About Me

I describe myself as a sensible liberal. I think if more government programs were well administered, they would be more widely supported. I am a proud member of the Teamsters union I am a big blues music fan. I like Ferrari automobiles

I accept the jury's decision

a few of my thoughts:
I was not there that dark night and have no idea what truly happened
I didn't watch every minute of every day of the trial.
I caught up with evening news coverage.
I missed a lot, I am sure.
Beyond a reasonable doubt is a very high hurdle to get over, with good reason.
I think most people on juries take their responsibilities seriously.
I am hesitant to put much faith in "man in the street" reactions to jury verdicts.
" Not Guilty" and Innocent are not the same thing
I wish more folks prefaced their opinions with a touch of "I could be wrong,but here's what I think..." humility.

We, as a nation, have got to stop turning trials into TV shows.
Every time we do,
it turns into a shitstorm.
