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


Jury selection was scheduled to resume at 9 a.m. ET Tuesday. 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.

  1. These police officers will never get. Fair trial.

    • @T mo I’m saying there should have never been a trial

    • @Hot Rod I think Chauvin will walk. Most of the general public will not buy whatever the defense is selling. The aftermath will be catastrophic. This just might be the SHTF event that people have been prepping for during the last 3 decades. I am saying THIS IS THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM and most people don’t even see it coming.

    • @T mo but it shouldn’t be that way. He isnt guilty based on the public perception and what might happen

    • @Hot Rod True.

    • @T mo Minneapolis voted Biden. If it burns, too bad.

  2. People need to take it down a few notches or he’s going to get a miss trial or granted new trial.

    • I think Chauvin will walk. The aftermath will be catastrophic. Why does no one see the looming danger? This will be the SHTF event that people have been prepping for decades.

    I just saw a news article that states USA Today “confirmed” the false Washington Post story on Trump to “find the fraud” regarding his conversation with Georgia official in Jan. We just found out WP corrected that false story and admitted “find the fraud” was never stated by Trump. The fact that USA Today either blatantly lied when it said it “confirmed” the story or was too lazy to actually confirm it, is deeply troubling. I will no longer watch or support USA Today *ever* again. I can’t ever trust this news outlet. Shame on you. Your deception to the public will eventually be seen in viewership and ad revenue.

    When the city agreed to pay Floyd’s family 27 million dollars for wrongful death they just sealed the officers fate and proved him guilty, not good

    • This guy broke the law and killed a man with knee on back of neck, and the settlement is a good thing.

      Hope he walks free

    • @Criss Rivera- Spoken like a true subhuman, to know he didn’t listen to two people saying he’s not moving, you’re killing him. He didn’t value life, your not writing as you value life, I hope no one values yours, and this is from someone who values all life. Justice for all and black lives matter.

  6. Juror 63 was trying to hard not to seem like she wanted to be on jury.

  7. I think it was juror 68, he wanted to be on too badly and especially, the last question. lol
    That fool going to rightfully fry. lol

  8. Time to re-evaluate the hero status of flyod. He pulled the same stunt a year before and was warned by paramedics not to swallow drugs or it will kill him next time. Dereck is a prick but he didn’t kill George

    The rich invest their money first into assets instead of purchasing liabilities. Take a wise decision today to buy and invest in cryptocurrency.

  12. It is so childish for the judge and the lawers to have to take off their mask and put it on a few seconds later. Just put it on if you leave your seat or are near somebody else.

  13. After the circus the media put out there it is very hard to conduct a fair trial.
