Left-wing political activists and members of the fake news media have leveled what appear to be implied threats against the jury overseeing the murder trial of officer Derek Chauvin who placed his knee on George Floyd’s neck while in custody.
Democrats, Black Lives Matter, and Antifa rabble took to the streets burning buildings, looting businesses, attacking police officers, and killing innocent bystanders after Floyd’s death. Tensions were inflamed by media outlets such as CNN — widely considered the leader in fake news — liberal instigators and Democrats. As the jury hears fact-based evidence, many believe that the diverse men and women will not necessarily render a guilty verdict on the count of murder.
“This is the system on trial for a generation. And, you know, listen, you can ask any of the people who have been marching out here in the middle of a pandemic, this is going to be there will be half a billion people watching when the verdict comes out,” CNN commentator Van Jones reportedly ranted. “When the verdict comes out. I’m going to tell you right now, these bills that are being passed to chop us off at the voting block and juries coming out saying it’s okay to kill us are putting us in a dangerous position as a country and as America.”
Legal experts who conclude that former officer Chauvin won’t be convicted of murder widely base their opinion on the fact officers mostly followed standard procedure. He refused to be placed in a squad car for transportation when under arrest. He resisted arrest, to some degree, before offers secured him on the ground. Floyd had also ingested drugs such as meth and suffered chronic high blood pressure, which contributed to heart failure.
While few disagree that officers could have ended their use of passive force sooner, that oversight would only likely rise to the level of accidental manslaughter. Left-wing advocates appear to be trying to influence the jury to ignore the law.
The Rev. Al Sharpton recently appeared at the Minnesota courthouse charging up the emotions of protestors. Sharpton has a long and troubling history of inciting political division for profit.
“Derek Chauvin is in the courtroom, but America is on trial,” Sharpton reportedly said, stoking the crowd’s emotions.
Democrats such as Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar recently pushed a bill through the U.S. House that would make Chauvin’s actions a criminal offense. She and other anti-police Democrats are sending a message to convict even though neck restraints are largely a lawful use of force when making an arrest.
“My city is not an outlier, but rather an example of the inequalities our country has struggled with for centuries,” said Rep. Omar reportedly said.
In Minneapolis, business owners are preparing for long nights of looting and destruction by outfits such as Black Lives Matter should the officer be found not guilty by a racially diverse jury. Political activists are already at ground zero complaining about business owners protecting their livelihood.
“Their justice, their safety is putting up barricades and hindering our First Amendment right for public assembly and protest,” Angela Rose Myers, president of the Minneapolis branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, reportedly said. “We are not here to hinder justice. We are here to deliver justice.”
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that was a threat.
