Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 4/23/2021 2:22:27 AM

On Tuesday, a jury found Derek Chauvin guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in a case that had sparked nationwide riots: The death of George Floyd.During the course of the trial, Judge Peter Cahill mentioned that the court case was getting dangerously close to mistrial. A new interview with an alternate juror named Lisa Christensen, who lives in Brooklyn Center, provides new insight into the courtroom dynamics.“I just had a fascinating sit-down interview with one of the alternate jurors in the Derek Chauvin trial,” Kare 11 reporter Lou Raguse said Thursday on Twitter.“Lisa Christensen was the juror who lived in Brooklyn Center.

This could happen to anyone of us. Trial by mobs. People too afraid to do the right thing. This is scary.

I agree that this could have happened to any one of us. I cringed at the interview knowing how her admissions brought empowerment not to mention absolute glee to the mobs. Its working from their perspective. Each time they get the desired result, its easier to keep doing it.

All of the above!!!! This is a sad day in our justice system. I pray that this becomes a mistrial. As I said before, this is not going to end well. You can thank people like Maxine Waters, LeBron, Sharpton, Biden, Obama and Harris that keep throwing gas on the fire.

As horrible as Chauvin's conduct was, he didn't kill George Floyd. The guy overdosed. My dachshund could figure that out. It's right there in plain sight in the autopsy report. I hope all of those jurors wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat for years to come, haunted by their consciences. Why wasn't the venue changed? Why wasn't the jury sequestered?

#2, is right. This could and, no doubt, will happen again to anyone the mob decides should be punished. It is getting very scary out there and all because the democrat party has embraced the mob. They have created this monster and I don’t believe they can control it any longer. When they realize that, it will be up to the anyone but them to get it under control. We are witnessing what happens in a country when radicals take control. It is shocking, however, that it has happened here and we can thank the media for that. This could never have happened if the left didn’t have the media supporting and enabling them while going after any opposition to their bloodless coup d’etat. I honestly do not know how this is going to turn out, but frankly, it is not looking good for our side. It takes street fighters to deal with the media and this perverted democrat party and many Republicans are just too afraid to speak up. What a tragedy if the left is successful simply because our side refused to take the field of battle. The Republic created and fought for by men against overwhelming odds is now lost for want of courage. How can our leaders be so utterly weak and clueless?

#6, it is my hope that Derek Chauvin will return to the Lord. This is a time of suffering for the four police officers that were called to a situation. Unfortunately, because there are people with cameras quick to take a picture, the truth may not be visible right away. Throw in the activists, the media, people who are quick to judge etc. and the truth may be squashed. I have a question because of #6's first sentence. Derek Chauvin is surrounded by three of his co-workers and all of them decide to treat George Floyd in this manner and intentionally bring harm to him? It is my understanding that the Minneapolis Police Manual instructs and teaches police officers what to do in these type of situations. It is also my understanding that George Floyd stated that he had COVID. How would you have handled the situation? As I said on a previous post, George Floyd was failed by several entities. First, his parents. If they are alive, it is their responsibility to see that he gets the help he needs. A lot of parents out there wash their hands once their child turns 18. I realize George Floyd was older but caring should never cease at any age. How about the judicial system? How about the medical team who knew he had Covid. Probably would be a good idea to tell a Covid patient not to do drugs? I could go on and on but I won't. I think all of this is sad but the activists have made it worse.

I'm thinking of all the people who have died for this country and our constitution and the due process it contains. They too did not want to die but stepped up for the big picture. I don't even want to fly over this poor excuse for a state that is facilitating tyranny. I also believe the optics were bad and the cop was wrong but the verdict doesn't appear to be fact based.

No question in my mind that this trial should be overturned and remanded with a change of venue somewhere far away from riot centers such as Minneapolis and others. It is outrageous that Maxine Waters remains a member of Congress, and that the President of the United States opined before the verdict about what the verdict should be. But it is not only this trial, but the continued rioting, unauthorized demonstrations, and road blockages that are allowed to continue because of the actions of gutless politicians across the country. These politicians, up to and including the President of the United States, have actually encouraged anarchy by their cowardly refusal to uphold the rights of ordinary citizens.

Has anybody noticed that most of these instances of Mob rule and Mob justice occur in places that are under Democrat control? Maybe the Derek Chauvin trial would have arrived at the same verdict without the Mob intimidation. But, we will never know. Democrats are well on their way to making this country into a living hell.

Now, mask up and get that vaccine so Daddy Weekend-At-Bernie's and President Fauci let us have a back yard barbecue on the 4th of July; you know that day when the old country we used to live in celebrated its independence from tyranny and from a country just like our new United States of Dominion. Appeal? What makes you think the appellate judge will be any different than the alternate juror? Gosh, I hope Bruce Springsteen, CSN&Y, and others get together and write a national anthem for Dominion.

Sorry #6 but Chauvin's conduct was not "horrible." He was n;t gleefully smiling as he passed near the neck and shoulder blade are. Floyd was uncooperative the moment the police showed up. Actually beforehand when one of the Cup Food employees confronted him about the counterfeit $20 bill. As for a jury of one's peers. None of those jurors were Chauvin's peers. Not one with any experience in law enforcement. All civilians who either expressed sympathy towards Floyd or outright hostility towards Chauvin. I was a former federal correctional officer in an all male high security prison. When we had to take down an inmate, there were usually more than one of us and it was in a much more controlled environment than the streets of Minneapolis with bystanders yelling with their smart phones. I think Chauvin acted with great restraint considering all that was going on that day.

See the trend now? Supreme court Justice Roberts was afraid of riots if they ruled on the Texas case about the fraud election of 2020. Let's just let Joe Biden be president and leave it at that. Justice and law in the United States is dead and over. We are being run over by a group of racist haters that are a minority in this country. No lives matter unless they approve of the ones that do.

So there you have it. As I thought. Mob rule won. Jury tampering and intimidation goes unchecked. Our judicial system has just been neutered. Will a mistrial be declared in appeal? Possibly. But, this is about as likely as Auntie Maxine pleading for us to give Chauvin a break and let him go free.

Derek Chauvin is a latter-day virgin that must be sacrificed to the volcano. Wait until his sentencing. There will be more riots. What Officer Chauvin did was wrong because it truly was excessive use of force and certainly seems to lack the smallest amount of understanding that his arrestee was basically immobile and thus, relatively harmless. By showing no mercy --- to be mixed in with his street-hardened justice --- Officer Chauvin deserves to be charged with exactly that --- accidentally contributing to a death caused by other factors. His straw was obviously not the only straw ... but it was the heaviest straw and the last straw. That is what broke Mr. Floyd's back. But, really, murder in the 2nd degree ... which technically vacates murder in the 3rd degree. Really?? I think not. But no matter! We are in Paris now ... circa July, 1793 ... and the mob wants more fed into the guillotine. And they will get many more until we cry ... in unison ... ENOUGH!

It was pretty obvious that this jury was going to go full boat on convictions. They had no other choice. Sacrifice justice or be the subject of the rioters' wrath. They were protecting themselves and their families because no one in authority would have protected them if their verdict came down any other way. And that's where we are today in Biden's/democrats' America. I don't believe even if a request for a mistrial is made, it will be granted. Again, mob violence will drive that decision and once again the mobs will win. As others have said, it worked on the Supreme Court, as well as other judicial jurisdictions and this is not the steal of a presidential election. I agree with the previous poster, we are in the midst of the French Revolution and it is stunning that having waged a bloody and destructive Civil War, some 160 years later our country is for the first time experiencing its own Reign of Terror. Social media has replaced Madame Defarge, Dickens' character in A Tale of Two Cities, based on an actual person in the French Revolution. Instead of Defarge knitting the names of enemies to be killed, it is now Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.......all of the socialist social media forums, along with the main stream media and Democrat party, that viciously pursue and politically persecute anyone who dares to disagree with the mob, be it the George Floyd, COVID, election fraud, or MAGA supporters. The question that has been before us all, as things have gone from bad to vicious, since the election day theft is where do we go from here and who will stop this spiral into madness? I don't even know where to begin to answer that question.

Here's some questions: 1. Why wasn't the trial held outside Minneapolis or the State? Why weren't the jurors sequestered? Why were the jurors allowed to go home where they could be bullied, intimidated, threatened or violated like pig's blood on a front door? Why were threatening mobs allowed to gather with impunity? Why did authority not disperse crowds from gathering around the court house? Why did jurors get to hear political leaders tell them to "get the right verdict?" ala Biden before they decided their verdict? Why did this Circus of a trial be allowed to happen?

It's pretty clear that Justice Roberts and the SC have set the tone for the future of Constitutional law in all courts of this country - we will consider and rule on the small, uncontroversial matters, but when the future of the Nation and our civil liberties are at stake, and where there is a risk that people might actually come out into the streets to cause criminal mayhem to the public and property, we will urn our backs and run for cover. The Ladies Liberty and Justice are both weeping.

Would someone please provide the backing for the claim that the USSC wimped out on for fear of riots? I recall an article posted here where someone alleged that was a reason but I do not recall there being anything beyond that allegation. I ask because I believe that it was the sheep-like non action of all of us and many Americans like us, well before the election was stolen, that emboldened communist shock troops to riot, loot, and burn. Rather than patriotic Americans rising up in defense of their cities, the attitude here was pretty much, "Let them burn. It's what they voted for." As far as the election, the ultimate check on government malfeasance, the people, had not a thought for spontaneous action but sat back waiting for one man and a gaggle of lawyers to do the heavy lifting. I put the blame on all American citizens for riot fear outweighing one's solemn duty on a jury to assess guilt or innocence based on evidence more than the Supreme Court cowering in fear. Those jurors aren't just representative of Minnesota attitudes; they are America.

There’s believing your own news releases. And then there’s believing your own delusions of grandeur. Joe Biden should look at the mirror every day and see a president elected on the basis of the unpopularity of his predecessor at a time when the country was slammed by a once-in-a-century pandemic. Instead, by every account, he sees a transformative leader with a mandate to change America as rapidly and irreversibly as possible. As the news site Axios noted, Biden wants his next 100 days to be “more audacious” than his first 100, as he seeks “to re-engineer the very fundamentals of America — inequality, voting rights and government’s role

Hundreds of Simon & Schuster employees are demanding the publishing giant not publish any books written by former Trump administration officials. The petition demanding the New York publishing conglomerate to stop treating "the Trump administration as a 'normal' chapter in American history" collected 216 internal signatures, representing approximately 14% of the company's workforce, and support from several thousand nonemployees, according to the Wall Street Journal. The petition singled out a planned two-part autobiography to be authored by former Vice President Mike Pence, which the publisher's employees alleged amounted to support for "racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, anti-Blackness, xenophobia, misogyny, ableism, islamophobia, antisemitism, and violence" in the online petition.

COLUMBUS, OH – The Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus has joined hordes of untrained armchair quarterbacks, in order to render her opinion on police procedure after the officer-involved shooting of Ma’Khia Bryant. In Columbus, Ohio on April 20, 2021, Officer Nicholas Reardon had to make a split second decision to intervene as Ma’Khia Bryant rushed toward her potential victim with a knife, after ignoring lawful orders to “get down.” Reardon fired his pistol, striking Bryant and ending the attack. Aid was rendered at the scene, but Bryant was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. Neighbors reported that Bryant “was in full attack mode” and also said:

The howl was loud, prolonged, anguished and animated.Actress Frances McDormand's bizarre imitation of a wolf was comfortably the most surprising and interesting part of this year's Oscars.And although there was a heartfelt story behind it – she was paying tribute to a sound engineer on her movie Nomadland named Michael Wolf Snyder who took his life earlier this year – the howl perfectly encapsulated my own feelings watching the most unwatchable Academy Awards in history.Honestly, if there was an Oscar for Worst Horror Story, it would go to whoever decided it would be a good idea to hold this year's event in a train station.

The number of people who tuned in to watch the three-hour long 'wokefest' that was the Oscars has hit an all time low with just 9.85 million viewers. The television ratings for the 93rd Academy Awards on Sunday night is a 58 percent drop compared to last year's already record-low 23.64 million viewers, according to early Nielsen numbers. The huge drop in ratings for Hollywood's biggest night continues an overall multi-year downward trend for the Academy Awards, which were above 43 million as recently as 2014. It comes after the Grammys, Golden Globes and SAG Awards all experienced more than 50 percent declines

Dan Sullivan (R-AK) called on Kerry to resign during a speech on the Senate floor. It's become clear...that our adversaries, whether Beijing or Iran, like it when John Kerry is in charge of foreign policy and national security. Why?

A few videos are making the rounds showing a wild brawl taking place at one of the gates in Miami International Airport. We don’t know what started the brawl, although the media are reporting that the police did eventually arrest one person for disorderly conduct. The primary victim, however, does not want to press charges, so the matter will almost certainly disappear. What makes one of the videos so compelling is the fact that it seemly represents the breakdown of law and order across American cities.

That's lower than Barack Obama's 62 percent and George W.

Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif claimed in recently leaked audio that John Kerry, when he was serving as Secretary of State during the Obama administration, informed him of more than 200 Israeli operations in Syria. Kerry has previously been accused of colluding with Iranian leaders to undermine the Trump administration. Kerry is now a part of the Biden administration and has a seat on the National Security Council as the special presidential envoy for climate. Kerry shocked Zarif by revealing that Israel had attacked Iranian targets in Syria more than 200 times, according to leaked audio obtained by The New York Times and other outlets.

President Biden is signing an executive order Monday to start an unprecedented, coordinated push by the federal government to encourage more workers to unionize. Mr. Biden will create a White House “task force on worker organizing and empowerment”—led by Vice President Kamala Harris—to mobilize Cabinet agencies and other federal offices to help workers “organize and successfully bargain with their employers,” the White House said. The administration’s statement cited a “steady decline” in union membership in the U.S., from more than 30% of the workforce in the 1950s to 10.8% in 2020. “As the president has said: America was built by the middle class, and unions built

Hong Kong as a whole has been recording fewer daily new infections than the total number detected on the flight, since it brought a fourth wave of infections under control in January. Meanwhile in India, the country's healthcare system is collapsing under a devastating second wave of coronavirus that is killing
