African-American editor Elie Mystal runs a top-rated legal website called Above the Law, and on his site the Black Lives Matter supporter and lawyer has made calls to exempt black people of all murder charges if they were committed against white people. Regardless of the extent of the crime, he is calling for “jury nullification” by blacks when on juries in trials that focus on white victims.
“Jury nullification would get white people’s attention. Remember how pissed-off white people were about O.J.? And that was just one dude. White people would notice if black jurors simply refused to play along,” Mystal wrote. Mystal, who also serves as a media pundit for gossip news, wrote the controversial opinion column after a mistrial of a murder case against a white cop who shot a black man.
Some of Mystal’s dangerous opinions involve taking the legal matters to be solved outside of the courtroom, and that white juries should be automatically obligated to assist in cases involving police being charged with assaulting or killing blacks. His written statement can be read below:
“Maybe it’s time minorities got in the game. Black people lucky enough to get on a jury could use that power to acquit any person charged with a crime against white men and white male institutions. It’s not about the race of the defendant, but if the alleged victim is a white guy, or his bank, or his position, or his authority: we could acquit. Assault? Acquit. Burglary? Acquit. Insider trading? Acquit. 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.”
