Derek Chauvin was found guilty of all charges, cuffed in court, and led to prison as crowds cheered outside.

The defense and the judge signaled yesterday that an appeal would be likely due to the weighing-in by Congresswoman Maxine Waters on the weekend. The jury was not sequestered during the trial.

President Joe Biden also gave his opinion today saying that he thought the evidence was “overwhelming” and his hope that the jury would come to “the right decision”.

After 15 days of testimony going through every facet of George Floyd’s death through the eyes of 45 witnesses and hundreds of pieces of evidence, the jury of seven men and five women — six white, four black, and two bi-racial determined that Derek Chauvin was guilty on all counts.

The jury returned its verdict on Tuesday afternoon after just 10 and a half hours of deliberation.

As the verdict was read out Chauvin looked on silently in the Hennepin County courtroom where jurors spent three weeks listening to testimony about the day Floyd died under the weight of the 45-year-old cop’s knee during an arrest on May 25, 2020.

Judge Peter Cahill thanked the jury on behalf of the state of Minnesota for not only jury service but ‘heavy duty jury service.’ The state moved immediately to have Chauvin’s bail revoked pending sentencing which will happen in eight weeks. Judge Cahill did so and Chauvin was remanded into custody taken from the courtroom in handcuffs.

Floyd’s younger brother, Philonise, 39, who took a knee at the courthouse steps at the start of the trial, was in court to hear the verdict read.

Cheers rose from the crowds that had gathered outside the courthouse and down at the intersection of 38th and Chicago now known as George Floyd Square. Cup Foods, the store in which Floyd was last seen alive, shuttered its doors ahead of the decision.

The jury sent their notice that a verdict had been reached at 2.30pm local time as Minneapolis and the country braced for potential violence stemming from the decision. Jurors had not sent back any questions to the judge or asked to review any of the hours of video or hundreds of exhibits entered in the course of the trial.

Watch as Judge Peter Cahill reads the verdict:

Here was the reaction outside of the Hennepin County courthouse.

Activists watching as the verdict is read:

Activists have been shouting in the streets for a year “No Justice, No Peace!”

Now we’ll see if this guilty on all counts verdict means that they will accept the justice delivered and there will be peace.

The Corporate Media doesn’t want peace, though. It’s bad for ratings.

If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
