Well that didn’t take long. A juror of the Derek Chauvin trial admitted to reporters yesterday that she was tired of the rioting and afraid that she would be targeted personally for being a juror if people were not happy with the verdict.
Even the judge admitted during the trial that they were already dangerously close to a mistrial for a load of reasons. Beyond the now admission of threats and fear of violence from the jurors, Maxine Waters’ speech demanding a guilty virdict while inciting more anger and riots could very well be the cherry on top for an appeal to overturn the verdict.
Not many believe the trial was fair and held properly. How could it when it’s in the middle of the action in the town where it took place and the nonstop violence and media coverage for a year. Finding impartial jurors is nearly impossible. We don’t know how you can hold a fair trial for anyone. Instead it seems more like the Salem witch trials than anything else. Guilty or not guilty.
The only question that remains at this point, is when will they file the appeal?
