A woman who was an alternate jury member on the Derek Chauvin trial speaks out about her experience sitting on the jury. She didn't know she was an alternate at first, but she could have been called to sit in as needed. She was dismissed as the 12 jury members were sequestered.
Her name is Lisa Christensen and she was interviewed by Lou Raguse of KARE 11 news. Christensen also lives near the Brooklyn Center, where another police shooting had taken place recently. One of her concerns was people coming to her house if the verdict did not go in their favor. She admits being concerned about it. She also describes a time where they were showing her what it's like with pressure on her neck and she says she really felt that part of it.
Part of the interview went like this:

Raguse: Did you want to be a juror?
Christensen: I had mixed feelings. There was a question on the questionnaire about it and I put I did not know. The reason, at that time, was I did not know what the outcome was going to be, so I felt like either way you are going to disappoint one group or the other. I did not want to go through rioting and destruction again and I was concerned about people coming to my house if they were not happy with the verdict.
The part about the neck was in this part of the interview:

Raguse: When it came to the medical testimony, what was it about Dr. Tobin that was so impactful on you?
Christensen: He broke it down to where we could understand it. He had us demonstrate. We were all in the jury touching our necks and we could feel what he was trying to make us feel. What really did it was when he said, "right here at this point was when he (George Floyd) had that seizure and this is where he died."
Raguse: Was that a turning point for you in the trial?
Christensen: It was. I did consider the defense’s points about the enlarged heart, the narrowing of the arteries, the drug use. But regardless, I do not think he would have passed away on that day at that time.Source: kare11
