Subject: RE: BS: Jacko is innocent?
Leadfingers, I have served in jurys. The lawyers who select jurys and have the right to reject people on a jury are generally experts in character evaluation. They are trained to be so.

The likelihood of a jury consisting of 12 closet pedophiles or 12 bible belters is virtually nil. On might sneak through, but that's about it.

Jurys are generally made of of very everyday people.
