I happened to flick by CNN last night during Larry King, and he had two Robert Blake jurors on live. One of them, a nervous 30-something male with a ponytail, was asked a question about the verdict by King, and instead of answering the question, he held up a cheesey CD case and announced that he was selling
his daily tape-recorded diary of his thoughts during jury deliberations -- and gave the Web address where it was for sale.
It was pathetic, and the lawyers/commentators that were also on the panel spent the next few minutes RIPPING this juror for obviously planning and implimenting a profit-making scheme during the trial.
What does this mean? Maybe nothing, but one might see this and wonder if this jury as a whole conducted itself properly, or whether some of the members allowed a murderer to walk free because of the potential to profit from a national controversy.
Just a thought...
