    Forgive me for self-quoting, but I find this even more painful seeing Detective Flores. It is so poignant knowing what is about to befall him and totally change his life. <3 to the Flores family.

    I heard it but couldn't understand it. I really trust that Juan had very good reasons for not using a strike and was likely more concerned with saving his strikes for identified DP wafflers--IDK possible lesser of two evils situation, but me, I would have used a strike on this women--she wanted to be on the trial, she cried about DV, and she gave a long winded answer with TMI to a simple question.

    just an FYI....and FWIW....
    I am not sure what qualifies for a 'journalist' these days, but anyone can write for the Examiner . I signed up an account once - when I had a writing bug, but never did anything with it. I am most certainly no journalist. Id take anything from the examiner with a grain of salt (as it tends to be most opinion pieces and little accountability for truth). it can be as reliable as 'before it was news' ;)

    in fact, when i was in school there were a few sources we were NEVER EVER EVER allowed to use as a source : wikipedia and the examiner

    I've wondered that from the beginning of the 17 thing. Jury selection didn't last very long, there was no shortage of potential jurors, and it's not like JSS or the DT were in any hurry to get going or to get the trial over with.

    And when the other jurors sent the question to the judge about #17 Juan again asked JSS to "reconsider" his prior motion to remove her for cause. And again, the judge failed to do so.

    I don't believe it was a hoax... I think it was a JA supporter saying that trying to save face!!

    I read something from a JA supporter on Twitter that said something like, "JA is fine, maybe just a little hungry"

    Yes I did some reading up on her and on the examiner today and found this bit of info. She's just a lady who writes for them in her spare time. There's a sport site that's like that too. You can work your up with them and such and some people do really well with the work and aren't any less legit than full time reporters. But I don't know much about this lady.

    I'm just freaking sick over this. What a complete and utter SNAFU!

    ETA: That means JSS was fully aware J17 was suspect and Juan had issues with her prior to getting the foreman's note during deliberations!

    I don't have a twitter account - the last few weeks are the most I've ever tried to navigate it to see the good stuff, lol. I only made a facebook page a few weeks ago just to join a group there. I'm not a social media kinda gal. Except here now :blushing: and I'm hooked on websleuths.

    I'm a graphic designer who's been ripped off a few times in the past, so I FULLY AGREE WITH AND SUPPORT having and obeying copyright rules and laws!

    My DH likes to say there are only two laws: the laws of man and the laws of physics. The laws of physics can't be denied, but that the reality is people circumvent the laws of man (as we all know too well) but you can't get around the laws of physics. *rereading this sentence and Yeah, it's worded awkwardly, but I hope you understand what I'm trying to say.

    I was just speaking to the realities of internet life :( There's lotsa baduns' out there that do what they want to do regardless of the laws of man, ethics or morals. :(

    OK what about how she says she wouldn't just let anyone around her kids, after she met her second felon on an online dating site .. even though their FATHER is a freaking con .. WTF!! Poor judgement or what .. doesn't all of the above show shocking poor judgement? Isn't part of being on a jury having good judgement?

    I'm so miffed by all this.

    I really hope we'll be able to see video of the next day, and who was struck for what. 10 isn't very many. JM's ability to read jurors is one of his greatest strengths....I was impressed by it from the guilt phase and have been ever since. He saw a problem with 17, so he must have seen bigger problems with 10 other potential jurors.

    I wonder if JSS lost any sleep over not dismissing 17 for cause on October 7th, as JM requested?

    By then it was too late. Really. JA would have won on appeal if 17 had been removed at that point.

    I was going to go back and edit and say that my post was NOT meant to say this writer could not be trusted - as I dont know her at all - but for those who dont know, to take the site in general, with a grain of salt. There is a lot of crap on there ;)

    OMG!!! Even before that, Juan asks the whole group if they are willing to deliberate with the others or if they're going to sit in the corner...

    Yes. And keeping stories straight. I know we're likely biased by what we know now, but she just didn't feel right somehow, and I don't think it's because she couldn't communicate. She wouldn't win any public speaking awards, but she clearly was capable of explaining to other jurors why she thought as she did, felt as she did. She chose not to.

    JSS didn't think 17 was suspect. Or overly emotional. Or incapable of separating her own feelings from the facts of the case, etc. That, IMO, is worse in a sense. She's THAT bad at assessing people,and she's a JUDGE? Eek!
