Thanks, good explanation. It would be just if the jury reflects the make up of the county. I think the county is 10-12% black ( per a previous post of HBs )
That would indicate statistically there would be 0 or 1 black juror. I think the chances of 0 black jurors is zero! And I think it is 50-50 that there will be either 1 black juror or more on the jury. That should satisfy the PC police. If the jury has more than 2 black jurors, O'Meara should be disbarred.
As I've said from the get go, I think this sad drama is more about present day racial issues than the killing of Trayvon.
PS: I just saw a news flash that said the jury has been selected. All 6 are female and 1 juror is black. This seems surprisingly reasonable. I am surprised that both sides were OK with an all female jury. More so with O'Meara than with the prosecution. But we shall see what happens.Edited by rnoldh - 6/20/13 at 12:17pm
