    Default Protests flare as Americans await verdict in Chauvin trial

    Closing arguments are scheduled for Monday in the landmark case, and officials, business owners and residents across the city are afraid Minneapolis could see a repeat of the civil unrest that erupted after Floyd’s death last May.

    The killing of Wright, an unarmed Black man who was shot by a police officer during a traffic stop April 11, has not only increased anxiety over the potential for violent protests and looting, but it has also created confusion over who is in charge of efforts to keep the city safe. Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D), Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (D), the city police chief and the county sheriff all share in the role, but they appear to hold different views on how best to respond.

    The defense for Chauvin was very weak. Any juror wanting a not guilty verdict came in wanting it.

    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    who is in charge of efforts to keep the city safe? Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D), Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (D), the city police chief and the county sheriff all share in the role, but they appear to hold different views on how best to respond.

    You're a moron, ultimately the Governor is in charge. Trust me, there ain't no confusion there.

    Why are you trying to convince people there is confusion?
    Why Trump? Because Fuck You that's why.
