RE -“See how Rav Hoffman feels about it at”
Yes, go to that article and read Millhouse’s comment there.
He makes the most sense!
Any decent Defense lawyer would demand that the Trial take place out of Minneapolis.
I think he requested a change of venue, but it was denied.

It was denied by Cahill, the main Judge.
It should have been Appealed!
From Minnesota News:
“There is a substantial possibility that any criminal trials of the four former Minneapolis police officers charged in connection with the death of George Floyd on Memorial Day evening will be moved out of Hennepin County. That potential was manifested in remarks by the current presiding judge in Hennepin County, Peter Cahill. At a preliminary hearing a couple of weeks ago, the former prosecutor told the lawyers and their clients that he may change venue because of unfavorable pretrial publicity generated by statements made by high-level officials, including Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and, more recently, Police Chief Medaria Arradondo, terming the incident a “murder” and proclaiming the guilt of the chief perpetrator, Derek Chauvin.
But the potential for tainting the jury pool is not a one-way street. Comments about the evidence in the case made publicly by two of the defense attorneys earlier this week prompted Judge Cahill Thursday to issue a rarity: a gag order barring further extra-judicial remarks by counsel on both sides of the case, coupled with a repeated threat of moving the case elsewhere to facilitate selection of an unbiased jury. Etc.”
He didn’t stand a chance in Minneapolis!
They are/were concerned with Rioting, more than any Justice for the Cops.
