One of the jurors was on Greta VanSustren last night. This is not the same lady who was on ABC news. The one last night on Fox immediately impressed me as being intelligent and quite engaged in the trial, and clearly knew the requirements of the jury as far as their instructions and what they could and couldn't consider. Certainly not a moron.

I think a lot of the people holding up pitch forks and torches fail to consider that if a guilty verdict had been entered, it is just as likely an appeals court would reverse it.

I am opposed to TV cameras in courtrooms. It allows this type of circus to develop. While this was a tragic event, it in no way deserved to be made into a national story. Similar trials and horrible crimes happen every day all across the nation.
