Jury selection continues in the trial of Derek Chauvin Monday | USA TODAY 1


Jury selection was scheduled to resume at 9 a.m. ET Monday. The judge has set aside at least three weeks for jury selection. Opening statements are scheduled no sooner than March 29.


The court, for hours, heard from more potential jurors, with both Chauvin's attorney and prosecutors questioning them about their knowledge of the case, the protests and Floyd's death. Jurors faced a battery of questions about whether they could set aside any existing opinions to serve impartially.

    Hes gonna be let go! And I’m glad he will be! Fentynal kills especially when you have 3 times the lethal amount in your body and meth lmao.

    • @ShxdowX George’s last arrest was two decades ago for having drugs on him how does that justify his death

    • Best example of amerikkka

    • @ShxdowX Remember drinking and driving is a crime too! To say all criminals deserves this, is just wrong in so many ways! One day when u find out that one of ur family’s or close friend has a criminal record. U will change ur tone!

    I call the principal owners of the El Nuevo Rodeo night club to the stand

  4. Move the trial to Nisswa, Minnesota. The home turf of Senator Paul Gazelka.

  5. There will not be a fair trial in that disgusting state. Soo, transparent. They want to lynch this officer without a just trial, so ironic but expected. It is this attitude that makes people blind to the cause. Their is no sign of good character from the higher ups to those walking the streets with their lynch signs, yet not being able to see the irony, no desire to to be a leader of human decency that others can look at and see a respectable, civil society awaiting justice. Just manipulation, greed, rage, judgement. Same old thing. Sad

  6. So when is the actual trial going to start?

  7. Juror 52 sounds like a good guy.

  11. Anxiety?! Are you serious?! Maybe all the drugs in his system caused all those side effects. Ridiculous.

    • The autopsy literally proved his death was a homicide! You white supremisists just find everything to go against black people, don’t you?

    • hE RESISTED ARREST AND THEY’RE TRYING TO PLAY IT OFF AS A MENTAL HEALTH ISSUE. I’m sorry if he’s clausterphobic, but so am I, and I would sit in the back of a cop car if I was asked to. He was fine sitting inside his own car? If these jurors say anything that points to themselves not believing in everything about BLM, they seem to be excused. Common sense things, like how they go about protesting with looting and destruction. How is it bad if someone believes BLM goes about trying to fix their issues wrong. This arrest and what this cop did likely had nothing to do with race. The same thing happened to a white man in Tx two years prior. I think it’s an issue of a bad cop taking advantage of his authority, 17% of US population is black, and there are more black people in prison than white. When this is true, the ODDS of something like this happening to a black man are exponential. He also had a mixture of strong narcotics in his system, which likely contributed to a heart attack, or something. I’m sure the knee in the neck didn’t help, but I don’t believe he died by having his airway blocked, or his neck broken, and medical records can prove that.
