Chauvin juror lied during jury selection about attending protests
LINK

quote:

A juror in the Derek Chauvin murder trial is defending his attendance at the March on Washington anniversary last August in light of online speculation about his motives on the jury.

In recent days, a photo of Brandon Mitchell that was originally posted on social media around the Aug. 28 event commemorating Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech began circulating online and on multiple news sites. Many online questioned his motive and its potential to fuel a possible appeal in Chauvin's case


quote:

The matter is likely to be cited by Nelson as one of many bases for an appeal, said a local law professor and defense attorney who are not involved in the case.

"If [Mitchell] specifically was asked, 'Have you ever participated in a Black Lives Matter demonstration,' and he answered, 'No,' to that, I think that would be an important appealable issue," said Joseph Daly, emeritus professor at Mitchell Hamline School of Law.

The picture shows Mitchell, 31, standing next to two of his cousins in Washington D.C. He is wearing a black T-shirt with a picture of King surrounded by the words, "GET YOUR KNEE OFF OUR NECKS" and "BLM" (Black Lives Matter).


quote:

Mitchell said that he answered "no" to two questions in the juror questionnaire sent out before jury selection that asked about participation in demonstrations.

The first question asked, "Did you, or someone close to you, participate in any of the demonstrations or marches against police brutality that took place in Minneapolis after George Floyd's death?"

The second one asked, "Other than what you have already described above, have you, or anyone close to you, participated in protests about police use of force or police brutality?"

If it wasnt real life, this trial would be a comedy movie. AMS could be a movie star.

At first I was like, "well that's not really a protest..."

But then I was like, "frick that liar."

And if Chauvin gets off on appeal, do they burn down his house?

Chauvin knelt on Floyd's neck for nine minutes and 29 seconds as Floyd said 27 times that he couldn't breathe.


Yeah...that seems perfectly acceptable.



How is it possible they could not have found this our during jury selection?

Shows what a clown show the trial was and why it should have been moved.

Mitchell said the social media post was made by his uncle, who is the father of one of the cousins pictured, and appears to be "a partial real post." However, he said, he has no recollection of wearing or owning the shirt.

What? CNN will not cover this story and if they did, it would be of the slant that some extreme right wingers are on a witch hunt against innocent jurors doing their civic duties.

Are jurors under oath when they answer those questions? If so, he should be charged with perjury.


Protesters and out of state federal elected official making threats if he wasn't convicted. A juror admitting they were in fear of retribution from protesters if they didn't convict. Now a juror who lied in response to a question that almost assuredly would've had the defense motion to dismiss him as a juror. Not sure they could make it any easier for the defense to get the conviction thrown out and have to retry the whole case over again.

I imagine the jury pool was larger than normal for this dog and pony show.
