    Yet people give me side eye when I tell them that in general, the LGBT community and cops have never been at peace with each other.

      Anybody with the slightest familiarity with LGBTQ history understands exactly what you mean.

      The cops are authoritarians who prey on out groups. LGBTQ have always been othered. Ergo...

      • I've had the george floyd trial on between mtgs. The judge seems to be very good at keeping the witnesses between the guardrails. Glad they're broadcasting this.

        • Are people still watching the trial? I’ve only been following the news and headlines. From those, it looks like all of the senior MPD officers are have found the ink blot in the Thin Blue Line and it was Chauvin.

            I am only watching summaries. The ones I have been watching have been saying the Defense is as incompetent as... O. J.'s

            So take that FWIW.

            • His defense is fine from what I have read. He doesn't have much to work with so all he can do is go after credibility and "being a cop is hard". That won't play well but he has to try.

              Chauvin is gonna go down hard unless the jury is asleep.

                It sounds like the entire defense is going to depend upon the medical testimony as to whether the lack of oxygen to the brain was triggered by Chauvin's actions or the drugs in Floyd's system, and what can the defense get the jury to believe.

                I think a more interesting question will be answered later, when we see whether the cops that have testified against Chauvin are willing to also do so against the other three.
                That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                    • I mean the lawyer has to try. He can't just stand up and say "yeah...he did it lock him up!".

                      I honestly think as soon as Chauvin is convicted you will see the other three plead out...

                      • After watching Law & Order on repeat for what seems like ever, my question to the defense attorney would be "Let's say he had drugs in his system (or whatever nonsense he was saying caused his death), why didn't you help him to ensure he would go to trial and rot in jail?" Isn't that depraved indifference? Even if Floyd was guilty and a drug addict, Chauvin and his merry band of idiots did NOTHING to help him.

                          Who would call O.J.'s defense counsel incompetent? They did not have the facts to win that case, but they won anyway, never mind how.

                          Or were they referring to O.J.'s prosecutors?

                            The lawyers I know say the OJ trial is a spectacular example of a resistible force meeting a moveable object. He walked because there was only one Prosecution team that could be more incompetent than his Defense, but he fell into it.

                            I have no idea. I am just going by their mutually mocking opinions.

                            • I dont think I have ever met a lawyer who would say that. They might say his team were a bunch of jerks but they created reasonable doubt out of thin air. I mean most White People don't get a defense that works that well...

                              Methinks the lawyers you know are jealous ;^)

                                I'd be curious to know how many of them try cases regularly.

                                I'd also be curious to know what uno's wife thinks. Perhaps she doesn't care enough to voice an opinion. I certainly know lawyers who feel that way.
