    Juror’s ‘BLM’ T-shirt sparks concerns about Derek Chauvin trial: report – By Kenneth Garger (The New York Post) / May 4 2021

    A photo that recently emerged online of a juror on the Derek Chauvin murder trial wearing a Black Lives Matter T-shirt has sparked questions about his impartiality, according to reports.

    Juror Brandon Mitchell, 31, who is black, could be seen in the photo wearing the T-shirt emblazoned with a picture of Martin Luther King Jr. and the phrases “Get your knee off our neck” and “BLM.” He is also wearing a “Black Lives Matter” hat in the photo.

    Mitchell was the first member of the jury that convicted Chauvin of murdering George Floyd to publicly comment about the trial.

    In a Monday interview with the Star Tribune, Mitchell said the photo is from a rally in Washington, DC, last summer commemorating Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech.
