Derek Chauvin Juror Makes Major Confession After Trial: ‘I Didn’t Want To Go Through The Rioting And Destruction Again’, Was Worried About ‘People Coming To My House’

One of the jurors in the Derek Chauvin murder trial; admitted that she was concerned about rioting if she didn’t not go with a guilty verdict, according to The Federalist.

Juror number 96, Lisa Christensen was concerned about future “rioting and destruction”.

Christensen had “mixed feelings” due to the civil unrest that came along with the court case.

Lisa Christensen shared what she was feeling in an interview.

“There was a question on the questionnaire about it and I put I did not know.”

“The reason, at that time, was I did not know what the outcome was going to be, so I felt like either way you are going to disappoint one group or the other.”

“I did not want to go through rioting and destruction again and I was concerned about people coming to my house if they were not happy with the verdict.”

“It did not impact me as far as the trial went. However, only being about six blocks from the police department, I could hear everything.”

“When I came home, I could hear the helicopters flying over my house.”

“… I could hear the flashbangs going off.”

“If I stepped outside, I could see the smoke from the grenades.”

“One day, the trial ran a little late, and I had trouble getting to my house, because the protesters were blocking the interstate, so I had to go way around.”

“I was aware, but it did not affect me at all.”

“I’ll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned,” Judge Cahill stated.

“It’s overwhelming, in my view,” Biden stated.

“I wouldn’t say that unless the jury was sequestered.”

From The Federalist:

Christensen, who was dismissed by Judge Peter Cahill as an alternate on Monday, also admitted that while she liked the transparency that came with a televised trial, it made the three-week period “more intense.” She also claimed the rioting that occurred in her town of Brooklyn Center during the trial did not affect her approach to conviction but did keep her from getting home one night.

Christensen’s confession follows concerns that Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters’ call to violence if the trial did not result in a guilty conviction could influence the jury’s verdict. Judge Cahill said the Democrat’s charged rhetoric could be grounds for a possible appeal.

President Joe Biden, however, ignored Cahill’s request that politicians not publicly discuss the trial when he announced on Tuesday that he had spoken with the family of George Floyd and that he was “praying the verdict is the right verdict.”
