  1. Mrs. Coates; Mr. Ramsey; I want to thank both of you guys for bringing back the focus of WHO is actually on trial in the murder of George Floyd. they always put the Black Man on trial even when he is clearly the victim; even when he has been murdered. Thx

  2. You were colloquial and incoherent in attempting to discredit Dr. Fowler, a convincing defense pathologist. It was your commentary about this highly trained and credible witness, Dr. Fowler, that shows you have a paid agenda in your commentary. You are no longer objective and hence not credible as a commentator. You have your marching orders.

  3. Laura Coates is a wonderful replacement for Chris C. I hope she is here to stay. The concluding comments were so wonderful on tonight’s show. Profound words and good advice.
