Former police officer Derek Chauvin is seeking a new trial after a jury last month found him guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, second-degree manslaughter and third-degree murder in connection with the death of George Floyd.

“The cumulative effect of the multiple errors in these proceedings deprived Mr. Chauvin of a fair trial, in violation of his constitutional rights,” the filing states.

The denial of a motion for a venue change was one of the various issues raised to argue for a new trial.

“The Court abused its discretion when it failed to sequester the jury for the duration of the trial, or in the least, admonish them to avoid all media, which resulted in jury exposure to prejudicial publicity regarding the trial during the proceedings, as well as jury intimidation and potential fear of retribution among jurors, which violated Mr. Chauvin’s constitutional rights to due process and to a fair trial,” the filing declares.

Barricades, memorials removed from George Floyd Square by Minneapolis officials

Published

on

Minneapolis officials have removed parts of a memorial and cement barricades at the George Floyd Square, the site where Floyd died in May 2020 after a city police officer kneeled on his neck for nearly nine minutes.

City work crews began the process early Thursday morning, in an effort to clear the intersection of Chicago Avenue and 38th Street to help businesses that have blocked off from vehicles and shoppers and in response to crime that has occurred there over roughly the past year.

“Barricades have been removed so that ultimately (the intersection) will be reconnected into the neighborhood and traffic will be able to resume,” city spokeswoman Sarah McKenzie told CNN. “This intersection will never go back to ‘normal.’ This city is really doing everything it can with the community to preserve as many art pieces as possible.”

McKenzie effort was done in coordination with the Agape Movement group.

Minnesota Democratic Gov. Tim Walz said the effort was “community lead.”

Such artifacts as the fist sculpture in the center of the intersection will remain, while other will be put in storage. Some residents reportedly objected the removal of the barricades, setting up makeshift ones, that on Thursday temporarily blocked vehicle traffic again.

Stefanik cosponsors House GOP bill that would ban Black Lives Matter banners at U.S. embassies

Published

on

Fresh off her replacement of Rep. Liz Cheney as House GOP Conference chairwoman, Rep. Elise Stefanik is cosponsoring a bill to prevent U.S. embassies from hoisting “political” flags, which would include the Black Lives Matter banner.

The Stars and Stripes Act is a direct response to Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s recent cable to chiefs of mission, obtained by Foreign Policy, that grants “blanket written authorization” to display such flags and banners. It’s not a requirement but rather an encouragement to display the flags as “appropriate in light of local conditions,” a spokesperson said.

The GOP House bill calls for a ban on flags at diplomatic and consular posts with few exceptions including the U.S. flag, state flags and flags of host countries.

Lead sponsor Rep. Nicole Malliotakis condemned the State Department’s encouragement to fly “inherently political flags that are in no way affiliated” with the U.S. government.
In a press release on the eve of Memorial Day weekend, she said the authorization was “an insult to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our flag and our nation.”

Malliotakis rattled off a list of past and present “partisan political demands and initiatives” by the Black Lives Matter organization, including former President Trump’s impeachment and permanent ban from social media platforms, defunding the police and expelling Republican members of Congress who “voted against the certification of electors” for Arizona and Pennsylvania.

Stefanik got a quote in the press release by her fellow New York congresswoman: saying the U.S. should not fly “the flag of a political organization founded by Marxists.”

California GOP Rep. Darrell Issa, another cosponsor, said the Biden administration has an “emphatic misunderstanding of what this nation represents in every corner of the globe” if it wants to display unrelated banners “when the mood strikes.”

Mississippi GOP Rep. Michael Guest struck a conciliatory tone.

“The death of George Floyd,” the anniversary of which prompted Blinken’s move, “opened important discussions surrounding police reform in the United States,” he said in the press release.

“I encourage every American to exercise their First Amendment right to free speech and to continue civil dialogue around this matter,” Guest continued. “However, these discussions should not be aired out on an international stage.”
