DeSantis suggests Chauvin jury may have been 'scared of what a mob' would do

Source: The Hill

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Tuesday suggested that the jury in the Derek Chauvin trial may have voted to convict the former Minneapolis police officer who was on trial for the killing of George Floyd because it was “scared of what a mob may do.”

During an appearance on Fox News hours after the guilty verdicts were read, host Laura Ingraham played a clip of an unnamed person in New York saying, “If you continue to allow us to be murdered in the streets without justice, we will raise hell in America,” according to the Orlando Sentinel.

In response, DeSantis called the remarks “really, really troubling,” adding “I don’t know what happened with this verdict, but if that’s something that can potentially happen, where you basically have justice made meted out because the jury is scared of what a mob may do? And again I’m not saying that’s what happened here, but that speaker seemed to suggest that that had an impact, that’s completely antithetical to the rule of law.”

DeSantis rushed an "anti-riot" bill through Florida's legislature and signed it Monday. Florida's legislative session ends on April 30 and most bills become effective on July 1, giving all the affected parties a chance to familiarize themselves with changes in the law. DeSantis made sure HB-1 would go into effect immediately on his signature with the obvious intent of having extraordinary repressive and punitive options available to law enforcement in time for the Chauvin verdict.

DeSantis makes no attempt to hide his disappointment at the verdict and lack of "riots" afterward. Actual justice is now being labeled "mob intimidation."

1. That's an incredibly irresponsible statement for a governor to make

And to think so little of the jury system in another state, as if jurors are frightened little incompetent rabbits. From what I've heard jurors take their duty very seriously, it's part of citizenship.

6. DeSantis has demonstrated time and again he is an incredibly irresponsible governor.

Also mean, nasty, corrupt, cruel, racist, a demagogue...the list is far too long. America be warned: if this guy gets to be the 2024 Republican presidential candidate, we're in trouble.

start dropping those stations

publicity will spread it to other unis and pro sports teams and avertisers and the ad industry will start breaking up the monopoly

27. that is the essence of politics the last 30 years

including limbaugh calling mike brown and trayvon martin 'thugs/' on 1500 radio stations, polluting jury pools, while non racist americans had no fucking clue and did nothing.

what makes it not just irresponsible but idiotic is the 'frightened little incompetent rabbits' have no clue they're getting their asses kicked

“I don’t know what happened with this verdict, but if that’s something that can potentially happen, where you basically have justice made meted out because the jury is scared of what a mob may do?"


The jurors should be pissed off that these blowhard GOP mothpieces are demeaning their civic duty. He called them chicken shit cowards when they did their duty.

Racists gotta make sure we know they're still racists.

14. We are NEVER going to Florida because of Dictator DeSantis.

We spent 6 K to 12 K a YEAR ( pre-covid) on vacations in the US since 2000. Florida is not going to see a penny of that.

DeSantis is a dictator in all but name. PAST Time for the Feds to reign him in.

26. The bill was filed on January 6.

DeSantis started pushing it during the George Floyd riots last year. The 60-page bill was filed on January 6- a ploy to (thinly) disguise the racist anti-BLM origin of the legislation.

30. Word is that

there is a loophole in the law that allows for smashing into a racist, monkeyed up politician with covid blood on his hands. After he crumbles the car might back up over him 2 or 3 times. After that the tire might roll over his head until it cracks like a rotten egg, because he is one great big rotten egg. That's the word. Jus' sayin.'

37. "Affirmative defense."

HB 1 provides an affirmative defense available to a defendant in a civil action for personal injury, wrongful death, or property damage if the plaintiff’s injuries or damages were caused because the plaintiff participated in a riot .

As to which charge Chauvin was convicted of that he believes the State did not meet the burden of proof. Go ahead, Ron.. tell us.

Its so clear, all these idiots making these comments were hoping for acquittal and violence. Its all they were hoping for.

36. This is the rights talking point on this

They're all saying it.

That the jurors were terrified not to convict, not only because they thought there would be riots, but that their personal safety was at stake because their identity would be found out eventually.
