In this segment of "REVOLT BLACK NEWS," Eboni K. Williams moderates a discussion about Derek Chauvin's trial, its long and scrutinized juror selection, and how the family of George Floyd’s $27 million settlement from the City of Minneapolis in his wrongful death lawsuit may impact its outcome. Will justice be served after the fact?
Chauvin faces charges of second-degree murder, manslaughter, and murder; the latter which was reinstated by Hennepin County District Court Judge Peter Cahill after he admitted to making the mistake of dismissing it earlier.
This panel will include well-known activist Kimberly Latrice Jones, and attorney Christopher Stewart.

Your boy most likely died of an overdose, his trachea and lungs were fine so the knee didn't choke him to death. Of course, that doesn't matter because the country is full of illogical idiots.

Please hear me out , I am a white male and I hate that this tragedy has happened to this gentleman. Yes he had past issues (drugs, robbery ) But I have had my own issues just like everyone else. This so called police man who ended Georges life deserves execution . We do not need racist cowards who have so much hate in their heart in a position of some kind of authority. I am terminally sick with Liver failure and it's brought a lot of serious thinking and also it's made me see things in a whole new perspective. Can you imagine fighting a war for a country that won't even let you vote ? My whole point is I want to end racism. We are all Gods children Black,white green or purple. Please God be with Mr. Floyd's family during this horrible, relived tragedy. I promise to try and help and be there for whoever needs me to state what I think , if it's unfair or not.Please I am no Saint but I can be a messenger of truth and equality. God comes first and maybe I can make a small difference. I know this if this police man some how is found innocent this will set the white race back 200 yrs .I do believe justice will show its face in that court room !!!!! God bless everyone and please I ask you for a prayer for me and my wife . I would greatly appreciate it. Love yall with my heart.

The city should have never given a cent to criminals or there families! It's a joke, hopeing they don't burn down the city. Even though we know they will regardless. I look forward to the acquittal of the officers being used as scapegoats.

George Floyd was a dope head that resisted arrest. If he would have complied, he wouldn't have died.

The action of a knee to anyone's neck is wrong. That said, The Black civil leaders, BLM, Black preachers, and Black politicians must be FAIR. George Floyd invited the law for passing a forged $20 bill, he is high on illegal drugs, and +ve for COVID infection. These contribute to the whole scenario. Do not just focus on the knee to the neck.

So uh....this attorney says he’s settled several cases where white officers were convicted in criminal court. What’s the problem? Why are we burning cities down?

Because the ratio is like 1 to 100, there’s 100s of white officers got away with it

Justice would be slapping Floyds mom for not raising him better. Try to hide drugs from the cops by ingesting them. Win stupid prices. Knee on the neck surely didnt help but he was trained by minneapolis PD to do that apparently. Civil trial also =/= criminal. Just because they won 27 mil doesnt mean Chauvin is directly guilty. It just means the city fucked up by training the cops that way.

George Floyd was falling all over the place as the cops got him out of the car and led him to the police car. He had to sit down at first, and then as they led him towards the cop car you can clearly see him collapsing. He died from his horrible health, and overdose on fentanyl, and the fact that he freaked out because he was being arrested. Yes you can die from panic and fear if there are enough underlying conditions to push you over the edge. George Floyd couldn't breathe before he got into the cop car. When are you people going to evolve some intelligence? The rest of the world's races are patiently waiting for you to catch up.

RIP to George Floyd. His death truly was a tragedy and totally undeserved. And I definitely hope Chauvin gets what he deserves. But the resulting popularly sensationalized narratives are false. America isn’t racist. White people aren’t evil/inherently racist/bound to shame, and we don’t need to hate ourselves to prove it. If George Floyd was white, he would have been a minor daily news story, glossed over by most people and died nigh unknown and unmourned; just like Tony Timpa, Timothy Coffman etc.

Floyd was a career criminal and drug addict. I have no sympathy for what happened to him. He resisted officers at every turn.

@Bernie Getz the most concerning thing is that so many schools and universities have adopted the woke race theories and are teaching them to our young people, so if that doesn’t change, we will have millions of people growing up with convoluted poisonous race theories in their heads.

Think about this: George Floyd almost died from a fentanyl overdose a couple months earlier and he did the exact same things he did on the day he died. The medical professionals that saved his life that day warned him that "if you keep using fentanyl you will die" and yet he still used it... Dont believe me, go follow the pre-trial proceedings. It's one of the pieces of evidence that was approved by the court. You can follow the proceedings live or just find a recording because it's all open to the public. Stop falling for race hustlers and start being smart for a change

@Don Bags I don't know about the mysterious ways of God...who does? Chauvin is going to be held Accountable for that knee. Haven't you been watching his trial?

@c payne God gave us air, and he also gave us the college-bound angel that used to be George Floyd. He also gave Derek Chauvin a functional knee, which he used correctly in this case. HE be workin' in mysterious ways, don't he.

@Chill O Proving my point. The police KNEW Floyd had a history of drug use, yet they STILL exacerbated his chances of dying, when they prevented him from breathing the AIR GOD GAVE US!!!!

Think about this: Floyd was an alive drug user. His drug use was not on video for the whole world to see him die from/because he used drugs. The whole world saw him suffocate under the knee of chauvin. Reason this...... What drug could Floyd use or be under the influence of....that would've caused chauvin to let him breathe befor 8:46 seconds?
