Alexander Pring-Wilson who was, to my mind, railroaded into state prison by a politicized, PC, District Attorney's office, was released on bail today to await his second trial. As the Boston Herald reports, several jurors have publicly stated that no testimony about the deceased's violent past would have swayed them, and they are now afraid the case will "become more about race and class than the facts
of the case."
Three points, Former Jurors:
1. You're done; go away.
2. Jurors are supposed to hear the evidence before deciding; you didn't hear the ervidence, so how can you decide?
3. The trial started out about race and class; was conducted about race and class; and will always be about race and class. Only it was the privileged white guy getting screwed. That may be unusual, but it's still wrong.
