There are questions now being raised about Juror #52 in the Derek Chauvin trial, reportedly Brandon Mitchell. Mitchell has now come forward and given interviews on several shows. Speaking to the “Get Up! Mornings” show with Erica Campbell on April 27, Mitchell spoke about his experience on the jury. During the interview, Campbell said that many people aren’t all that eager to do jury duty.CORRECTION*


This verdict is going to be appealed, and Chauvin is going to win on that appeal. What happens after that? More riots.

Of course more riots, what do you expect. This thing has been a disaster since the start. The jurors were afraid of causing riots and voted accordingly. blm should be recognized for what it it, a terrorist group.

Several of the jurors greatly downplayed their knowledge about the case - saying they did not know details, only saw the original video for a brief moment, etc... Like this guy, they wanted to 'make history' by being on the jury.

He isn’t the first juror to admit that the verdict was not about guilt or innocence. The appeal will be far more interesting than the original trial.

We know exactly what happened and we knew it on the day of the verdict. They convicted Chauvin to appease the Mau Mau. Three more officers are facing a similar fate simply for coming to work that day.

There is no way that any prospective juror residing in the Minneapolis area could not be aware of the George Floyd case unless he or she hatched out of an eggshell the day the jury was selected. This guy lied to the Judge about his knowledge of the incident and all the violence that took place after the incident. There is no way that the police officer got a fail trial, because of all the TV coverage and violent rioting that took place in that community, anyone with a brain knows that those jurors were scared to death not to come back with guilty verdicts. If there ever was a criminal case that should have been moved with a change of venue as far from Minneapolis as possible this was it.

Here’s an article on Brandon Mitchell and what he said on one program - posted at Lucianne a few days ago. He remarked that all of the jurors were in agreement from the start. That only one held out and thought they should deliberate, wanted to ask questions,, and so forth. The inference you’d draw was that he considered that holdout juror to be a pain. Everybody but her wanted to get on with it. Have a look at him and read his words here:

If you find the picture of this guy in his BLM shirt it is pretty clear he got on that jury with the intent of convicting Chauvin to advance his cause. He must have been less than truthful to get on the jury.

What was the racial make-up of the jury overall? Were white jurors excluded? Or is that OK? Also, a facebook post by this juror's cousin shows him wearing a BLM shirt that says Take Your Knee Off of My Neck. He should have been excluded for cause. Not that it makes any difference--see Roger Stone case.

If the appeals court decides that there should be a new trial with a change of venue, how many Minnesota communities do you think will stand up and raise up their hands to welcome such a new trial being held in their communities? The result of that should tell you something!

Like #15, IMO from the beginning, a change of venue was absolutely required. But what community would want such a trial? I also wonder about charging an accused with Two categories of Murder. Shouldn't the prosecution have the burden of asserting Exactly which crime is alleged? Not a lawyer; each state has variations. Basically it looked like manslaughter to me. Chauvin got angry and thought he would teach that SOB a lesson.

Hold a real trial with active duty military from overseas TDY to a base not in the Northeast, in secret, with all the ID procedures if held in some city somewhere. Civilian procedures but using military rules.

Headline #1: Biden Addresses Congress, Announces More Spending On Wednesday evening, President Joe Biden made his first address to a joint session of Congress, during which he made several predictable assertions and unveiled his plan for a few more trillion dollars in spending.

Washington The Biden administration is considering using outside firms to track extremist chatter by Americans online, an effort that would expand the government's ability to gather intelligence but could draw criticism over surveillance of US citizens. The Department of Homeland Security is limited in how it can monitor citizens online without justification and is banned from activities like assuming false identities to gain access to private messaging apps used by extremist groups such as the Proud Boys or Oath Keepers. Instead, federal authorities can only browse through unprotected information

Officials said Chenasia Campbell, a passenger, went to the crew area of the plane and yelled at a flight attendant for not picking up her garbage.

When will the United States reach herd immunity to COVID-19? Experts now say it might not — but that doesn't mean the virus has to remain a "society disrupter." That's according to a new report in The New York Times, which says there is now a "widespread consensus among scientists and public health experts" that in the U.S., the "herd immunity threshold is not attainable — at least not in the foreseeable future, and perhaps not ever."

EPA to propose phasing-out

The Environmental Protection Agency is set to issue wide-reaching regulations on Monday to curb the use and production of greenhouse gases from the refrigeration and air conditioning industries. The new regulations will target the production and importation of hydrofluorocarbons—commonly known as HFCs. The chemical compound was first developed in the 1980s to replace more harmful greenhouse gasses that depleted the earth’s ozone layer. EPA Administrator Michael Regan will propose that U.S. will curb HFCs emissions 85% by 2035. “With this proposal, EPA is taking another significant step under President Biden’s ambitious agenda to address the climate crisis,” Mr. Regan said. “The phasedown of HFCs

Failed special election Democrat candidate Jana Lynne Sanchez has sounded the alarm that 2022 “could be a major setback” for Democrats if they lose their slim majority in the House of Representatives. Sanchez, after not receiving enough votes last Saturday to make the special election runoff, has a very strong message for the Democrats. Sanchez lost by fewer than 400 votes to come in third place. Republican candidates did extremely well, edging out the rest of the field. Sanchez said the Republicans received an overwhelming majority (62 percent) of the total voters. Sanchez continued to say, “all the things I thought would have motivated Democrats” to come and vote failed.

Bill and Melinda Gates have had a decades-long agreement that the Microsoft boss could vacation for a long weekend at the beach every year with his venture capitalist ex-girlfriend.

Bill, 65, and venture capitalist Ann Winblad, 70, dated in the 80s but broke up in 1987, the same year he met future wife Melinda. Ann was reportedly more ready for marriage than Bill as he worked day and night to build his billion-dollar Microsoft empire.

Charlie Crist, the state’s former Republican governor turned Democratic congressman, is expected to announce next week that he’s making a second run for governor as a Democrat. Crist said in a recent television interview that he is considering running for governor and tweeted Saturday that he will make a “major announcement” on May 4 in his home town of St. Petersburg. Crist won the governor’s mansion as a Republican in 2006 after many years in GOP politics. He decided not to seek a second term, instead running in 2010 for a U.S. Senate seat, which he lost to Sen. Marco Rubio. In 2014 Crist tried to mount a comeback as a Democrat,
