Imagine tainting a jury.

This case is primed for a mistrial. While this clown’s opinion is as valid as anyone elses’s, I think any objective observer can see the conflict here. Retrial eminent

Our judicial system would definitely move a lot faster if we just always selected jurors who already know their verdict decision before the trial starts.

I would be curious if he lied on any of the questions asked during jury selection because that seems like an obvious question that the defense would ask.

So basically he lied on his questionnaire. Good to know. Anyhoo, Chauvin's lawyer has already filed a motion for a new trial.

Tainted media = tainted jury = tainted verdict.

If you know you're not going to get a fair trial then you might as well fight to the death.

There is a stunning amount of Chauvin-haters in the comments defending the same juror bias and witness tampering that got black men lynched in the south. I thought you guys hated white supremes, so why adopt their tactics and become just as bad if not worse? Oh, right. My logic and consistency is my "white privilege" which makes me "an unfeeling hateful nazi racist who defends racist cops". Makes about as much sense as the ATF's firearm classifications.

If this isn't a mistrial, it is certainly going to be reversed on appeal. All three counts.

Did he disclose the information before jury selection? Bias is a disqualifier. Doesn't matter what sort of bias.

So you could say that his decision was probably made up before walking into the jury box...
