Left-wing right-wing star Alan Dershowitz said the US Supreme Court should and could overturn the unfair conviction of Derek Chauvin in the death of drug addict George Floyd.
A “sword of Damocles” hung over the jury, Dershowitz told Newsmax. “They feared for their lives and the safety of their families, if not the safety of Americans in cities, which would be sure to explode if the verdict were not guilty.” Dershowitz blamed radical leftists like Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) And racing driver Al Sharpton for the atmosphere of intimidation.
“I think it should be reversed on appeal,” Dershowitz said.
But he didn’t stop there. He also said the judge had failed to perform his duty to confiscate the jury and protect it from outside pressure. And he will likely sentence chauvin to more time than such a defendant would normally receive. The reason: fear of the mob again.
The left political agenda of identity politics, Dershowitz said, has corrupted the criminal justice system.
