Juror in Chauvin trial defends participation in Washington protest

One of the jurors who convicted Derek Chauvin has defended his participation in a protest last summer in Washington, DC. A photo, posted on social media, shows Brandon Mitchell attending the Aug 28 event to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr’s I Have a Dream’speech. Mitchell is seen wearing a T-shirt with the words, ’GET YOUR KNEE OFF OUR NECKS’ and ’BLM.’

Jury members seen attending political protests, elected representatives making threats that the jurors should make the "right" choice or face "confrontation," witnesses for the defense were intimidated with blood dumped on a former residence, the riots following Duante Wright, Chauvin being found guilty of both intentional and unintentional murder on the same person... this whole thing is a farce, the inmates are running the asylum.

The most corrupt, biased, criminal case in American history. Absolutely poisoned jury pool. Zero reflection on the law. Verdict by culture over justice.

Well, if Maxine Waters didn't do enough to guarantee an appeal, this guy certainly put the cherry on top.

MLK would be ashamed of black culture today. They really should stop using his name.

Sounds like a fair trial of his peers who had no ulterior motive at all. Just like the lady juror in the o.j. Simpson case who said 98% of the jurors didnt wanna covict him because of what the cops did to Rodney King. Some justice system.

whether Chauvin was guilty or not, this juror was tainted and biased. that is a recipe for appeal. what people need to realize is this. of you are biased and stay on a jury to convict a person. even though that person is guilty, you could cause them to be acquitted on appeal. and once found innocent, you can not be tried for the same crime again. so, if you are biased, reveal that so that a guilty person, once convicted, stays in prison.

Since the officer can't get a fair trial he can't be prosecuted , release him than turn around look at the democrats, blm, antifa and tell them it is their falt ( whitch it is ) then remove all the police from the city and watch it burn peacefully.

Sorry, but if you randomly choose 12 people for a jury right now, chances are a few of them will believe that black lives matter, and some of them probably went to a protest about it. There were somewhere between 15 and 26 million Americans openly protesting in the wake of Floyd's murder, making it the largest civil rights movement in the history of the country. Kinda impossible to get unbiased jurors for a case that every American has heard about.

So, basically, he thought that chauvin was guilty BEFORE the trial. This will make the appeal process much easier for Chauvin now

Lol isn’t this grounds for a mistrial? I believe anyone participating in BLM, Floyd or Blue lives matter protests were banned from being jurors

The defense could have removed him if they wanted to during the jury selection process. That's why it exists.

Everyone knows that Chavin did not get a fair trial. I’m not saying that he should not have been charged and convicted of some lessor offense though!

Why are there so many bootlickers in chat? Are you guys actually that ok with the state having the right to just attack you whenever? Aren't conservatives supposed to be about small government. How can you simultaneously defend police brutality and want less government power over your lives?

This is a travesty, and I'd fully support this guy being arrested and sentenced for contempt. While I absolutely think that the verdict was correct, this particular juror should have recused himself on the grounds of his protest attendance. By not doing so, he's risked the entire case being thrown out and declared a mistrial.

That juror is a liar and their participation in the trial should be nullified. Jurors should be impartial and certainly not threatened by Piece of 💩💩💩 SCUMBAGS like MaxiPad Waters, that continue to push violence in the streets using her ANTIFA and BLM (BURN. LOOT. MURDER.) TERRORIST gangs.

No one cares that he attended a protest...the issue is that he lied about it.
