What Mobs Do

Trial By Mob: Chauvin Jury Punts So They Can Leave

I still wonder about the convictions.
Three slightly different kinds of murder convictions, one death, one body.

When it came to rendering a verdict, the jury went to deliberate, and instead of choosing A, B, or C, they checked all the boxes, and waited until they might not be ridiculed for not waiting a dignified amount of time before getting out of Dodge.
I'll bet the jury instructions were to choose one of the four options. That alone should overturn the verdict, unless there's a court rule that when this happens it is the least onerous choice of those selected that is used to form the punishment.
