Today is the first day of the Trial. It begins at 9am CST.
Jury Selection took 12 days. 12/12 Jurors selected. (7 women, 5 men) 3/3 Alternate Jurors Selected. (2 women, 1 man)
131 Potential Jurors were reviewed. Some dismissed before being reviewed in court. Many reviewed in court. On March 17th, 2 other previously selected jurors were dismissed due to settlement news.
Supreme Court has allowed conviction for BOTH 2nd and 3rd degree murder. Also a conviction for 2nd degree Manslaughter is on the table.
Judge blocked motions from the defense on delays or relocation. Also ruled in favor of the state on a previous arrest in May 2019.
Floyd Family was given a settlement of 27 million dollars which will be paid by the taxpayers of Minneapolis.
The male alternative juror is the 15th juror. If all of the 14 previous jurors show up? Then he will be dismissed (He's pro-cop but passed for for cause.) If not? He's an alternate.
Official Swearing In and Opening Statements is planned for Day 1.
I will be hosting the trial daily until the verdict is read.https://tv.leftypol.org/r/HappeningsviaKlash
