Only a day after closing arguments in the case of Derek Chauvin, the jury rendered their verdict. Guilty on all three charges that were levied against Derek Chauvin. His sentencing hearing will be held about eight weeks from now. The Kapital News is an advocate for justice, peace, truth, and prosperity. If the jury made their decision based on the totality of the evidence, then their decision is to be respected. However, if their decision was rendered due to fear as to what may happen to themselves personally and/or to their city by mob actions should they have acquitted, then this would be a major problem. Of course, if the latter should be the case, we will likely never hear about it.
Nonetheless, The Kapital News is quite concerned with the growing trend of mob rule, media biases, and political grandstanding. True, these things are not new, but the 24/7 news cycle combined with the usage of social media, sets the stage for a lot of misinformation and disinformation. And none of this serves to promote and build a better Republic – quite the contrary. Our justice system is far from perfect and most definitely has many flaws. However, the pillars of our justice system are rooted in a trial by jury, due process, being innocent until proven guilty, right against self-incrimination, burden of proof lying with the State, and an appeals process. These are good things to have and are foundational to building a sound justice system. Yet if the media, politicians, and the general public are already rendering verdicts in the court of public opinion, and continuing to push their narrative despite the totality of evidence that is released throughout a trial, then this country is in a lot of trouble. We imagine many members of our audience would march peacefully to bring changes to the justice system to make it better. But if we should succumb to mob rule, then the foundation upon which our Republic was built, will experience further erosion. Stay diversified, stay vigilant, and stay with The Kapital News. #GeorgeFloyd #DerekChauvinTrial #Peace #NoJusticeNoPeace #Protests #Justice #Truth #USA #Liberty #Economy #FireCongress
