    ‘I Didn’t Want to Go Through the Rioting’: Juror in Chauvin Trial Makes Stunning Admission over ‘Guilty’ Verdict

    April 22, 2021
    by Kyle Becker



    On Tuesday, a jury found Derek Chauvin guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in a case that had sparked nationwide riots: The death of George Floyd.

    During the course of the trial, Judge Peter Cahill mentioned that the court case was getting dangerously close to mistrial. A new interview with an alternate juror named Lisa Christensen, who lives in Brooklyn Center, provides new insight into the courtroom dynamics.

    “I just had a fascinating sit-down interview with one of the alternate jurors in the Derek Chauvin trial,” Kare 11 reporter Lou Raguse said Thursday on Twitter.

    “Lisa Christensen was the juror who lived in Brooklyn Center. One night she could hardly make it home after testimony ended because of protesters blocking intersections.”

    “Christensen thought Derek Chauvin was guilty,” Raguse continued. “Dr. Martin Tobin was the witness who influenced her the most toward that conclusion.”

    That demonstration where the jurors felt their necks? Extremely effective.

    “That demonstration where the jurors felt their necks? Extremely effective,” he said.

    “She went home every night and took additional notes about how each witness,” he continued. “When he turned and said, Number 96, you’re an alternate, yeah, my heart broke a little bit.”

    Here is the part where we begin to get a better picture of the immense pressure these jurors were under to deliver a “guilty” verdict.

    “This was shocking to me, but Christensen told me she and the other jurors didn’t even share their real names and occupations with each other,” Raguse said. “Just called each other by juror number. Got along but mostly made small talk. Concerned about saying ‘too much.'”

    Christenson outright admitted that jury intimidation played a major part in the trial.

    Before the ‘guilty’ verdicts were rendered in the case, major Democratic politicians stated that the “right” decision would be a guilty verdict.

    “I’m praying the verdict is the right verdict, which is — I think it’s overwhelming, in my view,” President Biden told reporters in the Oval Office. “I wouldn’t say that unless the — the jury was sequestered now and not hearing me say that.”

    California Representative Maxine Waters actually flew to Minneapolis amidst rioting, requested police protection, and then further inflamed tensions with inciteful rhetoric.



    “We are looking for a guilty verdict,” Waters said. “We are looking for a guilty verdict. And we are looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd. If nothing does not happen then we know.”

    This was an obvious case of jury tampering and an effort to sway the verdict with political pressure and implied threats.

    Judge Peter Cahill, who presided over the Chauvin trial, responded to Waters attempt to sway the outcome of the trial.

    “I’m aware that Congresswoman Waters was talking specifically about this trial, and about the unacceptability of anything less than a murder conviction, and talk about being ‘confrontational,’ ” Judge Peter Cahill said.

    “Beyond the articles that we’re talking specifically about the facts of this case, a congresswoman’s opinion really doesn’t matter a whole lot,” Cahill said.
    But, he did note that Waters may have provided the defense “something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned.”

    Now, that at least one member of the jury has shed light on the role jury intimidation played in the trial, we may see an appeal to the ‘guilty’ verdict sooner rather than later.

    Yet another example of "Witness Intimidation" for the Defense to declare a mistrial and/or the verdict overrulled on appeal. And they are going to appeal.

    and thus an appeal, for just one issue, will be granted. Cauvin can be convicted for being stupid but he still has rights. violence and intimidation are the judge and jury today. sad end of the USA...officially.
    it just hasn't seeped down through the ranks yet, but it will. prep and pray, the end has arrived.

    She may have done it for the wrong reason but she was still correct to convict. Nobody needed that cop to act like judge, jury and executioner all at the same time choking the life out of yes he was a slime ball but did NOT deserve THAT.

    Floyd died from a fentanyl overdose, not asphyxiation. The fentanyl was self administered.
    There are 11 different drugs on his tox report, but it was the 4x fatal does of fentanyl that killed him.
    Get it through that ass you use as a brain.

    Forget trying to reason, they are lost.

    It is scary to ask those who you thought had a brain how any testimony given proved beyond a reasonable doubt the elements of the charge. Most just stare at you with that deer in the headlight look.
