Comments on Derek Chauvin’s Charges, Explained by Slade the Leveller in reply to Aaron David

I remember the day the Jason Van Dyke verdict was handed down in the Laquan McDonald trial here in Chicago. The whole city was on the edge of its seat. I've never felt that nervous about a criminal trial in my life.

If Chauvin is acquitted, I don't want to be anywhere in the United States for a few weeks.

I’d rather see a slam dunk case on this than see some prosecutorial grandstanding. I don’t know what the typical MN sentence is for 3rd degree murder, but a max of 25 years is a lot. (I know that won’t be the sentence.)
