I don’t want to sound harsh – but sometimes, that’s the job of a reporter.
To open the eyes of the public – even by use of “force”.
And to be honest – there have been maaaany cases like the one with officer Derek Chauvin and addict George Floyd. But not one has ended in the newspapers as much as this one. With such pressure – the jury, as well as the judge, were absolutely forced to deliver a “guilty verdict”.
Otherwise – they would have been “eaten alive”, mostly by the Liberally financed and supported Black Lives Matter movement – that is serving for completely different causes than actually demanding justice for the murder of Floyd.
Otherwise, they would have cleared the streets, and this whole fiasco would have ended…
“The judge made a terrible mistake by not sequestering the jury,” he said. “So the judge himself said this case may be reversed on appeal. And I think it might be reversed on appeal. I think it should be reversed on appeal.”
“I think the American Civil Liberties Union, which would be all over this case if it weren’t a racially charged case — all Americans who care about due process and liberty should be concerned that the jury verdict may have been influenced by, if not the thumb, maybe even the elbow of the outside pressures, the fears, the threats. Every juror in that room knew about these threats.”
“So 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.
“A new appeal will be filed immediately, because he’s in jail now, pending appeal,” he added.
He strongly believes that this particular case will be settled by the Supreme Court, saying that the institution “holds the best possibility for the defense of getting this conviction reversed on the ground that the judge himself suggested the statements made by people outside the courtroom essentially intimidating jurors and telling them that if they don’t come to the, quote, right verdict, there will be violence and consequences and their own lives may be affected.”
“Jurors should never, ever have that fear or influence in their verdicts.”

“The evidence, in my view, supports a verdict of manslaughter, but not of murder,” he wrote in an article, that was published by the Gatestone Institute. “Any verdict that did not include a conviction for murder was likely to be unacceptable to Waters and her followers, however, even if the facts and the law mandate that result. Waters is not interested in neutral justice. She wants vengeance for what she and her followers justifiably see as the unjustified killing of George Floyd. That is not the rule of law. That is the passion of the crowd.”
