At least four potential jurors dismissed Monday said they couldn’t be impartial. One said he was “appalled” by the video of the arrest. Another said he was an educator who works with minority families and could not presume Chauvin’s innocence, while another said he feared for his family’s safety.
From what I see the chance of Chauvin getting a fair trial in Minneapolis is remote. A juror who votes to acquit is likely to get doxed and mobs have already demonstrated their willingness to kill and destroy property. Fear of violent retribution is clearly reasonable and local officials have not been willing or able to protect life and property in the past:
By early June, violence in the Twin Cities metropolitan region had resulted in at least 2 deaths, 604 arrests, and upwards of $500 million in damage to approximately 1,500 properties, the second-most destructive period of local unrest in United States history, after the 1992 Los Angeles riots.

My opinion is that having a fair trial in Minneapolis is impossible. If Chauvin is found guilty, is it because only jurors who have already secretly decided to convict are willing to serve?
