Decoding the Queen's colorful style
As Britain's longest-reigning monarch, the Queen is both a cherished and consistent part of public life -- her image synonymous with stability and tradition to the British people.
Mr. George Floyd’s (Murder) Just keep in mind everybody… This is Joe Biden‘s America. If they do not convict and punish with the death penalty this is a complete failure of the Democrat party. We all saw the video and can make up our own minds as humans..yah the drugs did it. Not 70 kg of hard knee on neck for 9 minutes on curved concrete+ hands and fingers being bent by two more officers while they have knees on back+ Floyd is handcuffed..B.S defense Guilty guilty!
So the murderer is found guilty by jury is too chicken to let jury sentence him so waived and Judge will sentence?. This is strange. Why do I think the man in this photo does not look anything like the man in the damning video? Is he the same man who hid his woody by keeping his hand in his pocket? Vagal massage can kill.

We already know. Hold on America... He should be found innocent Judge was great throughout trial but at the end spook fast and loose and unconsciously revealed his bias which seemed pro law and order. Don’t have a good feeling. He like defense atty better than other side. Not confident chauvin won’t escape. Scared
Chauvin must walk. Eric Nelson did a fine job during the closing arguments.
