National Socialist Democrat Jurors Hang Jury in Edwards Case

Because of the… We got nuthin’.

OK, them’s the rules of the justice system. If a juror or jurors decide that party fanaticism goes before justice, then they can hang the process to get their preferred result, facts and evidence be damned.

It’s just the way it is.

Something to keep in mind for future conservative jurors, though.

Sauce for the goose and all that…

No, we don’t really give a fuck. They picked the rulebook they want to play by, we’ll be happy to comply.

Thatisall.

    In the near future, trials will be unnecessary.

    They can try him again on the counts they hung on. I would recommend that Edwards be “accidentally” exposed to a dose of radiation sufficient to cause his hair to fall out.

    Blotches on the skin would be a nice addition.

    Just to help the next jury focus on the evidence, don’t you know. :em05: :em01:

    Two things ruined me for jury duty. First was hypothesis testing methods in my sadistics class. Yes, I know we are supposed to find “beyond a reasonable doubt”, but what is reasonalbe? If your answer comes out to guilty on a 95% confidence interval, that means that you could be wrong 1 time in 20. when I am fucking around with someone’s life, I need to be more certain than that. Second was Comrade Bubba Clinton. I believe the rule of law applies to everyone, or it applies to no one. Apparently, the US Senate believes that it does not apply to liberal Commucrats, as they did not bother to listen to the evidence of abuse of power in the case of Billy Jeff. The House had him dead to rights, and the Senate let him skate. It was only after he left office, the state of Arkansas disbarred him for his perjury and suborning of perjury. The Senate should have removed him from office.

    I served on a jury once, a civil suit…lasted a month.
    Yes, I was driven crazy by boring testimony, even more so fighting not to fall asleep.
    But there came a time…looking at the defendants, a young couple….
    Make damn sure buddy, this will screw up their entire life….
    And in the end, I said one thing, discovering later it swayed one juror, her vote the same as mine.
    In this country tie goes to the defender…..
    Not guilty………
    Three votes no, eight yes……….
    If appropriate there are other ways of dealing with miscarriages of justice…..
    This was not one of them….
    And I would have to answer to God if I let emotion or belief cast my ballot…for better or for worse.

    angrywebmaster @ #:
    Defense attorneys are also especially reluctant to allow psychologists or current or retired law enforcement officers onto a jury. Gee whiz, I wonder why? 😀

    The guy was bangin’ strange cuntmuffins simultaneously with playing the “Dying Wife” sympathy deck to his supporters and contributors.
    ‘Not against the law of course,, but for honorable folks,,that put’s him in a special category which is completely incompatible with any measure of public trust.

    The law in these cases is so complex that no one can understand. And the DOJ is pretty much incompetent. John Edwards is a real moral douchebag, but the verdict was predictable. The DOJ will probably go after Zimmerman with more vehemence than they did with Edwards, anyway.

    No, DJ, they don’t seat psychologists or leos on juries because they both know when they are being lied to. As you pointed out, defense lawyers hire psychologists to screen jurors by their body language. Gaia forbid that someone who can tell when they are being lied to by a witness actually be allowed on a jury! Why, a goblin might actually be convicted of something.
    I am curious about one thing, DJ. While you addressed the point about hypothesis testing and confidence intervals as applied to juries, why did you not address the fact that the Senate, instead of doing their duty and removing Comrade Bubba from office as they should have, refused to seriously consider the evidence against him. Why did it take the State of Arkansas, after Billy Jeff left office to punish him for perjury, and suborning perjury? Do you believe that those two charges just don’t rise to the level of “high crimes and misdemeanors”?

    Elites almost never get convicted of anything. It’s impressive enough that he even got indicted.

    Personally, I hope they treat him the same way the prosecuter in Texas treated Trent Lott.
