George Parry: Derek Chauvin's Trial: Countdown to a Kangaroo Court

AOF: Parry is a retired federal and state prosecutor who'd previously written three articles (linked below) about the outrageous, farcical charges against the Minneapolis cops.  They're the victims in the case, not the late George Floyd ...

N.S.: The phrase "the 13th juror" refers to the expectations of black rioters running amok, which causes jurors to convict innocent men. However, the riots can sometimes be the stuff of self-fulfilling prophecies. The black supremacists who initiated the L.A. riots in 1992, were not responding to the acquittals of the four innocent LAD cops who'd brutally but lawfully and ethically beaten felon Rodney King to a pulp, after he repeatedly, violently resisted arrest, after leading them and California Highway Patrol officers on a chase in which the intoxicated King reached speeds of 110-115 MPH. The were unaware of the jury's verdict, and were simply terrorizing South Korean businessmen, which they did all the time. Officers at the the scene, according to Lou Cannon's epic work, Official Negligence, were in a position to bring the violence to an end, but their cowardly commanders ordered them to run away. Unfortunately, this was not a Monthy Python movie, and so when black supremacists all over town saw the media broadcasting police cowardice, they hit the bricks and burned the city down, racially slaughtering some 53 people, causing over $1 billion in damage, and raping, robbing, and maiming countless others (remember Reginald Denny?).

Every news operation in the country had shown the same propaganda videotape, which had been doctored by an unnamed newsroom perp at KTLA, every night for an entire year, at the top of the news, in order to prime the public for the riots the media hoped to incite.

All sorts of fake historians and fake journalists have written fairy tales rationalizing every black riot ever committed. In Nicholas Lehman's gracefully written, fake book, The Big Test, which was supposed to rationalize ending the SAT, he retailed the Myth of Soon Ja Du.

Soon Ja Du was a diminutive, South Korean business owner, who was covering for her son, whom racist black gangsters had threatened with death.

Mrs. Du had caught a strapping, black, 150-pound, 15-year-old girl named Latasha Harlins shoplifting some orange juice. When Mrs. Du grabbed Harlins, the latter, who was known to punch like a man, gave the middle-aged woman a brutal beating, and then sought to leave.

Mrs. Du ran to behind her counter, retrieved a gun, and shot her attacker dead. According to the authorities, who believed that black racists had a "right" to brutally beat Asians and Whites, Mrs. Du had committed murder. I fail to see that she had committed any crime. A compassionate White judge, Joyce Ann Karlin, seeing that any jail time in a black-dominated women's prison would be a death sentence, sentenced Mrs. Du to probation, thereby sacrificing her own career.

Lehman fabulated the Du-Harlins case as the "cause" of the racist, black riots. He made a point of refusing to mention that during the previous year, racist black robbers had gratuitously murdered no fewer than nine South Korean store clerks in Los Angeles alone.
blacks believe they have a right to riot. Who will prove them wrong?

Note, too, that George Parry is implicitly adjudging Minneapolis' blacks to be racist savages.

Derek Chauvin's Trial: Countdown to a 
Kangaroo Court
The idea of an "impartial jury" is laughable.

Mob law does not become due process of law by securing the assent of a terrorized jury.
– Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, dissent in the appeal of Leo Frank, April 19, 1915
On March 8, 2021, jury selection will begin in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin for the alleged murder of George Floyd, and the city and state governments are preparing for another round of violence, rioting, looting, and burning similar to that which followed Floyd's death.
According to KARE11 News, "The area around the Hennepin County Courthouse is starting to look like a war zone now that the [courthouse] plaza is surrounded by metal fencing and concrete barriers."
Here's a cross-section of those barriers:

KARE11 also reports that, a few blocks away from the courthouse, the Hennepin County jail has been heavily fortified and more security measures will be put in place. These include fortification of police precincts and patrols throughout the city by the Minnesota National Guard, which, according to Minneapolis Deputy Police Chief Erick Fors, will provide "a presence and a deterrence in key business corridors."
The Minneapolis Department of Economic Policy and Development has issued "new guidance" for business owners who "may be concerned" about security during the trial. The Department's Director Erik Hansen stated that they are not recommending that business owners board up windows and doors, but that is an option they can consider: The Department has encouraged businesses to "check in with their insurance companies" and "really go into their policies and what is covered."
[N.S.: We refuse to protect you, and also refuse to give you sound advice about self-protection.]
David Rubedor of the Minneapolis Neighborhood and Community Relations Department advised that his office is holding weekly meetings with the leaders of all 70 of the city's neighborhood associations.
"These leaders have been great partners with us over this last year… dealing with the civil unrest… and so we expect that relationship to continue as we go through the trial period," said Rubedor.
[What did they do to stop their members from rioting? Nothing.]
Minneapolis' Metro Transit is working with the city to keep riders up to date about transit delays or cancellations that might happen during the trial.
For a more detailed summary of the trial-related precautions, here's a 39-minute video of the police briefing the media:  [[I haven't watched this. -- AOL]]
Minneapolis officials apparently fear that, during Chauvin's trial, they will have to deal with a repeat of the violence, looting, and burning that destroyed much of the city following the release of selected parts of the video of George Floyd's arrest.
"We are working to be prepared for anything that might happen," said Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey. "Undoubtedly the primary flashpoint associated with this trial will be the jury deliberation and the verdict itself, and it's really impossible at this point to know what date that will be on, whether it's late April or early May."
[N.S.: Correction: We are working to respond with the same sort of craven support of racist, black violence as last time.]
The mayor is correct insofar as an acquittal of Chauvin would undoubtedly result in a city-wide explosion of violence and destruction.
But is an acquittal even possible? Didn't the arrest video clearly and unequivocally show in real time the police defendants calmly and deliberately murdering Floyd in broad daylight while wearing body cameras recording their every move and before eyewitnesses with video cameras? Didn't Mayor Frey himself pronounce them guilty the day after Floyd's arrest and demand that they be fired by the police department?
And, in the immediate aftermath of Floyd's death, didn't the Minneapolis city council vote to abolish the police department even as Mayor Frey knelt weeping before Floyd's gold casket?

So, since Chauvin is clearly guilty and his conviction is in the bag, why are the authorities preparing for World War Three?
The answer is simple. As I have attempted to explain in several previous articles in The American Spectator ("Who Killed George Floyd?," "The George Floyd Fall Guys," and "Minnesota v. Derek Chauvin et al.: The Prosecution's Dirty Little Secret"), in sharp and devastating contrast to its widely broadcast and selectively edited version, the full and complete arrest video and the findings at autopsy combine to make a compelling defense case that the police did not kill Floyd.
[N.S.: Vgl. the Rodney King railroading of the innocent LAPD cops, thanks to President George Herbert Walker Bush.]
As depicted in the unedited video, Floyd repeatedly shouted that he couldn't breathe well before he was on the ground with Chauvin's knee on the side of his neck. This occurred because, as found at autopsy, Floyd's lungs were filled with fluid brought on by a lethal dose of fentanyl, which depresses respiration and is known to cause pulmonary edema.
Further to this point, I was privileged to narrate a video analysis of Floyd's arrest (linked to here) produced by Centaur Film Works, which will walk you through the evidence that undercuts the prosecution case.
Nevertheless, since those articles and that video analysis, the prosecution's prospects have grown dimmer.
Despite vigorous opposition by the prosecution, the court has granted the defense motion that Chauvin's trial be televised. In other words, the defense wants the world to see all the evidence, and the prosecution doesn't. Why? Because once you get past the heavily edited and misleading video evidence and review all of the relevant proof, it becomes clear that the police did not cause Floyd's death.
More importantly, despite its legal obligation to timely provide the defense with exculpatory evidence, the prosecution delayed production of a devastating FBI 302 report (linked to here) of a July 8, 2020, interview of Hennepin County Medical Examiner Andrew Baker regarding Floyd's autopsy. The prosecution didn't cough up this 302 until October 28, 2020, at which time the defense learned that, in the 302, Dr. Baker "defined the mechanism of death as Floyd's heart and lungs stopping due to the combined effects of his health problems as well as the exertion and restraint involved in Floyd's interaction with police prior to being on the ground" (emphasis added).
Here are some other quotations from the Baker 302:
  • Baker could not provide an answer if "but for" the actions of the officers would Floyd have lived. Baker could not predict what would have occurred. Baker did not know if Floyd would have lived but for the officer's [sic] actions. 
  • Baker did believe that because of Floyd's heart disease and intoxicants, the stress from the events that occurred with Minneapolis police officers was more than Floyd could tolerate.
  • Floyd's heart was larger than it should be. There was no evidence that Floyd's airway was literally blocked shut. When viewing the body camera footage, the pressure did not appear to be directly over Floyd's airway. Floyd would have been unable to speak if pressure was directly over his airway.
  • Officer Chauvin's positioning on Floyd's body does not fit anatomically with occluding Floyd's airway.
  • The absence of petechiae weighs against strangulation. Petechiae occurs [sic] due to vascular occlusion that causes blood vessels to rupture. 
  • The struggle between officers and Floyd weighed into Baker's opinion because physical exertion increases heart rate, releases adrenaline, and increases respiratory rate as well as cardiac demand. All [sic] off these things increased the likelihood of a bad outcome.
  • Fentanyl may cause pulmonary edema in some individuals. Evidence of pulmonary edema was found during Floyd's autopsy. This evidence was that Floyd's lungs were heavy compared to normal lungs. Additionally, Floyd's lungs were were diffusely edematous. Baker defined edematous as "full of fluid."
There's more, but you get the idea. No wonder the prosecution was reluctant to produce Dr. Baker's 302. One is left to wonder at the size of the laundry bill for the prosecutors' underpants after it landed in their inbox.
Now, as you can see, before a fair and impartial jury, Derek Chauvin would have more than a fighting chance at acquittal. But that assumes that a fair, impartial, and unintimidated jury can be drawn from amidst the traumatized population of the Hennepin County war zone.
How can Chauvin even remotely hope to receive a fair trial before an impartial and non-terrorized Hennepin County jury when the previously burned and looted city of Minneapolis appears to be primed to explode if Chauvin is acquitted?
Is there a rational juror who would ever vote to acquit Chauvin knowing that doing so would subject the juror and the juror's family, friends, property, and peaceful existence to threats, harassment, and mob violence?
This is not some remote concern. A potential juror need only look at the draconian preparations being taken by the authorities to readily understand the very real and imminent threat of violence and destruction should there be an acquittal.
Having tried more than my share of highly contentious and high-profile cases under difficult circumstances, it is my less-than-humble opinion that there is no conceivable possibility that Derek Chauvin can receive a fair trial in Hennepin County, simply because it will be impossible to seat an unintimidated jury free from the threat of mob violence. Conducting a trial under these circumstances will serve only to put a thin veneer of pretend due process on what in reality will be a legalized lynching based on a verdict rendered by a properly and quite understandably terrorized jury.
It's time to call a halt to this farce and to move Derek Chauvin's trial to a venue far away from the war zone formerly known as Minneapolis.

This supposes that there are no Whites who will stand up against blm threats--I believe there are many,though void dire may eliminate a large percentage.I'd like to think in a historic case like this one,the proper verdict will be issued.

George Parry has another article ( at his Knowledge is Good site on how the Sean Schellenberger murder was "tanked" by Soros DA Larry Krasner.

How is it even thought to be possible that the cop can EVER get a fair trial? At least a change of venue is in order.

And if acquittal, then watch out. The whole country is going to blow.
