Waco cop to head grand jury likely to hear biker cases

District Judge Ralph Strother on Wednesday chose veteran policeman James Head to serve as foreman of the randomly selected 12-member panel that will meet for the next three months.

"We have lawmen who get on jury panels all the time. Who is better qualified in criminal law than somebody who practices it all the time?" Strother told the Waco Tribune-Herald (http://bit.ly/1eKAmup ).

When asked if he had any involvement in the investigation, Head told the newspaper, "Not really." He referred additional questions to the Waco City Attorney's office.

The move comes amid allegations from bikers and their lawyers that authorities have acted unfairly during the investigation. One biker has sued and others have claimed in interviews with The Associated Press that they were wrongfully arrested.

The grand jury created Wednesday is the first to be formed of randomly selected jurors in McClennan County since Texas lawmakers eliminated a controversial statewide "pick-a-pal" system. Under that system, judge-appointed commissioners nominated prospective jurors.

"Not really" = "Yes", for those not used to the practice of testilying. If the true answer was "no", the answer given would have been categorical, not wishy-washy.

And yes, this is what it appears to be, a blatant rigging of the jury by the PD so they can get away with a massacre.
