    That’s what google told me! I was in elementary school and on a field trip and we were at the varsity in Atlanta and I just remember the eruption of celebration that happened there. I really didn’t understand much of the dynamics of the case at the time, but looking back as an adult, it’s very interesting.

    They also wanted a change of venue, so that could be grounds.

    Most schools had distance learning this week because of the verdict watch and fear of riots.

    From the rather fast verdict, seems like the jury didn't squabble but worked well together. JMO

    Well I was way off with my prediction of 7 days in jury deliberation. I guess I owe someone $20 now.

    Considering they’re back so soon, it seems this will likely be a guilty verdict; however, as I mentioned yesterday, iirc in Oscar’s case, who was killed by an Oakland Police Officer, the jury was out for 9 hours and came back with involuntary manslaughter instead of 2nd degree murder.

    I don't see the sequester as an issue unless we get information that a juror or alternate was swayed. IMHO, it is too easy to say that the outside influences were a factor. These folks lived through a summer of protests, riots and violence in their community. If anything, those factors would make the jury prejudiced/fearful. If they took their oath seriously, their work should not be discarded. What is happening now and the climate of the nation don't seem to be worthy of an overturn unless we get information that directly points to an issue.

    Totally agree. There is always reasons to appeal and appeals are almost always filed - we don’t live in a vacuum and the jurors were vetted by both sides. It will be up to an appeals court to decide then. This was not an easy jury to pick and common sense needs to prevail as well.
