    The multiracial society DOES NOT WORK.

    Mistrial blamed on one juror | freep.com | Detroit Free Press

    And, according to several jurors who spoke out angrily on the steps of the federal courthouse in Detroit after a mistrial was declared Wednesday in Riddle's public corruption trial, he has only one juror to thank -- Angela Woods of Auburn Hills.

    About a half-dozen of the 12-member panel lobbed extraordinary public accusations of racism against Woods, the sole African American on the jury, saying that she hijacked the process by being combative and confrontational, often refusing to review evidence and discuss possible verdicts.

    "We tried for five days. We were civil. If you tried to say anything, she would lash out at you," juror Margaret Elyakin of Ann Arbor said. "If you can't find this man guilty, you can't find anyone guilty. Unfortunately, it came down to race."

    I've seen this firsthand while serving on a jury. A black lady sided with the black guy at every turn despite overwhelming evidence. It's just :cuckoo:.

    Funny, near the end they mention it is said that the US Attorney's door never closes...

    Then soon after asks "Will Riddle open that door"?
    Funny




    Yah, many blacks are not shy about these situations either. It's like a gang mentality for them, us vs. them. Severe peer pressure plays a major part. From my experience, many want to play ball but tend to feel obligations to their race.

    But it's not racism or anything like that....:lol:

    Reminds me of the black power fist after the Simpson trial...

    Cochran has never defended his clients. He has always put 'the system' on trial. Every singe 'defense' is the same: the evil White System/COINTELPRO/The FBI/LAPD conspired to set up an innocent black man.

    And blacks fall all over themselves over it, panting and pissing all over the place like exited puppies. Especially the dark ones, with subsaharan blood (average IQ:70; a White man with an IQ of 70 is recognized as mentally retarded and cannot serve on a jury).

    Wow....WJ find another excuse to whine. Does anyone know if his dumbass has boycotted Oreo cookies? He's so black and white focused he probably has claimed color television was the first tv ever designed but the Librual Diversity Police forced all tv sets to be made in black and white to help socially train people.

    All white juries have already proven to be a failure to the justice system so what the hell is WJ proposing now, that all blacks not be jurors in a justice system that disproportionately locks up black people?

    It just shows that racism isn't exclusive to any one race.

    I think the problem started during deposition of the jury. If she lied while being questioned about her feelings about the defendant's race they should have been able to catch it.

    He's not proposing anything. He just wanted an excuse to whine again.

    Has it occurred to you to stop committing a disproportionate amount of crime?

    I don't mind so much what the jurist did. She's only a product of false stereotypes.

    Dickheads like Al Sharpton and Rev. Wright put the notion in her head in the first place.

    Many feel that blacks are constantly being picked on by whites and justice is unfair.

    Obama even said this when he claimed that his Supreme Court pick was gonna bring justice to the court....probably because she was hispanic. Too bad the GOP picked Clarance Thomas. If he had been picked by a Democrat president he would have said he already had justice.
