Where in our constitution are judges allowed to impose universal gag orders on those presumed innocent until a jury of their peers find them guilty after a trial in which they are accorded due process.
At this point, the beset citizens of Minneapolis are likely planning vacations in which they've scheduled a trip to piss on Floyd's grave marker.
It’s not going to matter. The narrative, like “hands up, don’t shoot”, has already been woven into society.
They should push to have the trial outside the city.
Well, the jury probably won't be as worried about what will happen if a "not guilty" verdict is reached. The riots have not stopped and will probably still be going on during the trial.
Well that murder two charge is going nowhere. They always overcharge these guys before the evidence becomes clear. Now when he gets off the blacks will be furious.
