To be clear:

1. You posted nonsense about "ZOMG! What about innocent until proven guilty!?!?!" as if MSNBC is the jury in this case. To be perfectly explicit, Derek Chauvin has a right to a trial before an impartial jury that has not prejudged him. The rest of us, including me, including you, including everyone here on DVDTalk, including MSNBC, has a right to opine on whether Chauvin is innocent or guilty based on the evidence of which we are aware.

2. You nonetheless decided to play White Knight to Chauvin, so I figured perhaps you had seen some evidence pointing to Chauvin's innocence with which the rest of us are not familiar. So I asked you about it.

3. Rather than engage in the substance of Chauvin's innocence or guilt, you hemmed and hawed. When you were called out on it, you went out and found a blog from a right-wing pundit's blog where he had a criminal defense lawyer guest blogging. You literally said "I found this link," as if to reinforce that you are incapable of articulating why you think Chauvin should go free. That's the moment I knew for sure that my suspicions are correct -- you are not going to engage on the substance of your assertions, just Gish Gallop your way through this thread until, God willing, the mods shut your bullshit down.

4. I don't need a blog to spoon feed me some lawyer's take on "ZOMG! Prosecution destroyed!" News of this trial is very easy to find if you actually care. So you can kindly forget your "you didn't even have time to watch my videos!!!!" crocodile tears because I don't care.

5. Now you've gone out and done research on how this blog from a right-wing operative is actually really factually accurate. Maybe it generally is; I don't know. I do know I don't need his hand-picked defense lawyer to spoon feed me his hot takes on the trial. It's spin. I could find any number of pundits who can say the prosecutors are doing a great job. In fact, this whole shit-show of a discussion started when you posted a tweet complaining that MSNBC legal commentators are saying he's guilty. And you still can't bother to give any analysis of your own on why you think that is wrong.

When you first posted, I was more than willing to have a discussion with you about Chauvin's use of force, the repeated testimony about how inappropriate it was and contrary to police training, how I don't think the issue of Floyd's drug use will protect Chauvin from legal liability, and so on. I'm actually moderately educated on what's going on in this trial because I read about it. But now -- forget it. I haven't eaten enough drugs (that's an inside joke -- do you get it?) to think anything productive could come of interacting with you. Keep posting your shitty memes and being a generally unpleasant presence on this forum. I'm done with this conversation.
Feel better now?

I’ll never understand how a piece of shit like Ted Cruz can even look himself in the mirror without vomiting.

5 minutes from DC to Chicago. Must be on one of the Biden high speed rails.

But yeah, the Cancun replies will go on forever for Cruz. I swear half of the posts under any Megan Kelly tweet are about blackface, the trolls never forget.

Well when you are a world-class hypocrite, it tends to follow you around when you go on social media to chastise others.

Yes, that Cruz abandoning his constituents thing was just soooooooo long ago. Why can't we just let it go? He's a different person now!

^ Probably because the mainstream media is too busy keeping up with the next shooting. The Phillip Adams story is already yesterdayís news. Thereís a mass shooting in Texas thatís getting all the coverage now.
