Can I join in? *grabs Big-Arse-Gun ™*
Yes, please do. I'm thinking of the pain I could cause to Sneddon.

Hang in there, guys. If there's one thing that we've learned since this inception, is that bad times don't last forever.

Crazy as it may sound right now, but this may very well backfire in the prosecution's face. Just like every other decision that the DA has made.

*Karma*
Well said HeavenSent :)

its by the lawyers!!!!! :hitting

I think the prosecution usually goes first, followed by the defense, and then the prosecution again if they wish.

okay I'm really pissed right now. This jury selection is complete bullshit! First they eliminate 9 jurors for stupid reasons, and then they just pick the jury in 10 minutes which is dominantly white. This is ****ed up! Also NOTHING has been said about these new leaks, and it's happened TWICE! why the hell would Melville just ignore it? I can only hope there is a mistrial and that this bullshit won't last much longer.
sorry I had to get that off my chest. :tickingti

Well I'll be damned! Time wise, opening statements starting as soon as next week is no real surprise..the only surprise here is how FAST they actually picked the jury, based on how little time they were actually in court. Five DAYS as opposed to the expected four-five WEEKS! THAT's what took me aback when I found all this out just a little while ago. And no African-Americans AT ALL? While I was never one to believe that this "case" is (soley, at least) about Michael's race, I do not like the fact that African-Americans are completely absent from the jury, either. It just doesn't feel right...

I'm not so sure if I like this set up, folks.. :uh_uh:

Pray for Michael....

I'm not too clued up on any legal system, let alone Americas so.. could someone fill me in on what this means?
I think this means, the alternate Jurors. Like, if one can't make it...then they call in one of the alternates...am I right? :cryptic

Trace Gallagher report
-says jurors range in age from 20 - 79 years old
-4 hispanics
-the 2 remaining African Americans were thrown off by the prosecution (via their challenges)
-says the remaining black woman, before she was kicked off by the prosecution, said the media and Sneddon was biased
-says Mike was "very animated" and agreeing with her when she was being questioned
-says the black woman remarked "Do you know what it's like to be a black woman in this county?"
