(ReliableNews.org) – The “rule of law” is the guiding principle behind America’s legal system. It means that no one is above the law, and everyone is treated equally. A jury of one’s peers objectively listens to the case laid out by prosecutors and the defense attorneys’ responses. America saw the rule of law in operation this week with the conclusion of Derek Chauvin’s trial for George Floyd’s death. Or did it?
A Minnesota jury found Chauvin guilty on April 20 on all three charges he faced. Later that evening, Fox News host Tucker Carlson discussed the jury’s verdict. “Can we trust the way this decision was made?” he asked.
Maxine Waters and Biden intimidated the jurors into their verdict.

According to Carlson, the jury’s clear verdict was “Please, don’t hurt us.” As he explained, the jurors “spoke” for many people in the country when they handed down their verdict. Did the jurors fear they had to find Chauvin guilt? Did they take the easy way out?
“Everyone understood perfectly well the consequences of an acquittal,” he said. After 11 months of protests and looting, there was “never” any doubt what would happen if Chauvin walked.
There’s no way of knowing what was in the mind of the jurors. But, Carlson does raise some interesting points to consider. All said and done, was impartial justice served under the unique conditions in this case?
