Just popping in to say when politicians threaten the jury and weigh in on a verdict prior to the verdict being handed down, was not a very good day for justice, because at the very least it opens the door for the verdict being over turned.
As long as any judge or juror involved in this case has the gift of vision it will never be overturned.

Not surprising in the slightest that you have this take, unfortunately.

VISION? Justice is blind, or at least it supposed to be. Listen, the dude was/is bad. If an appeals court doesn't overturn the verdict, he needs to be stood up in front of a firing squad immediately and taken care of. I'll be the first to volunteer for the squad.

The ‘justice is blind’ quote and the oft portrayal of Lady Justice with a blindfold does not suggest that evidence is not examined/ looked at; it symbolises impartiality, the ideal that justice should be applied without regard to wealth, power, or other status. Indeed, the scales represent the weighing of evidence. The scales lack a foundation in order to signify that evidence should stand on its own.
It is a pity that politicians did not hold their silence during the trial and that the civil settlement was made public, but the ability of this jury to ignore and not be influenced by outside ‘noise’ must surely have been considered during voir dire.
The Old Bailey ‘Lady Justice’ does not wear a blindfold because she is an innocent maiden, not yet corrupted by the world.

I felt sick to my stomach waiting for the verdict. It's really sad that we all questioned that the right outcome would happen. The worst part is that celebrating or the small victory was cut short as another person of color lost their life at the hands of police. The only thing that makes me hopeful that they'll maybe think twice before reaching for their gun is that one of them was finally held accountable, that they're not above the law and that better training will start happening. I'm not that naïve to think it's going to happen over night or that this verdict changes everything, but it's something.
