  3. The dumb ass kid who graduated at the bottom of his Law School class could win this case his first day on the job. The State Attorneys General stealing a case from the local District Attorney, an avowed COP HATING Muslim? Naw, there couldn’t be a political motive now could there? No way in hell this stupid cop is going to get a fair trial.

  4. MA, sorry. Someone already said it.

    However I have seen a comparison between the video and the mug shot and they look like two different people.

  5. The victim and his family are black. The defendant is white. The prosecution rests. I’m announcing my candidacy for Governor today.

  6. “they look like two different people.”

    Being caught on video murdering someone will do that to a face.

    It adds 20 pounds.

  8. I don’t think you can get a mistrial because the prosecutor is shown to be prejudiced. You can have a huge fuckup though if you try to overcharge which I bet they do. He’s currently charged with third degree murder or manslaughter and they likely will have a tough time making that stick when it’s shown his putting a knee to his neck for ten minutes was not the cause of death. Having said that I’ll bet Ellison tries to up the charge then makes a play to try the case in the papers. When it fails it will be Black Friday Shopping again.

  9. Ellison is auditioning to be Biden’s VP. It’s all about stoking the base for massive turnout.

  10. I just want to point out that Chuck Todd disagrees with Ellison being VP. He wants Val Demings to be the VP. He wants Ellison to be the nation’s Attorney General.

  11. He’s publicly announced his support for a domestic terrorist organization. He should be in Gitmo right now
