‘Enemy of the People’: Minneapolis Star-Tribune Publishes Biographical Information of Derek Chauvin Trial Jurors

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune is being blasted online for releasing biographical information of all twelve jurors plus two alternates in the Derek Chauvin trial in the killing of George Floyd. 

Without naming the jurors, reporters Paul Walsh and Hannah Sayle on Tuesday published enough details about their lives, internet sleuths and local snoops may be able to figure out who they are. 

Walsh is a general assignment reporter at the Star-Tribune, and Sayle is a digital features editor. Online critics are accusing the paper of trying to intimidate the jurors into reaching a guilty verdict.

*****

And you wonder why they voted guilty - they didn't want their homes burned, family harassed or careers ruined.

  1. Yeah, sad comment on society. Trial didn't matter. Evidence didn't matter. If they didn't convict, America would have burned, and they would be hunted down.

  2. Get used to it. It's the American just-a-laugh Justice system 21st century style.

  3. Judge should have declared a mistrial and dropped all charges.

  4. When the shoe is on the other foot not just the toe, as in 1-6-21 there will be huge tears. That's why they want to take what's left of the 2A

  5. All else about this case being equal, would they have had this kangaroo court if Chauvin was black?

  6. I was listening to the "Jessie Kelly" show and he said that he will DOX any journalist who does this.

    YOU GO MAN!

      Ever notice how it's 'all in good fun' until THEIR people start getting doxxed, shot, spied on, etc.?

    2. Myself, I would do more than DOX the "journalist."

      And I would gladly do the time after, knowing that there was an entire family bloodline exterminated, and every single news media would consider very carefully if the next one they DOX is also a psychopath.

    3. You hardly qualify as one, even with your sheepish attempt at sounding mean. However, you make excellent point. If everyone reading this blog would take 2 rounds and make them useful, tomorrow would be a peaceful day.

  7. It's actually a pretty good argument you can make next time you're called for jury duty. The same one the killer cops use: Because of possible overzealous media attention, I fear for my life, so I cannot be seated on this jury.

  8. I'm not understanding something here, if one is convicted of 2nd degree murder, a more serious charge than 3rd degree and manslaughter, why wouldn't the lesser charges be dropped? Isn't that double jeopardy? If the intent of the prosecution to convict on all 3 in order to add additional years to a sentence, would it not be cruel and unusual punishment? 2nd degree implies intent, manslaughter is unintentional. You can convict on one but not the other. Am I barking up the wrong tree here? Perhaps a lawyer with criminal experience can shed a little light on these questions?

    1. IOW, how can one be guilty of both purposeful AND accidental......

      This alone tells you what happened...... also seems to support the thought that the media are now complicit and therefore should be held accountable....

    2. If one conviction is overturned on appeal, the other guilty findings may hold. State hedging their bets.

  9. This is why they found Chauvin guilty. Media openly threatened to dox them if they found him not guilty.

  10. The jurors probably remembered all the rioting after the murderer O.J. Simpson was ruled not guilty.
    Oh wait , that never happened.

  12. Now the goal is to hold up the appeals process, get Chauvin in prison where he can be "taken care of" (ruled a suicide of course). Because sooner or later Chauvin is going to get into a court where someone actually understands the law and he's gotten get sprung.

    Can't have that.

  13. Lohud a Gannettt newspaper in Westchester, N.Y. outed Gun Owners several years ago. They ran their names and addresses in the paper.

    They refused to stop doing it, finally gun owners started DOXing their corporate owners and reporters.......
    That got their attention!

  14. I saw that AOC said that even with the guilty verdict, justice was not done. Only when our nation cared as much about health care, etc. as they do about military spending, will justice be served.
    When I see these congressional idiots say such stupid things, it only tells me how ignorant the people in their districts are. I.E. Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, UpChuck Schumer, et al.

    1. During an interrogation of a US Navy admiral, Representative hank 'Guam will capsize' johnson insisted too many US Marines will capsize the island.

      Using his superior intelligence to further intimidate the admiral, Representative johnson mentions the dimensions of the island.

  15. In the event of an acquittal, this was battle preparation. The street troops may not be much but the "leadership" was thinking ahead.

    Make them live up to their own rules.

  16. If Floyd was white, where would there be headlines?
    Nowhere.

  17. That was so the protected class would know who to hale and celebrate. They would have done it either way for the opposite.

  18. They'll burn in Hell, so bad to destroy the life of a man who opposed and stopped the criminal!
    Being late for few minutes, they would have found a dead, drug poisoned clown.
