Jury trial


I understand some of today's papers have been calling for jurors in this country to be allowed to speak out about trials in which they have been involved, as they are allowed to in the US.

This is why it's a bad idea: "One juror, Raymond Hultman, told CNN he felt 'Michael Jackson probably has molested boys' but the evidence presented at trial was insufficient to convict him" (from Yahoo News/Reuters).

Right, so that's "we've just found him innocent, but he's probably guilty", then?

It's a truly idiotic system when that can be allowed to happen. Spot on prediction the other day, btw.
