  •  Well said, sir. (0+ / 0-)

    I would only counter with the fact that nowhere is there any mention that contact with the jury was restricted only to friends and family. That being said, I highly doubt that just anybody was allowed to chat them up, but many of their visits were unsupervised in public places. I find it very difficult to believe that the trial was never brought up under any circumstances. It's not the fact that they were allowed visitation that is problematic, so much as the lack of supervision in those visits and the nonchalance surrounding that decision, especially given the high-profile nature of the case. This is symptomatic of a justice system that does not take legal issues with people of color seriously.
