For weeks, the jury’s “impartiality” in the Derek Chauvin murder trial has been questioned. BLM not only threatened to torch cities if Chauvin was not found guilty, but Maxine Waters herself advised demonstrators to “be more confrontational” if there were no clear charges against Chauvin.
Now, a new photo of juror Brandon Mitchell has surfaced, significantly increasing the chances of Chauvin’s defense team filing an appeal.

Mitchell is seen in an August 2020 photo wearing a shirt that reads “Get Your Knees Off Our Necks,” a direct reference to Chauvin and the police.
Mitchell’s questionnaire responses, according to jury expert Alan Tuerkheimer, could lead to Chauvin’s attorney filing an appeal. Tuerkheimer added that the judge might summon Mitchell for questioning.
“It could alter the outcome of things; if there is something that makes him seem to be uncooperative, the judge could rethink the case,” Tuerkheimer told the Washington Post.
Meanwhile, civil rights lawyer Brian Dunn told the Washington Post that the photo “undeniably suggests a potential bias in this juror.”
Here’s more from the New York Post on the basic questions Mitchell was asked during the selection process:
“Each prospective juror is asked to complete a questionnaire that includes questions regarding involvement in demonstrations and protests as part of the jury selection process.
According to the newspaper, one question asked, “Did you, or anyone close to you, engage in any of the protests or marches against police violence that took place in Minneapolis after George Floyd’s death?”
“Aside from what you’ve already mentioned, have you or anyone close to you engaged in demonstrations about police use of force or police brutality?” the other inquired.
Mitchell said he replied “no” to both questions, according to the Tribune.
If the evidence reveals that Mitchell lied when answering these questions, the case will almost certainly be dismissed.
Also left-wing news outlets are acknowledging that the trial decision is in doubt because of this juror’s blunder.
