Report: Juror’s ‘BLM’ T-Shirt Sparks APPEAL Concerns For Chauvin Trial

CHAUVIN APPEAL? Photo online of juror on the Derek Chauvin murder trial wearing: "Black Lives Matter T-shirt" has sparked questions about his impartiality.

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 MLK’s famous 1963 “I have a dream” speech.

Mitchell told the newspaper his uncle had posted the photo to social media.

The juror insisted the DC march had nothing to do with Floyd.
