Agree with all 3,  I wasn't 100% sure about the 2nd degree murder for Chauvin but I tilted towards it.

agree with Rittenhouse & Arbery verdicts, don't have a firm opinion on Chauvin verdict.

I opposed the Chauvin verdict at the time but in hindsight, I think it was fair. I agree with the Rittenhouse and Arbery case verdicts.

I think that Arbery was probably up to no good but his killers were racists so they deserve the full charge of murder. His killers overreacted and killed him probably because of his race. If they were not personally racist, the case wouldn't be as black and white IMO. George Floyd was a bad person but Chauvin definitely used too much force and acted completely wrongly.

I am concerned about how if people are killed unjustly they immediately become heroes, or idols, at least among many people.

Agree with all three. Will completely admit I fell victim to disinfo about the Rittenhouse case last year.

Chauvin and Arbery killers cases were very clear. Sure, George Floyd may not have been a model citizen, but he wasn't hurting anyone at the time and by all accounts was trying to improve and even if he wasn't he still wasn't hurting anyone. I don't have any evidence Arbery was doing anything other than jogging, and either way, shooting him to death was the wrong thing to do to say the least.

Rittenhouse was less clear. I will also admit to having believed much of the disinformation last year, but I don't think his behavior can be condoned. If I were a juror, I would have voted not guilty because I believe in the presumption of innocence, but I bet there are a lot of people, especially people of color, who have been locked up with there being less evidence than with Rittenhouse, most of them with plea bargains. But that doesn't mean we should stop the presumption of innocence for someone else, and while Rittenhouse may be guilty of something in a court of morals, he was tried in a court of law.

People fixate on race in the "black Rittenhouse" hypothetical but a black guy with a $2 mil legal defense fund and the best counsel you can buy probably also walks; OJ did. The real injustice is that most kids (esp. most black kids) in a similar self-defense situation don't have $ and end up w/ an overworked PD who gets them to plead guilty.

Yes, sadly the justice system is to administer justice with respect to persons, and to do unequal right to the poor and to the rich.

The "black Rittenhouse" is more likely to be shot before he goes to court. Rittenhouse, and this hypothetical person, relied on crowdfunding; OJ already had the trappings of wealth, fame and privilege.

Rittenhouse is unambiguously an evil person with evil intentions who will hopefully never experience so much as a fleeting moment of happiness ever again, but at the end of the day, reasonable doubt is a serious thing and you can't convict in a case where the prosecutor made no effort to meet their burden
