The juror was identified as 31-year-old Brandon Mitchell who comes from a black race where he poses with a few of his friends wearing the shirt that has an image of Martin Luther King Jr printed. This includes the phrases, ‘Get your knee off our neck’ as well as ‘Black Lives Matter.’ In the same way, he is observed wearing a hat that has ‘black lives matter’ printed across the front.
Many people are raising questions regarding the juror’s stance regarding the entire situation, possibly hinting at how impartiality could have been instilled into the verdict.
Surprisingly, the first person from the jury who actually went out and publicly commented on the conviction of the former police officer for brutally murdering George Floyd was also coincidentally Mitchell.
On the other hand, Mitchell made his way for an interview with Star Tribune recently where he spoke about how that controversial image was actually from a rally that he attended in Washington DC during the summer of last year. It was held in honor of Martin Luther King Junior’s famous speech of 1963 which was, ‘I have a dream.’
In addition, the black juror spoke about how it was in fact his own uncle that went about posting the image to social media. “The DC march had absolutely nothing to do with the trial,” he confirmed.
“It was actually directly related to the MLK March towards Washington from the 60’s era,” he mentioned to the newspaper.
Mitchell says he took it as an opportunity to head to the state capital, the opportunity to be surrounded by thousands of black people, as well as a great opportunity to be an integral part of something in general.
