    Derek Chauvin Prison Sentence

    Derek Chauvin Prison Sentence

    June 25 is the scheduled sentencing hearing for Derek Chauvin, the police officer who was convicted in a Minnesota court of the murder of George Floyd. The prosecution is seeking a 30 year sentence, and the defense is seeking probation. In this video, a real lawyer explains why the overwhelming likelihood is that Chauvin will be sentenced to serve between 15 and 20 years in prison. This is the first of Habeas Humor's "Chauvin Chunks" miniseries.

    Please note: federal charges are also pending against Derek Chauvin for both the George Floyd killing and a prior incident of alleged police brutality. If convicted in federal court, Chauvin could face life in prison or even the death penalty.

    Part 2: Taking the Pink Pill (Path to the Alt Right)

    (Part 2 of 2) Right wingers Classically Abby, Rush Limbaugh, Dear Abby, Phyllis Schlafly, and many, many others have made careers out of fighting feminism. Additionally, they peddle their services as self-appointed judges of proper womanhood. Beware, as buying into such ideas, a.k.a. "taking the pink pill" leads not only to normalized misogyny but also to alt-right extremism.

    Pt. 2/HH61b: Did Betty & Ron Break the Law? (90 Day Fiance’s Brandon and Julia)

    (Part 2 of 2) Thanks for coming back! Previously we talked about immigration issues and the portrayal of immigrants on train wreck TV shows like 90 Day Fiancé. Let’s now get into the details of Brandon and Julia’s story and see if any laws are being abused…or any people for that matter!

    Pt. 1/HH61a: Train wreck TV & the Law (90 Day Fiance’s Brandon and Julia)

    (Part 1 of 2) This episode explores immigration issues with a focus on labor and the potential for exploitation and abuse. We will discuss real life situations portrayed on reality television, including the hit TLC series 90 Day Fiance, as well as My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding, and The Jerry Springer Show. Primary focus will be on the situation of Russian immigrant Julia, who lives with her fiance, Brandon, as well as his parents (Julia’s de facto employers), Betty and Ron.
    Note: the majority of the Brandon & Julia discussion will be in Part 2. Other 90 day fiance couples are discussed (Colt & Larissa, Rose & Big Ed, Syngin & Tania).
    Additional topics explored include gun control and church/state separation (e.g. Pulpit Freedom Sunday). 
    Content warning: contains discussion of suicide, gun violence, domestic violence, and terrorism.
