Elie Mystal, an editor and contributor to the law blog Above The Law, who is a lawyer himself wrote a recent blog telling blacks that if they appear on a jury that they should vote not guilty regardless of how much evidence is presented. He stresses that this goes especially for any black person who kills a white person especially a white man. In a previous article, Mystal wrote about the death of Walter Scott. He left out a key fact and lied about another one.
Mystal claims that the shooting was racially motivated. Meet the racist who shot him for being black:
Officer Brentley Vinson
Mystal describes Walter Scott as an unarmed black man. There is photographic evidence that Scott did indeed have a gun. Normally, I would say the officer was innocent except for the fact that Scott was shot 5 times in the back. The case ended in a mistrial because there was at least one hold out for not guilty. How ironic would it be if the hold out was a black following Mystal’s advice and voted not guilty because the defendant was black?
Mystal justified this lawlessness by claiming that “African-Americans live in a world where the police can murder us and get away with it.”
“There is no justice for black people. And yet violently revolting against the system will get us nowhere,” he added.
This, Mystal says, is reason enough to work against the legal system in all areas.
Maybe it’s time for black people to use the same tool white people have been using to defy a system they do not consent to: jury nullification. White juries regularly refuse to convict or indict cops for murder. White juries refuse to convict vigilantes who murder black children. White juries refuse to convict other white people for property crimes. White juries act like the law is just a guideline and their personal morality (or lack thereof) should be controlling.
“Maybe it’s time minorities got in the game?” Mystal added.
The legal analyst and lawyer went on to insist that black jurors should refuse to vote to convict any black suspect no matter the crime, including murder, if it is committed against a white person, especially a white man.
Mystal went on to say it’s the only way to fix the system:
Murder? … what the hell do you think is happening to black people out here? What the hell do you think we’re complaining about when your cops shoot us or choke us? Acquit. Don’t throw “murder” at me like it’s some kind of moral fault line where the risk of letting one go is too great. Black people ARE BEING MURDERED, and the system isn’t doing a damn thing to hold their killers accountable. Sorry I’m not sorry if this protest idea would put the shoe on the other foot for a change.
More from Breitbart:
“White people would lose their s**t, that’s what would happen,” Mystal continues in his screed. “Suddenly, The New York Times would pull reporters off the ‘understanding Trump voters’ beat and you’d start seeing stories like ‘Hmm… It Appears Negros Have Some Grievances Too.’”
“White juries are using jury nullification to protect cops,” Mystal proclaims in conclusion. “But the door swings both ways. It’s time for us to push back. Civil disobedience, when used in a targeted fashion, is a powerful force.”
In the end, as far as Elie Mystal is concerned, a few murdered white people who never get justice and their killers allowed to walk free, is a small price to pay to satisfy the Black Lives Matter agenda.
