    How is the juror in question being partial?

    So you agree that any minority who was tried by white people also had their 6th amendment violated because of the systemic racism all whites participate in?

    From a human standpoint no juror is impartial. Its a matter of whether he was at an MLK Anniversary March or it was converted to something else in his opinion as he answered the questions.

    But no juror is impartial and any judge that tries to say they are is naive. There has been rulings that both prosecution and defense get to be aware of their leanings before the trial however.

    From the defense attorney side, if hes not throwing wet pasta at the wall to see what sticks hes not doing his job. Get the frak over it.

    I'm quite satisfied with the sentence, the guy got what he deserved. This was an important court decision and i hope it has a lasting effect in form of a reform of policing in the US. I suppose he's getting a minimum of 12.5 years, so hopefully something around 18 years.

    In my opinion, historically? Nothing. It's a matter of whether he as a juror thought he was at a MLK March or at some BLM march and answered it as such on the questionnaire.

    This may shock you, but they expect you to tell the truth on these forms to the point that it's a crime not to.

    Might not do a damn bit of good for Chauvin. But may hurt the juror depending on how things come down.

    Ah, so for some reason not being a racist is a disqualifying fact in the eyes of Chauvin's defence team? I mean, it makes sence.

    Meh. It's more about the case than it is racism.

    Though if the defense got themselves caught dismissing all for nothing African American jurors then your post might be for something. But that's on them. Not me.
