A juror in the Derek Chauvin trial hid that he was a Black Lives Matter activist to convince the judge that he was “impartial.”
Juror #52, now identified as Brandon Mitchell, is also encouraging people to try to get on juries to “spark some change.”
During jury selection, Mitchell claimed that he had very little knowledge of the case. However, Mitchell was photographed last August wearing a shirt that read “Get your knee off our necks” and “BLM.”
In an interview with Get Up! Mornings with Erica Campbell on April 27, the juror asserted that people need to get on juries to “spark some change,” the Post Millennial reports.
“I mean it’s important if we wanna see some change, we wanna see some things going different, we gotta into these avenues, get into these rooms to try to spark some change,” he said. “Jury duty is one of those things. Jury duty. Voting. All of those things we gotta do.”
Minneapolis’ FOX 9 reporter Paul Blume reported in March that “Judge Cahill asked Juror #52, whether he heard anything about the #GeorgeFloyd civil case. He says, no. He explained hearing some basic info about trial dates, etc from the news in recent months, but nothing that would keep him from serving as impartial juror. #ChauvinTrial”
“Juror #52 wrote in his jury questionnaire that he wondered why other police officers at the scene did not intervene in #GeorgeFloyd deadly arrest. He recognizes the historic nature of the case. Defense says he is an acceptable juror. So state’s turn to question,” Blume added.
I would think juror Brandon Mitchells background will make a strong case for a retrial.
You’re assuming any appellate judge would be stupid enough to rule in Chauvin’s favor. I figure, one and all, they read Mad Maxine’s “memo” loud and clear. Who wants to look out their front window and see a crowd of people standing on their front lawn holding molotov cocktails?! LIT molotov cocktails!!!
Who want’s to look out the window and see Maxine’s face? You’d think a buzzard had shit on your window.
I know it no longer matters (except for Republicans), but isn’t this an example of perjury? Of course, it won’t be prosecuted; it seems to be an accepted fact that leftists simply HAVE to lie, just as they require breathing to survive.
Bad defense lawyer. Why no challenge?
Because the juror lied.
And because he got Mad Maxine’s “memo”.
I hope this leads to a new trial and a change of venue. Even without this liar, it would have been difficult to get a fair trial in Minneapolis.
Thanks to the permeation of racist left wing propaganda, I doubt Chauvin, or anyone else the left decides to attack, could get a fair trial anywhere in the country.
If this trial isn’t appealed, then our Republic is truly gone, because the rule of Law is gone.
This is not how our Law works.
It’s how it works under Democrats. Politics overrides blind justice. Just ask Schiff.
