About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

And thank goodness that part is over.

Defense presentation was brief, fortunately. But then again, I guess that’s how it goes when you don’t have much of a case.

To me anyway, he really didn’t have ANY case. This was indefensible. What Derek Chauvin did was indefensible. It was an assault. Prolonged slow-motion assault that was pretty doggone clearly meant to last til the victim was dead.

I think it was deliberate on Derek Chauvin’s part. Intentional, to send a message, to demonstrate not only to his immediate victim but EVERYBODY watching, whether they were part of the handful of bystanders, the TV audience, or his trainees on scene. He is behavior showed him to be determined to remain unphased - as George Floyd gasped and begged for mercy, or the handful of onlookers pleading on his behalf, or what his trainees might be worried about, what any other onlookers or those who’d see footage from the phone cameras or other cameras recording the scene. He appeared determined to outlast ‘em all.



I know! It truly and genuinely isn’t funny. But DAYUM...

Made me laugh out loud!

I'd have to agree, just being reminded by seeing those vids again.

Just reinforces the prosecution’s case, at least to me.

His use of the video clips certainly does. At least IMO.

I thought the videos were rather damning.

And every time you have to see them again, seems to me it just drills in how devastating what they show is.

I’m more horrified now than I was, even at the beginning of all this. It just becomes worse and worse, and more and more horrifying.

Domination is probably it.

We saw that with trump, too.

What all too often clearly seems to be a nearly-irrational yen to dominate.

Well, why not? Seems to work well enough when you substitute

“voting” for “guns”.

HAH! It took fucking damn trump to make YOU look better, dubya.

We actually found “Worse-than-YOU”, just eight years later.

Guns as penile extenders, I guess...
