OHT has a point here.

Politicians, entertainers, influencers making blanket statements about a defendant's guilt flies in the face of "innocent until proven guilty." While they certainly have the right to do that, it could also have a huge impact on the trial and subsequent appeals.

This defendant is the ultimate villain right now. People hate him more than Hitler.  Where does a guy like that get a fair trial by unbiased jurors?

Hopefully it doesn't come to that and the guy takes a plea agreement or just offs himself.  Right now he's only charged with manslaughter and while I know nothing about Minnesota law, you know damn well that his attorneys are seriously thinking of just having him plead guilty ASAP.  People are demanding murder 1, and you know the Feds are going after him too.  I suspect the potential Federal charges will mean much, much more prison time than manslaughter.
