The Matt McNeil Show – April 19, 2021

Hour 1 segment 1: Matt says get outside into nature! Closing arguments from the Derek Chauvin case. How the defense is trying to give jurors any sort of excuse to acquit Chauvin.

Hour 1 segment 2: Thoughts on how the prosecution did proving the charges against Derek Chauvin and countering some of the defenses arguments.

Hour 1 segments 3/4: Matt takes apart the defense’s very cynical closing arguments strategy of trying to blame everyone except Chauvin for Chauvin’s actions.

Hour 2 segment 1: Your calls on the Chauvin trial including whether Chauvin lied on the original police report and how the defense is pushing for a mistrial. Then switching gears Mike Lindell is back in the news with two stories.

Hour 2 segment 2: Why the narrative of the defense in the Chauvin case portraying themselves as David against Goliath (the government) is completely wrong. The defense is actually very well funded with some big legal names helping them out.

Hour 2 segment 3: The city of Champlin continues to spend taxpayer money securing the home of Kim Potter, who killed Daunte Wright last week in a traffic stop. How will that precedent work in the future? Will Champlin pay for security of anyone in the city charged with a homicide crime? State Senator David Osmek authors a draconian anti-protestor that doesn’t mention anything about the January 6 insurrection attempt.

Hour 2 segment 4: The MN COVID-19 update.
