    RG, you're missing one key point here--there is a reasonably good chance that DA Nifong will be able to massage the jury selection process in such a way as to ensure that those self-same bamboozled black folks in Durham WILL BE THE ONES TO DECIDE THE CASE. If they find the rich white boys guilty...WHO WILL LOOK FOOLISH, THEN?

    Here in Polk County we don't get too many black folks in our jury pools...But one day my defendant and I looked up to see 4 of the 13 potential jurors were black...A SHOCK!!

    But a bad one: HE WAS A WHITE BOY, AND THE COP WHO ARRESTED HIM WAS BLACK!! HAAAAAWWWWWW!!

    Oh man, I can only imagine the choice internal cussing that was going on when y'all saw the jury pool. I assume you finessed the situation, though.

    Part of my thinking on "African American Failure on Full Display" was just the scenario you suggest up there in Durham -- and a guilty verdict on these facts will be a failure of remarkable proportions.

    "Oh man, I can only imagine the choice internal cussing that was going on when y'all saw the jury pool. I assume you finessed the situation, though."

    HELL, YEAH, we charged forward, and the jury found him guilty!! How's that for finesse?!

    "Part of my thinking on "African American Failure on Full Display" was just the scenario you suggest up there in Durham -- and a guilty verdict on these facts will be a failure of remarkable proportions."

    In our jurisdiction judges are notoriously harsher than juries, but I suspect that in this context only the brain-deadest of jurists wd be able to avoid either dismissing or gutting the prosecution's case.

    I think the defense is sitting pretty in this one.
