Do you think there will be hell to pay of Chauvin gets a retrial and his previous verdicts are revoked?


One of the jurors who spoke out after the Derek Chauvin Verdict and revealed that one juror was CLOSE to voting not guilty after some convincing was revealed to have attended a BLACK LIVES MATTER march with conservatives now demanding a RETRIAL for the former officer now convicted killer!!

The speculation about his motives for serving on the jury and whether it would be grounds for appeal where a photo of Brandon Mitchell attending an August 28th event to commemorate MLK JR's "I have a dream" speech during the 1963 March on Washington.

The photo recently surfaced online as it shows him standing with 2 cousins with a picture of King and the words "GET YOUR KNEE OFF OUR NECKS" and "BLM"

The 31 y/o acknowledged being at the event and his uncle posting the photo but doesn't recall wearing or owning the shirt.

He was one of the 12 jurors who convicted Chauvin and is the first to go public

He said "I'd never been to DC. The opportunity to go to DC, the opportunity to be around thousands and thousands of black people, i just thought it was a good opportunity to be a part of something."

The AP has not received messages back from Mitchell and Chauvin's attorney if they plan to appeal after this relevation

Mike Brandt, a Minneapolis Defense Attorney said the revelation alone wasn't nearly enough to overturn the conviction but could be combined with other issues with the massive settlement with Floyd's family during jury selection and the shooting of Daunte Wright, the judge's refusal to move the trial could be an appeal to say Chauvin was denied a fair trial

But Ted Sampsell-Jones, a professor at Mitchell Hamline School of Law however said this could be what Chauvin needs to get what he needs to ask for a retrial and said this wasn't the fault of the judge or prosecutors but a function of publicity and public pressure

Mitchell said "No" to 2 questions that 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? and 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?"

Mitchell said during jury selection he had a very favourable opinion of BLM and knew some police officers at his gym who are "great guys" but felt neutral to blue lives matter, a pro police group.

He said he could be neutral on trial and said lst summer's protest was 100% not a march for floyd but a march for MLK's March...

Do you think there will be hell to pay if Chauvin verdicts get revoked and there's a retrial?

There are riots when he's found guilty because people still aren't satisfied. I don't think either verdict would make a difference.

Ok so because Duckbear fails, I saw in another place where apparently dude in question was asked twice if he had attended any rallies during the jury interview and he said no both times.

Does that taint the jury? That question is way outside the realm of my meager legal knowledge, but maybe?

wtf? So that was a clearly compromised juror then?

idk, if a jury lied about an affiliation like that, I kinda wonder if it could be grounds for a mistrial that would result in a retrial.

The problem is clearly he lied and went in knowing exactly how he was going to vote, because he had demonstrated it by being at the very rallies protesting Floyd's death. And while you could argue "well, it's one juror," technically all a defendant needs is one juror to get another trial.

Helly with the trolling again. When was the last time I posted a topic about the numerous riots that have happened? If I were so inclined to discuss riots and looting, I'd have no end of content over the past few years. As for Whiskey, who the fuck knows where he is now? His alt got banned and, unlike you, he apparently doesn't have a ton of spares to fall back on, so if he's still on Gamefaqs, he's probably getting his karma back up so he can use PotD.

I think the only political topic I've posted this year might have been when I was dunking on Andrew Yang the other week. I didn't post about John Kerry not wearing a mask on a flight or the continued allegations that he had been conducting shadow diplomacy with Iran while Trump in office (which was worse than the initial charge against Michael Flynn, who initially had only got in trouble for speaking with diplomats before Trump was officially in office; but, you know, rules and laws don't apply to men like John Kerry).

No, its really easy.

Jurors arent supposed to know anything about the case at all. Which is why this case is pointless, because youd have to be not alive, or somewhere in the deepest parts of Siberia to not know about it.

Really, that's true for most highly-publicized cases, regardless of the juror's actions. The notion of finding a perfectly impartial juror who has no pre-existing opinion on a case that they've already heard about has never been anything more than a fantasy. You'd be extremely hard-pressed to find somebody that doesn't want a murderer convicted for committing a murder, but that doesn't mean people can't be convinced that it wasn't a murder if the evidence presented doesn't prove that it was.

Eh, that's debatable. The BLM rallies following Floyd's death were protesting a whole lot more than just Floyd's death, even if Floyd was the last straw. The claim could very easily be made that he felt that police violence was a problem in a more general sense, but not necessarily that Chauvin was an example of it. Despite people's attempts to characterize it as such, BLM is not a hive mind, and the issue of police brutality is a whole lot more nuanced than "let's just throw all the cops in jail."

This isn't true lmao. You can know about a case. You have to declare that your knowledge of the case isn't clouded in bias and you feel you can impartially judge the case.

Precisely. Efforts should be made to filter out jurors that will ignore the evidence presented and vote based on what they've already decided, obviously, but there's nobody alive that doesn't have a first impression on a case, even in the fantasy ideal scenario of them going in completely blind. The trial process accounts for and seeks to mitigate that first impression.

Presumably, he blocked me because I don't let him get away with being wrong, which I consider to be a compliment.

You'd be extremely hard-pressed to find somebody that doesn't want a murderer convicted for committing a murder, but that doesn't mean people can't be convinced that it wasn't a murder if the evidence presented doesn't prove that it was.

There's a pretty massive gulf between "maybe he's heard a litle about this trial" and "he's attended protests related to the subject of the trial while being pictured next to people with shirts specifically protesting the person on trial". While it can be hard to find somebody who hasn't heard about a case at all, you can do a fuckton better than going with somebody who already had their mind made up and lied about their activities to get on the jury panel. If you're going in with that level of bias, no amount of evidence can change a person's mind (and that's assuming that they're not interested in convicting regardless of guilt to send a social message, which both some BLM supporters and people on Gamefaqs have suggested in other cases involving alleged police brutality)

So you mean instead having a bias specifically against Chauvin, he was biased against all police? Either way, that removes any possibility at a fair trial.

Sure there it can. Strong opinions can be changed with strong evidence/arguments. Conveniently, given the publicly-known facts of this case, strong evidence/arguments were the only way anyone that hadn't already decided to ignore all the murdering could possibly be convinced that Chauvin wasn't guilty, so it's unlikely having strong opinions on the publicly-known facts of the case would affect the verdict.

Zeus posted...
So you mean instead having a bias specifically against Chauvin, he was biased against all police?

The fact that you're characterizing "he thinks police shouldn't brutalize and kill unarmed people over non-violent crimes" as "he's biased against all police" really says a lot about your ability to view this issue impartially.

Zeus posted...

How melodramatic.

I'm curious, Zeus: Do you think Derek Chauvin should have been found guilty of murder?

Theres possibly an argument for a mistrial although that is seriously a stretch at this point considering how often jurors misunderstand questions or arent paying enough attention and answer wrongly, this kind of thing isnt all that uncommon and its one of the reasons you need a unanimous verdict from jurors in a case like this.

to suggest his guilty murder verdict should be overturned based on this though is pretty far and away detached from reality

Yeah, but no one would be crazy enough to do something like a mistrial with the mob out. And let's face it, Chauvin, isn't worth dieing over anyways. He still fucked up massively
