    I see that we have a major disagreement -

    Let me ask you this - What would Jesus Do.

    how about - Father forgive them......

    BLM should be banned around the world.

    On a different note, how could Biden in public say that this LEO was guilty before the actual verdict? surely if the president makes such a statement, at the time he did so, that there should have been a mistrial?

    I find the US legal system rather strange. How can a person be guilty of both "murder" and "manslaughter"? The difference is clear in the Bible. It is either one or the other.

    Numbers 35:22-25
    But if without hostility someone suddenly shoves another or throws something at him unintentionally or, without seeing him, drops a stone on him that could kill him, and he dies, then since he was not his enemy and he did not intend to harm him, the assembly must judge between him and the avenger of blood according to these regulations. The assembly must protect the one accused of murder from the avenger of blood and send him back to the city of refuge to which he fled.

    Exodus 21:12-13
    Anyone who strikes a man and kills him shall surely be put to death. However, if he does not do it intentionally, but God lets it happen, he is to flee to a place I will designate

    Do you apply this to all criminals?

    As Christians we are to forgive those who sin against us. If Floyd was my relative I would forgive Chauvin. It would be hard but ultimately to forgive others is also healing for me.

    But it is also just that he be punished for his crime. The justice system is not a Christian and should properly do its job. When it does do this, it is appropriate to cheer given the history of injustice in the system.

    Sometimes it is just to waive or forgive the punishment like for minor or first time offenders. This is not one of those situations.

    Were you upset when the president gave his 2 cents on the verdict before it came in then?

    The presiding judge himself thought just might happen now on the appeal!
