Racist Jury?

Or stupid or both? The racial overtones of this trial has divided the races immeasurably.

You know I think there should have been 12......men and women.

I think stupid, the good citizens of Florida lives in a backwards state.

The jury gave a not guilty verdict based on the evidence presented. The jury was not racist. The prosecution failed.

you mad bro?

To be on the jury they had to basically know nothing about the case ahead of time. So they were not the type to avail themselves to the news, etc...

I don't think so.

The entire saga from the shooting, so called police investigation, jury selection and trial was a comedy of errors. The deck was stacked unfavorably for any type of real prosecution.

I don't know what is in their hearts.

But they may not have understood the standards of finding guilt for the charge of manslaughter.

I think this jury did a good job of really trying. My husband is totally not racist and he thinks it was self defense. I could not disagree more with him. People just see it diffrently. I would love to hear how this jury came to this decesion.

Please don't put me in a timeout.

What insulting assumptions to make about people you don't even know.

I take pleasure in my 'transformations'. I look quiet and consistent, but few know how many women there are in me.

They were tired and wanted to go home already.

I agree with you and I'm trying to come to terms with it. Although my DH thinks like me. So we're just really frustrated and trying not to feed into each other's emotions on this.

One thing we know for sure, Florida doesn't have very good police departments when it comes to investigating crimes..look at the Casey Anthony trial..and now this one.

Absolutely pitiful.

And going back to the OP their incompetence and ineptitude shouldn't be a reflection of the integrity of the jury.
