    I'm sure if he was acquitted, there would have been riots and lives lost, just like in the 90's with the Rodney King trial. It wouldn't have been a civil war, and it wouldn't have been a world-wide race riot.

    Would there have been riots? Almost certainly
    Do riots equal civil war? Not remotely.

    That really smells of a thinly veiled praise the white jurors from preventing a civil war.

    If it's true solitary is quite a bit worse then gen pop, so i'm good with that. If it's just confined with the pedo's and other's then blah.

    Probably repeating most of their behavior from last summer. You know, almost killing senior citizens, assaulting children, assaulting journalists, kettling protesters so they can tear gas and pepper ball the fuck outta them for funsies.

    You know, standard cop stuff.

    I never sit in relief for long at small progress, just can't.
    I hear what you are saying, and mostly agree.

    But take some time and just celebrate. Clear cut victories are few and far between, and a lot of people worked hard to bring about this kind of change. Honor the sacrifices and hard work that helped to bring about this result.

    So just be happy for at least a day or two SOMETHING GOOD HAPPENED.

    And he really was convicted on ALL THREE CHARGES

    A bit off topic, but very much in line with your post: I listened to some of the defense arguments. The defense lawyer made it hard to NOT hate this guy with a passion, and to not hate white supremacists over all. HE MIGHT HAVE DIED FROM CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING INSTEAD. I will identify this line with white supremacists for a long time, and it is a reminder that, as you alluded to in your post, that the war is not over, a lot of fighting remains, and that white supremacists are even more dishonest and evil than I thought.

    Crowder is already rambling on twitter about cops leaving the force.

    Populists (and "national socialists") look at the supposedly secret deals that run the world "behind the scenes". Child's play. Except that childishness is sinister in adults.

    He won't be in Gen. Pop. And, even if he was, the Aryans wouldn't be able to protect him even if they wanted to.

    Cops don't have friends in prison....regardless of their skin colour.

    No, I am not kidding. The "civil war" bullshit has become tiring, not to mention word war one. Common.

    It actually makes me feel worse. The fact that this is such a huge monumental deal because usually these people get off makes the situation to me even more hopeless because it is so fucking bogus it is not a norm.

    And given the video and everything, there was no way in hell any defence could have been made that wouldn't make Chauvin seem like the exact piece of shit he is.

    I think this Malcolm X quote on progress kind of sums up how I feel to an extent.

    At first I was confused, distraught and hopeless. But then I thought about two things:

    1.) cops will likely get revenge for wrongful termination and prosecution (one way or another)

    2.) since this is a short-term victory, maybe they’ll pack the bags they’ve stolen and go back to the houses they’re squatting in.

    With any luck, vigilante justice will prevail, but in this neutered country, I’m not holding my breath (like their martyr did).

    As happy as I am, it doesn't mean shit without reform or even sentencing.

    Police were just kicking the asses of protesters last night. There's going to be police and 2A types looking to cause trouble. This is just a time out.
