Cortez Rice, the nephew of the now-deceased George Floyd, has made threats against the jury in the Rittenhouse case if they bring in a verdict he doesn’t like.
I guess criminals just run in that family.
Of course, he should be in prison for making terroristic threats. But, something tells me no one will do a thing to him even if there is a riot when they find Kyle Rittenhouse acted in self-defense.
The trial has been a media maelstrom, to say the least. One of the twenty jurors has already had to have been dismissed in mid-trial. The presiding judge himself has lamented what he called irresponsible media coverage.
It is to be assumed that the members of the jury could possibly come across Rice’s tweets, as they are not currently sequestered.
Rice’s uncle, George Floyd, died in police custody in Minneapolis. An ex-police officer was convicted of second-degree murder in Floyd’s death.
There has been no word on current or future police actions against Rice for making these types of public threats.
I have no faith that the police or the politicians will take no steps to stop Rice and I have even less faith that they will do anything to stop the r5iots that will ensue if they do not get the verdict they want. They don’t care if it was self-defense. The Democrats stood by while BLM did 1 billion dollars worth of damage. How much faith do you have in them?
