Derek Chauvin asks for new trial
By Tal Axelrod - 05/04/21 06:17 PM EDT

Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who was convicted last month of killing George Floyd, filed a request Tuesday asking for a new trial

Eric Nelson, Chauvin’s attorney, alleged that juror misconduct and pretrial publicity in part led to Chauvin’s conviction for second- and third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in Floyd's death last year.

Chauvin’s legal team specifically cited the court’s rejection of its request to change the hearing’s venue outside of Minneapolis.

I'm not a lawyer, but I think that there are obvious reasons that a new trial is warranted.  Given the climate of the country right now, I doubt that a new trial will be granted.
GOD Bless America, have mercy upon this country and stop the evil that has a stranglehold on our Republic from prevailing.

First trial was a disgrace.  Chauvin's rights were violated by many, particularly the moronic judge.

He is innocent, and had no business being charged in the first place.

The hell with the climate of the country.

This is about dispelling justice concerning the law.

If that cannot be done, we have no laws. Period.
