No equal protection
The names of the jurors in the Derek Chauvin case were never revealed, for their protection.
Why were the name, age and photograph of the Black teen who took the incriminating nine-minute video of Chauvin kneeling on George Floyd’s neck prominently mentioned/displayed in the media? Doesn’t a Black girl deserve the same protection from (probably white) protestors? Or aren’t those angered by the convictions (also probably white) considered dangerous to her safety?
A double standard here?
