Subject: RE: BS: Jacko is innocent?
I think the make up of the jury may not be that important.

Given a jury of 12 closet paedophiles, would they:
A) find him guilty, to protect their own images, and because they recognise the signs.
B) free him thinking "there but for the grace of God go I" ?

Given a jury of 12 Bible Belt elders, would they:
A) find him guilty of a heinous crime, and call upon the courts to hand down the heaviest sentence possible
B) free him thinking it is God's territory, "Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave room for the wrath of God; for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay", says the Lord." (Romans 12: 19-21)?
