Balanced and fair?

Believe it or not, I would have been about the best juror possible on the Derek Chauvin trial.

On one hand, I have zero respect for members of the Blue Line Gang. I want them held totally accountable for everything they do, and I am not deluded into imagining that a badge grants "extra rights".

On the other hand, I don't like the prosecution winning, ever. It always feels like a win for the state. My automatic bias is to declare "not guilty" in every case so as to not reward the state.

In other words, I would be completely hostile to both sides. That's about as balanced as anyone could be.
