s death led to several nights of riots by Blacks.
The death of Floyd and the attendant Black riots (“mostly peaceful” protests, according to the media bosses) were used a springboard for massive increases in Black presence and anti-White psychological manipulation in advertising, news broadcasts, and entertainment produced by Jewish-run media outlets — and this has not only continued but accelerated in recent months, with no end in sight. Calls for massive wealth transfers to non-Whites, demonization of Whites, and criminalization of White self-defense have also accelerated.
Family attorney Crump, who helped negotiate a record $27 million settlement with the City of Minneapolis, is also representing Wright’s family.
J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao are scheduled to be tried Aug. 23 for aiding and abetting second-degree murder and manslaughter in Floyd’s death. All three, who were fired like Chauvin, are out on bond. Chauvin had also been out on bond during his trial.
Now we will endure more drama — this time related to Daunte Wright, the second male Black recently killed by police in Minneapolis. Wright was the same kind of stinking Congoid as George Floyd. Both Wright and Floyd were wanted in connection with aggravated assault.
George Floyd had robbed a woman after pointing a handgun at her pregnant belly and threatening to shoot.
Daunte Wright, also wielding a handgun, tried to rob a woman of $800 that her roommate had given her to pay the rent on their apartment. Later, both Wright and Floyd would have a fatal confrontation with police.
But think a minute. Why would two different male Blacks, famous for dying while the police were somewhere nearby, have such similar criminal histories? I’ll leave you to figure out that riddle. It isn’t especially difficult.
