There was blatent provocation by some and blatent fearmonging by others regarding post verdict conflict. We should acknowledge that America handled an historic and emotionally charged moment with a stunning calm, dignity, and perspective that should be applauded. #chauvinverdict
I also encourage anyone with any doubts to challenge yourself to watch the video of Chauvin kneeling on George Floyd’s neck- watch the entire 9.5 minutes. This isn’t about politics. This was about a stunning callousness and lack of respect for humanity that deserved rebuke.
The video is so disturbing (if you can make it through the entirety) that anyone who watches it -regardless of your politics or skin color or feelings about police- knows it was wrong, and is left asking how did our system let this happen. IMO that unity of disgust unites us.

"When we see how we felt today as we waited for it, it's a window into how often the justice system has failed us...So we have a deep systemic problem, and this verdict was important, especially for the family, but we have lots of work to do." #ChauvinVerdict
"He's looking at us like that because he doesn't think anything will happen to him." --@Sifill_LDF

We've heard the narrative time and time again of the Black victim with "superhuman strength" who frightened the white officer. It didn't work this time.

You think the appeal judges will have the guts to throw out the #ChauvinVerdict if they think it needs to be thrown out? Probably only some verdicts; not all 3.
The concept of the 3 charges is that if one fails then he is possibly guilty on another due to different reaons. Yet the Jurors (who likely recently watched TV and scrolled Social Media) went with guilty on all 3 to get over with it. 1 guilty verdict would make (more) sense.
You can be of the opinion that #ChauvinIsGuilty while also thinking that the Jurors decided based on public pressure which would make it Mob Rule; not justice. This would be true even if they found him guilty on one charge; sure so when it’s on all (contradictory) 3.
