  1. These two were the A-Team 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽that helped lock up a Dirty Murdering Cop 😡

  2. They did such a great job. Total intelligence on their part through the trial.

  3. Thanks, so much because Derek Chauvin was convicted and should be sentenced to as long as is possible for what he did.
    Murdered a black man in broad day light. Because he thought that he wouldn't be held accountable.

  4. Chauvin was found guilty and the killing cops are still killing. Then they refuse to release the evidence of their murders. While blaming their murdered victims. Justice what a crock of "BS".

  5. Can’t do anything but RESPECT these men!!! Frank too! God bless you two! We need u!

  6. His mother told him he should be a lawyer ,no problem.everyone says i should be a lawyer or a politician. But deep down i cant be good that long.i wanted to be free of being the good guy or bad guy,but i still take on the battles and with my gods help,i always win the battle after me.I never had a problem with my own life, just humanitarian issues,bulling issues on a large scale,i never had to talk much,just let people know that i dont like this particular action ,then it just goes away.These two men are the type of people i pray for.

  7. WE CAN PROVE IN COURT. FLOYD DIED MAY 25TH. FOR CAPITAL GAINS.
    OFFICER CREDIT CARDS. SAN DIEGO. CALIFORNIA. MINNESOTA LAND BANK.

  8. WE KNOW IT WAS A POLICE GANGS. WHO PLANNED FLOYD'S MURDER. VINCENT MILLER.

  9. MY WIFE'S FAMILY MEMBERS. VINCENT MILLER. San Diego. FILM RIGHTS. TO FLOYD'S.
    MURDER. RODEO CLUBHOUSE. 2019.ADDITIONALLY PLENTIFUL EVIDENCE. FLOYD DIED MAY 25TH.
    ETIWANDA AVENUE. STATE RELIGION. 6 8 ACRES OF LAND. WASTED THE COURT'S TIME.
    FRAUDULENT CLAIMS. VINCENT MILLER.

  10. I guess I should take back all the negative things I've said about lawyers in the past. These two men are good humans who upheld the rule of law. Bravo.

  11. Chauvin trial isn't quite over yet. Sentencing gonna have you guys rioting amh

  12. Has perceived reality become intertwined with perceived or actual threats of violence ! NOBLE PROFESSION – I don’t think so ! Publicity for Firms is priceless in future ! 🤮

  13. A good actor becomes a favorite of the crowd for telling a good story, a musician for a good song, a sport star for a good game. A prosecutor becomes a hero for making justice… once in a while.

  14. Is this a kiddy show no one in there right mind would say a lawyer is not a lier
    By Profession ! You are what you eat , Man-eater

  15. Thank you both for your superb Proscecution of that sadistic officer. Your respect and justice for George Floyd has touched hearts world-wide. We've been following it all from Donegal Ireland.

  16. Extremism in the police and military ranks maybe why US troops are still stationed in Germany?

    Are they writing travel logs? Learning to be Nazis? Elvis was stationed there 60 years ago.

    How much has the US spent on the 76 years extremist training holiday since GI Blues?

    Let's hope the George Floyd Justice and Policing Act is followed through.
