Apr 19 - Judge says Maxine Waters’ comments could lead to whole case ‘being overturned’
 

 
The judge in Derek Chauvin’s murder trial slammed Rep. Maxine Waters’ call for protesters to “get confrontational” if the ex-cop is cleared in the death of George Floyd on Monday — saying it could lead to the whole case “being overturned.”

The stunning remarks came as the city of Minneapolis braces for unrest while the jury deliberates in the case.

Defense attorney Eric Nelson had urged Hennepin County District Judge Peter Cahill to declare a mistrial, arguing that “an elected official, US Congressperson” made statements that “I think are reasonably interpreted to be threats against the sanctity of the jury process” and had the effect of “threatening and intimidating the jury.”

Cahill denied the motion but told Nelson, [B] “I’ll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned.”[\B]

“This goes back to what I’ve been saying from the beginning,” the judge fumed. “I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch and our function.”

“I think if they want to give their opinion they should do so in a respectful and in a manner that is consistent with their oath to the Constitution to respect a co-equal branch of government,” he said. “Their failure to do so, I think, is abhorrent, but I don’t think it’s prejudiced us with additional material that would prejudice this jury.”

Cahill added: “a Congresswoman’s opinion really doesn’t matter a whole lot.”

The jury had just begun deliberating on murder and manslaughter charges in Floyd’s May 25 death.

Waters has drawn fierce criticism for telling protesters who were demonstrating last week’s fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright in neighboring Brooklyn Center that they should “stay in the streets.”

“We’ve got to stay in the streets, and we’ve got to demand justice,” Waters, of California, told a crowd of demonstrators in Brooklyn Center on Sunday.

“I hope we get a verdict that says, guilty, guilty, guilty,” she said of the Chauvin trial. “And if we don’t, we cannot go away. We’ve got to stay on the street.”

“We get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational,” Waters added. “We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Monday that she didn’t believe Wanters needed to apologize for the controversial comments.

“Maxine talked about confrontation in the manner of the civil rights movement,” Pelosi said.

“I myself think we should take our lead from the George Floyd family,” she said. “They’ve handled this with great dignity and no ambiguity or lack of misinterpretation by the other side.”

“No, no,” Pelosi added. “I don’t think she should apologize.”

That judge is a coward.

I mean, where were these people When Trump and some conservatives were saying worse, much worse. This is just a cop out. They already set the standards when they let those crazy Republicans get away with their rhetoric. fu*k these hypocrites.

Oh hell no

Since the cops defense liked using definitions of what sh*t means.....

Confrontational means to be argumentative.

I thought we had the freedom of speech...

right looking for anyway possible to let chauvin walk.

i knew he was on bs when he denied prosecution bringing up fact that chauvin was on a kids bank who said he couldn't breathe and lost consciousness. yet he let them bring up an old floyd arrest strictly to show how floyd may act on drugs. smh

That’s not cool at all. First, it doesn’t help the cause. Secondly, if it was wrong for Trump to do what he did back in January, she’s as wrong for inciting violence and people getting k*lled over her words. Ultimately, I get what she’s saying but this is not going to end well when pushing this kind of agenda.

Lol y’all don’t wanna know what real LA n*ggas think about Maxine Waters bruh.

It’s a catch 22 watching her get national recognition the last few years knowing the foul sh*t she’s done to people in this community the last 30+ years.

Like bruh it’s honestly tough not to pull her card even when she does something positive out here. That’s how little she’s done for Watts.

That was stupid of her and she should know better. In fact, I know she knew better this lady been in politics for way too long. who sent her to do this knowing it could sway the jury and cause a mistrial? You risk it all for what some punk a*s brownie points? I’m not buying it. So obvious they want mfs to wild out like they did all last summer. It dont take much critical thinking to see thru this bullsh*t anybody in her position with a brain would NEVER risk the outcome of a case so delicate in this manner tf
