Chauvin trial update:


second-degree unintentional murder "without intent to effect the death of any person while committing or attempting to commit a felony offense other than criminal sexual conduct in the first or second degree with for or violence or a drive-by shooting." UP TO 40 YEARS

third-degree murder (HAS BEEN REINSTATED) without intent to effect the death of any person, causes the death of another by perpetrating an act eminently dangerous to others and evidencing a depraved mind, without regard for human life."

“On July 15, 2017, Justine Damond (née Ruszczyk)[2] a 40-year-old Australian-American woman,[3] was fatally shot by black 33-year-old Minneapolis Police Department officer Mohamed Noor after she had called 9-1-1 to report the possible assault of a woman in an alley behind her house. Occurring weeks after a high-profile manslaughter trial acquittal in the 2016 police shooting of Philando Castile, also in the Twin Cities metro area, the shooting exacerbated existing tensions and attracted national and international press.[4]

On March 20, 2018, Noor was charged with second-degree manslaughter and third-degree murder. Noor claimed self defense. Prosecutors later upgraded the charges against Noor to second-degree intentional murder. In April 2019, Noor, a Somali American, was convicted of third-degree murder and manslaughter, but acquitted of intentional second-degree murder.[5] In June 2019, Noor was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison.[6] Damond's family brought a civil lawsuit against the City of Minneapolis alleging violation of Damond's civil rights, which the city settled for US$20 million,[7] one of the largest-ever settlements in a suit involving a police killing.[6]”

Damond came up to the car and the officers startled, Noor shooting her because he heard a loud noise

Usually for cases when the victim is not known by the perpetrator but the act put “others” in danger of death or serious bodily injury.


second-degree manslaughter death caused by “culpable negligence whereby the person creates an unreasonable risk and consciously takes chances of causing death or great bodily harm to another." This is the most provable No breathing, no pulse, still does nothing. THAT is going to be hard to beat for the defense. MAX 10 YEARS

Store clerk feels Guilty? Should he? We’ll talk about that on the member side of the show!

Christopher Martin: “Martin said he immediately believed the $20 that Floyd gave him in exchange for a pack of cigarettes was fake but accepted it, even though store policy was that the amount would be taken out of his paycheck if found to be counterfeit.

Martin said he initially planned to just put the bill on his "tab" but then second-guessed himself and told a manager, who sent Martin outside to ask Floyd to return to the store.

He said a manager asked another employee to call the police after Floyd and a passenger in Floyd's vehicle twice refused to go back into the store to resolve the issue.”

this is logical error but the way our society thinks today

We are responsible for our actions and no one other than our own

George Floyd is responsible for putting fentanyl and meth, for passing the bill, and for forcing himself into the ground outside the cruiser

Chai in is responsible for not reading the situation and changing course once Floyd stopped talking

This store own is not responsible and should not feel guilty about anything
