On Tuesday evening, a Minneapolis jury finally presented their verdict in the controversial trial of Derek Chauvin.
They found him GUILTY. On all three counts.
For months, Democrats predicted unrest if the former police officer was not convicted.
A guilty verdict should have made them happy! It was justice served, in their opinion.
Nancy Pelosi made a wild statement just hours after the news to thank Floyd for “sacrificing himself for justice.”
Vice President Kamala Harris said that Floyd’s name would “always be synonymous for justice.”
But the good feelings weren’t shared by all. Radicals were actually incredibly disappointed.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went as far as saying that despite the verdict she wanted, justice had NOT been served.
Organizers in Minneapolis and Portland instructed protesters to “riot anyway.”
Twitter was full of hot takes from those who hoped to fan the flames of an already out of control situation.
But perhaps the most insane reaction came from MSNBC’s Jason Johnson who claimed that the guilty verdict for Derek Chauvin actually NOT proof the system was working at all.
He ranted that “I actually always thought that he would be found guilty because it’s sort of a cultural make-up call, but I’m not happy. I’m not pleased.”
“I don’t have any sense of satisfaction. I don’t think this is the system working. I don’t think this is a good thing,” he continued.
Despite the best efforts to incite violence, liberals were met – for once – with mostly peaceful celebrations in Minneapolis.
