Well, this isn’t good news! A juror in the Derek Chauvin trial lied about attending a Black Lives Matter protest for George Floyd and may have jeopardized the guilty verdict. He went to the rally last year and wore a “Get Your Knee Off Our Necks/BLM” T-shirt.

What may come back to haunt him is that he answered “no” when asked during jury selection if he went to any protests for George Floyd.

“Brandon Mitchell, known as Juror #52, told Minneapolis news outlets Monday that he attended the Aug. 28 march in Washington, D.C., featuring speeches by George Floyd’s siblings, while a photo circulating online shows him with two cousins wearing the T-shirt as well as a ‘Black Lives Matter’ hat.”
