Derek Chauvin case: Was justice served by false systemic racism claims?

What has been lost in the coverage of the guilty verdict for former Milwaukee police officer Derek Chauvin is the fact that before he was elevated to sainthood in death, George Floyd was a career criminal imprisoned numerous times for a variety of major felonies and as his autopsy verifies, he was high on illegal drugs, though diagnosed with  chronic heart disease and positive for COVID-19. Police were initially called on the day of his death because he was engaged in the crime of trying to pass a counterfeit $20 bill in a store. At 6’4″ and weighing 223 lbs, Floyd was difficult to restrain as he resisted arrest. Officer Chauvin is 5’9″ and weighs 140 lbs. On Tuesday Derek Chauvin was found guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

Jurors were under intense pressure to render the verdict they did, fearful of riots, arson and looting, or what the left-wing media has come to minimize as “unrest.” They were also aware of the $27 million payment awarded to Floyd’s family by the Milwaukee City Council.

The deck was stacked. Judge Peter Cahill erred in not seeking a change of venue from the city where tensions ran high and not sequestering the jurors. Pres. Joe Biden publicly weighed in saying he was, “Praying for a guilty verdict.” VP Kamala Harris opined, “I think there needs to be a consequence and accountability for people who break the law. Period.” She obviously was not referring to Floyd. Both Biden and Harris hold law degrees and understand the impropriety of their statements, but the fact remains, such incendiary words resonate with their base. U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters another democrat, stated in advance of the verdict that “protesters need to “stay on the street” and “get more confrontational.”

To advance their political agenda, the left has race hustled, as prolific conservative columnist, author and professor, Dr. Thomas Sowell, then a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University wrote in 2016 in his column “War on Cops.” Now retired, his words still ring true as they relate to the race fraud that has been foisted upon the black community by those who benefit from what Sowell, who is black and rose from poverty to prominence, referred to as the “poisonous atmosphere” perpetrated by career race hustlers and racist institutions like the “Black Lives Matter” movement.

Akin to “white privilege,” “systemic racism” is a massive deceit crafted by democrats to advance their political power. They are now pushing legislation for reparations for slavery to be paid to people who never were slaves by others who never owned slaves. For the political left to remain relevant, they need members of their constituency to feel oppressed and victimized. Extolling the USA as the land of opportunity where people of all races can succeed doesn‘t fit their narrative asserting inescapable minority victimhood.

Derek Chauvin will no doubt spend the rest of his life in prison. Three other officers, one a rookie, who were at the arrest scene, have yet to be tried.

    The drama and the search justice and the truth regarding the death of Mr Floyd did not end yesterday. With threatening mobs and politicians, coupled with an apparently incompetent judge refusing to grant change of venue, Officer Chauvin’s journey is far from over.

      Are you implying this case could be retried? I sincerely hope so. but I think the chances are slim to none..

      • hoi polloi boy says:

        I think the conviction will be appealed on several issues: jury intimidation, lack of sequestration of said jury, denial of change of venue and the City Council settling a civil suit for millions of dollars with the Floyd family during jury selection.

        The whole thing stinks, as only lunatic democrat politicians (city council, Mad Max Waters, Joe Biden) can screw things up this bad.

        Officer Chauvin was railroaded, plain & simple.

      I agree with your assessment. The raging mobs were given unprecedented acknowledgement from the local dems in Milwaukee (whose council members unanimously gifted Floyd’s family with nearly $30 million), to those in positions of power in D.C. They are now emboldened and the rest of us are supposed to silently cower as they come to the defense of a career criminal high on drugs. If we don’t fall in line to these intimidaters, they threaten to take their destruction to suburban neighborhoods. The animals are now running the zoo. Those who voted for Biden must be proud of what they have wrought. The lawlessness given an official stamp and the multi-trillions in wanton spending will make the USA a border-less, third world country. The only good that came from the pandemic is not having to spend time with moronic relatives who voted for this travesty.

    As readers here know, I’m a frequent commenter on SRAZ. But my revulsion at the praise accorded to lifelong criminal George Floyd has disgusted me to the point I finally turned off the news. When the president and vice president slather praise on this addict and violent, armed, home invading criminal, it’s been more than I can tolerate. Those who commit crimes are the criminals, regardless of their skin color. In this case it was not Officer Chauvin.

    The leftwing Arizona Republic ran a war-declaring-size all caps, headline, ‘JUSTICE SERVED.’ Saw it on the counter when I stopped at Circle K to top off my tank this morning. Who knows when we might have to head outt’a Dodge. Keep extra water and canned goods with pull tops, such as tuna and soups. Make sure you have extra medications you need, first aid supplies, matches, flashlights, batteries and other necessities. Even if we are forced to hole up at home, be prepared and able to defend yourself and your family. These are unprecedented times and we have no dependable leadership.

    Read this and then make some strong decisions as to who you want to do business with in the future. I stopped going to a nearby and convenient Target store when their corporate execs decided that unisex restrooms were a good idea. I didn’t just stop spending there, I asked for the manager and told her what motivated my decision. Silence is no longer golden, it’s irresponsible.

    Then there’s THIS:

    …I dunnoooo…threatening a Police Officer? I’m not a lawyer but that reads (& SOUNDS…) like a Threat to me…

    “Minneapolis” – Milwaukee has its own issues, but the payout’s not as good. Watch for “Brooklyn Center” too!
