Juror who vowed impartiality in George Floyd case, despite donning BLM shirt, now touts jury duty as activism

Juror who vowed impartiality in George Floyd case, despite donning BLM shirt, now touts jury duty as activism. By RT.

One of the jurors in the murder trial of former Minneapolis policeman Derek Chauvin … said in an interview that serving on such panels is a form of community activism.

Brandon Mitchell, the first juror to come out publicly and do media interviews about the Chauvin trial, told syndicated radio host Erica Campbell this week that serving on juries is important “if we wanna see change, we wanna see some things going different.” He added, “We gotta get out there and get into these avenues, get into these rooms to try to spark some change. Jury duty is one of those things – jury duty, voting. All of those things we gotta do.” …

Mitchell, a 31-year-old black man who coaches high school basketball in Minneapolis, where Floyd’s infamous death occurred, reportedly told Judge Peter Cahill during jury selection in March that he hadn’t heard anything about the George Floyd civil case. He said he may have heard some basic information in news reports about trial dates and whatnot, but nothing that would prevent him from serving as an impartial juror.

Mitchell also told Chauvin’s defense lawyer during questioning that he didn’t know whether Chauvin did anything wrong and that he believed the officer had no intention of harming anyone.

However, a Facebook post last August by Travis Mitchell, uncle of Brandon Mitchell, appears to show the future juror wearing a BLM hat and a BLM T-shirt with a message that alluded specifically to the George Floyd incident: “Get your knee off our necks.”

Lies and corruption. When the dishonest and less able outweigh the honest and able, society suffers.

Here’s looking particularly at BLM, who so far have a perfect track record of lying (Trayvon Martin, hands up don’t shoot, and George Floyd), and have wrought only destruction, division, and the Biden regime.
