One of the jurors who convicted Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd last month defended his participation in a BLM protest last summer in Washington, DC, amid speculation it might be grounds for the cop's appeal.
A photo, posted on social media, shows Brandon Mitchell attending an August 28 event to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr's 'I Have a Dream' speech during the 1963 March on Washington.
It shows Mitchell, a high school basketball coach, standing with two other men and wearing a T-shirt with a picture of King and the words, 'GET YOUR KNEE OFF OUR NECKS' and 'BLM'. He is also wearing a baseball cap printed with Black Lives Matter.

They got their convection, that is all that matters.
Looks like we might get another chance to watch the Democrat Utopias Burn to the Ground!!
We already know this case is going to be overturned on appeal; those jurors just handed it to them.
Juror lied; justice died.
This will be the equal of the Trump admin appealing to the DC circuit....going no where. Same appeals court that put the murder charge back into play. “Its Chinatown Jake”
Yup. There will be an appeal to the chagrin of our oh-so angry resident cop-haters on FR. You know...the ones who always active when a white cop and a ghetto animal shot is involved, until the true facts come out and they shut up..
He should be jailed for Perjury.
Besides, this was just one juror out of 12 and expecting fair trials is an antiquated notion anyway.
Excellent news and a lesson for prosecutors going forward. Questioning prospective jurors isn’t enough, look at their social media activity too.
If the facts are as presented in this article, then there is a potential of a perjury charge against the juror... and definite re-trial bait.
There will be no consequences. Now the juror gets his 15 minutes.
You might like it when cops shoot “ghetto animals” but how about when they arrest regular folks for having too many people in their house, not wearing a mask or for going to church?
Sorry, cops are like guns. They are good if they are controlled by good people and bad when they are controlled by bad people. This is not the America you grew up in. We lost it.
I say defund the police.
I live in the first world around white people who all own guns. I don’t need the police.
Unfortunately, I believe you are right.
This tidbit of information, Mad Max and Mayor’s statements before verdict and that of the alternate juror confessing of BLM riot intimidation...Chauvin will likely get another trial...and should.
This juror lied to the court straight up.
