It’s almost as if Dems like Joe Biden want to give Chauvin’s defense team ammunition. They do love themselves a good, old-fashioned riot, after all. A mistrial would likely result in one, as, of course, would the “wrong” verdict.

Some norms are just more equal than others.

But Joe Biden said it, so it’s fine.
