    Default Jury Fear, not due process, lead to Chauvin verdict

    Legal scholar Alan Dershowitz said he was doubtful that the Derek Chauvin guilty verdict was a product of due process and the rule of law. Instead, he pronounced the verdict the result of "outside influences."

    ''I have no real confidence that this verdict, which may be correct in some ways, but I have no confidence that this verdict was produced by due process and the rule of law, rather than the influence of the crowd," Dershowitz said on Tuesday’s edition of ''Spicer & Co.''

    This will be thrown out.

    Maxine Waters ensured a mistrial. And then our befuddled imbecile of a President opined on it, as well.

    I saw the video and I think the knee on the neck was unnecessary, but he didn't get a fair trial with the jury hearing a Congresswoman and a sitting President saying he was guilty and calling for riots if he didn't get a guilty verdict. That's not a fair trial.

    Yep, Biden was out there looking for a guilty verdict prior as well.

    I believe a year straight of protests and riots and killings and it not being stopped... and that feeling of anger towards Chauvin was in the air. The streets spoke and the media stayed on top of them and supported them & consistently condemned the actions of Chauvin.

    I can't say all of these things prior to the jury being chosen and sequestered did anything for 100% - but no way in hell that folks went in this not knowing of the case, or truly having an open mind. Call me jaded, but I've found that many people over the years just have their ways & what they support and will make decisions on what they feel happened pretty much from the get go, and not much going to change their minds.

    Prove me wrong.

    The chance of fairness in our legal system has been slim for decades. Now it's even less.
    “… the greatest detractor from high performance is fear: fear that you are not prepared, fear that you are in over your head, fear that you are not worthy, and ultimately, fear of failure. If you can eliminate that fear—not through arrogance or just wishing difficulties away, but through hard work and preparation—you will put yourself in an incredibly powerful position to take on the challenges you face" - Pete Carroll.

    Default Jury Fear, not due process, lead to Chauvin verdict

    My how times have changed! Back when Manson was on trial in 1970, President Nixon declared Manson guilty of murder, the press went crazy. The practice of using the term “alleged” when referring to a defendant who has not be found guilty resulted.

    Today, Jumpin’ Joe Biden does the same think and crickets.

    Maxine Waters committed a felony, in my opinion. She used language that caused the jurors to fear for their lives and those of their loved ones. Despite the fact that, as a Congresswoman, she is privileged from arrest, that immunity does not extend to felonies

    Article I Section 6

    ...They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.
