George Floyd’s Nephew Jailed For Roughhousing Rittenhouse Jurors
A man who’s been identified as both a relative, close friend, and nephew of the deceased George Floyd was arrested sometime on Thursday for alleged intimidation of jurors assigned to Kyle Rittenhouse’s homicide trial, having previously threatened to publicly identify jurors and expose them to violence and harassment. Cortez Rice was reportedly arrested Monday in accordance with a warrant accusing him of communicating with jurors.
Leftist militants immediately proceeded to raise money for Rice’s bail.
It’s unclear at this time of Rice was arrested for the threats made in his video uploaded during the Rittenhouse trial, or subsequent jury intimidation following Rittenhouse’s acquittal. Considering Rice’s warrant alleged communication with jurors, it’s possible Rice either encouraged or communicated with jurors themselves subsequent to the trial.
Cortez Rice, who has variously been identified as a associate and relative of the armed robbery convict Floyd, previously threatened to identify Rittenhouse jurors during the trial in a social media video.
“I ain’t even gonna name the people that I know that’s up in the Kenosha trial. But it’s cameras in there. It’s definitely cameras up in there. There’s definitely people taking pictures of the juries and everything like that,”“We know what’s going on, so we need the same results, man. We need the same results,” said Rice in the video.
Rice’s threats were followed by a jury intimidation attempt on the part of MSNBC, which tasked an operative to follow a jury bus and photograph the license plates of jurors assigned to the case.
Rice previously filmed himself bragging about entering a building where a Minneapolis-area judge lives, in an act of judicial intimidation in defiance of democracy and an independent judiciary.
Floyd himself has been largely coronated as a God among progressive liberals, with New York City’s government laying down the hammer on a man who dared to protest a Floyd statue in an act of defiance to authoritarian anarcho-tyranny.
