Trial judge Derek Chauvin warned Maxine Waters’ comment ‘could lead to this entire trial being turned upside down.’


The jury in the trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin Begin to discuss the case late Monday afternoon. But a congresswoman’s comments over the weekend could open the door for the defense to appeal if Chauvin was found guilty of killing George Floyd last year.

Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., Was asked about the trial over the weekend, while she was present with protesters at the Brooklyn Center, Minn., Where Daunte Wright was subjected to a police officer killed last week. “I hope that we will get a verdict of pleading guilty,” she said in comments spread. “And if we don’t, we can’t leave.”

When the reporters asked her what the protesters should do if Chauvin was found innocent in Floyd’s death, she replied: “We have to be on the street. And we have to be more active, we have to face more. We have to make sure they know that we mean business. ”

Chauvin’s lawyer, Eric Nelson, claimed that Waters’s remarks could be viewed as jury threats while arguing over a mistake, describing the congresswoman as “violent threatening behavior. The force involved in this particular case “and claims that Chauvin’s jurisdiction is so pervasive, it is impossible for the jury to be” tainted “by it.

And while Judge Peter Cahill dismissed the offer of abuse, he said this: “I’ll let you know that Congressman Waters might have given you something on your appeal. could turn this whole trial upside down ”.

The judge also urged politicians to continue to comment publicly on Chauvin’s trial in a “disgusting” and “disrespectful” manner.

“I wish elected officials would stop talking about the case, especially in a way that disrespects the rule of law and the judiciary and our functions,” he said, emphasizing “talking.” .

He called on politicians to “respect their shared branch of government,” and called their failure to do so “disgusting.”

But then, he also seemed to contradict himself by saying that he didn’t think Waters had prejudiced jurors in this case. “They have been told not to watch the news, I believe they followed the instructions,” he said. “The opinion of a congresswoman is really not that important,” he concluded, before rejecting the suggestion of a wrong-minded man.

That sparked a lot of questions on social media, where some asked why Waters was disqualified while many other notable people commented publicly on Chauvin’s trial.

Waters are clarified with theGrio that her remarks on “confrontation” were about “confronting the justice system, confronting ongoing policy,” she said, noting that she was “nonviolent”.

“I’m talking about speaking up,” she added. “I am talking about the law. “I’m talking about what elected officials do to take control of their budgets and pass the law.”

The jury of six white and six black or multiracial people was sent out to begin deliberation on Monday after nearly a day of debate ended. Chauvin, 45, was charged with second degree murder, third degree murder and second degree manslaughter. All three charges require the jury to conclude that Chauvin’s actions were “an important causal factor” in Floyd’s death and that his use of force was unreasonable., Associated Press reported.

The most serious crime can be up to 40 years in prison.
