Anyone want to discuss juror b29?

Her comments, while seemingly sincere, must be devastating to Trayvon's family. From a legal standpoint too it's gut wrenching to hear some of the legal standards that I don't think she fully understood (esp. Regarding intent issue). Anyone else want to comment or are we tired of talking about this case?

  • I feel just as you do. I would like to read the judge's charge to the jury.  Gonna Google it now.

     

     

  • Yet another reason why the "trial by a jury of morons who don't read the newspaper and know absolutely nothing whatsoever about the law" is not a good system.

  • I agree Geraldo. It really is a tough job for prosecutors ( and defense lawyers ) to explain what the legal standards are, especially to non-lawyers.  It's sometimes even confusing for lawyers.  I know some other countries that require a mix of lawyers and non-lawyers on juries for that very reason.
