Tucker Carlson is now under fire after airing a shocking theory about what he believed was the real reason the jury in the trial Derek Chauvin reached its guilty verdict so quickly.

According to Carlson, the jury came to its verdict due to mass intimidation and media hysteria not because it was a true reflection of justice.

reports:

Tucker Carlson on Tuesday suggested that the jury in the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was pushed to reach a guilty verdict by the possibility of further protests and civil unrest if there was an acquittal.

The Fox News host opened his Tuesday edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” by commenting on the decision by the jury in the Chauvin trial to find the former officer guilty on all charges in the murder of George Floyd.

Carlson began, “The jury in the Derek Chauvin trial came to a unanimous and unequivocal verdict Tuesday afternoon: ‘Please don’t hurt us.’ ”

“The jurors spoke for many in this country; everyone understood perfectly well the consequences of an acquittal in this case,” the conservative TV personality continued. “After nearly a year of burning, looting, and murder by BLM [Black Lives Matter], that was never in doubt.”

The commiecrats are putting the BLM crowd up to bullying people. So what do we do? I’ll defend me and mine. But if God forbid, I’m forced to defend myself from a person of color I’ll be dragged into court. But I’ll do what I have to do.

Suggestion: If you carry a gun, also carry a body camera. The camera needs to be always on, and the gun needs to be equally fully charged.
Part of arming yourself in today’s world includes also knowing the laws, and having a 2A knowledgeable attorney on retainer and speed dial.

  1. Defend yourself.
  2. Film the entire incident, preserve that video.
  3. Clear the area for any possible other threats [criminals travel in packs often, keep safe.
  4. Secure your weapon and prepare to not present a threat to arriving police [they do not know who you are, and you are holding a gun, you are instantly threat #1]
  5. Call EMS for medical aid, Immediately.
  6. Call police and request immediate assistance. [even if the attacker may be dead [you are not a doctor, it’s not for you to determine]. When police arrive, identify yourself, make sure you do not present a threat to them.
  7. “My name is XXX, I called EMS immediately for medical help for the injured person who threatened my life. I was forced to defend myself. I will give you a full statement after my attorney is present. I have already called him/her and he/her will give you a full statement.
  8. SHUT UP.

[I am not an attorney, this is not legal advise, how you choose to life your life is your business. The above are only suggestions you may find helpful is planning ahead.]

Lawyer up right away. Not just before questions, don’t say anything to them. Makes the lawyer’s job a whole lot easier. Also – you should already have who your lawyer will be in mind. You don’t want to figure this out in Walmart’s or Chipotle’s parking lot after something has happened.
