Default Derek Chauvin trial

I believe the trial for the death of George Floyd begins on the 8th of this month. That's in 4 days time according to my maths.

...I wonder who will be allowed in court in terms of media coverage of the trial...it has been reported that only one member of George Floyd’s family is allowed to be present ...

[Three other dismissed officers will stand trial
together later this year
but proceedings in Chauvin's trial will start Monday,
when jury selection begins.]

[A third-degree murder charge has been brought
against the former police officer charged
in George Floyd's death - a move that could
increase the odds of a murder conviction in
what will be one of the highest-profile
police trials in the US.
Prosecutors had requested third-degree murder
be added to former Minneapolis officer
Derek Chauvin's charges,
which already included second-degree
murder and manslaughter.

A judge has now granted the request,
despite attempts from Chauvin's lawyers to block it.

2 black youths aged 14 and 16 broke into a 53yr old disabled / also mentally disabled white mans appartment in Rochester NY , poured petrol all over him and lit him up ! not one word n USA news ~ sorry but if that was reversed all hell would be let loose , riots , marches. protests etc .... this man who dies 4 days later from 70% burns seems not to matter at all.

That has nothing to do with any of this?

Okay, but what does that awful murder have to do with the trial of the police officers who murdered George Floyd?

This doesn't have anything to do with a man passing away in police custody, but feel free to start a thread on it!

Also I've not heard of riots being ignited by civilian-on-civilian crimes.
