I watched most of the trial of The State of MN vs Derek Chauvin; and I must say, Mr Nelson is a good attorney. It isn't his fault that the entire case was basically "a foregone conclusion" before ever even going into that court room. Considering the riots that took place last Summer, the protests outside the court room and the fact that businesses were "boarded up", would send a strong signal to any juror. One who does not understand this is a blind fool! The jury SHOULD have been sequestered from the start; AND there should have been a change of venue. The Judge made "excuses" why this wouldn't have made a difference. How does he know? Shouldn't they have at least tried? Whatever happened to "presumption of innocence"? HOW can you even go in under "presumption of innocence" when you don't even TRY to protect that defendant! Furthermore, Ben & Jerry's wrote an entire article on their website; in which they stated that George Floyd died by "murder at the hands of police officers". This was BEFORE the jury was ever even sequestered! I have "screen shot" pictures of their article to PROVE the date was BEFORE the "verdict". That is reprehensible! First of all, they should be sued for claiming someone is guilty of murder BEFORE it was ever even voted on by a jury! Secondly, it is this sort of thing that influences a jury. And anyone with even half a brain knows there was almost a year to "intimidate possible jurors". All this plus Maxine Waters' and Joe Bidens' comments; should be enough for at least an appeal! There were many times Jude Cahill could have decarded a "mistrial"; but instead chose to "wash his hands" of it. In other words, he was like Pontius Pilate that didn't want to get involved with a "mob" screaming "Crucify Him". The "lynchors" have become the "lynchees" and vice versa. Again, anyone who does not understand this is a....(see above).
