Taking the politics out of it, a man is being held accountable for taking the life of another.

Nothing surprising here. There was a lot of evidence pointing to this.

Unpopular question: How can you be guilty of both murder and manslaughter? My understanding is that murder is intentionally ended someone's life and that manslaughter is unintentionally ended someone's life. So how he can be both charged with intentionally and unintentionally ending someone's life?

A long way to go Americans! But a good step forward in racial progress! Still no room to settle down make sure every person who abuses their power is held accountable! Democrat or Republican!

People still think he died of drugs? He had 2ng/ml in his system. The lethal dose of fentanyl is generally stated to be 2 milligrams. (https://www.oxfordtreatment.com/substance-abuse/fentanyl/lethal-dose/). Even the medical examiner says the police are what caused his death, the drugs MAY have only played a factor. His death was unjust and avoidable.

Terrible crime being punished. Who could reasonably try to argue against this?

This should only be considered the first step to police reform. Now they need to make it illegal across the US to put a knee on someone’s neck, and from choking people in general. If they would have called the Secret Service for the fake $20 in the first place like they are supposed to do, Floyd would not have died that day. George Floyd was handcuffed as Chauvin put a knee on his neck. He stopped breathing after what 5-6 minutes, and Chauvin kept his knee on his neck for over 3 minutes more to make sure he was dead. He ignored paramedics. I just hope Maxine Waters stupid comments don’t jeopardize this verdict. Cops need better training, they need to hand off non-cop stuff to the proper authorities, and for good cops, they deserve better pay, and good cops need a way to call out bad cops without retribution. I am sure if these things were in effect, many more lives could be saved. Cops are not judge, jury, and executioners. Their job is to bring in people suspected of crimes to be tried, even if they get hurt in the process. If they cannot handle their tough job, they should find a new one that doesn’t put them around people who scare them.

Good. Chauvin seemed like a dirty cop and what he did to Floyd was excessive. Hopefully this calms things down and makes business harder for BLM.
