What if Zimmerman Gets an All White Jury?
The Hutchinson Report News ^ | April 25, 2012 | Earl Ofari Hutchinson

Posted on 04/26/2012 12:00:02 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Accused murderer of Trayvon Martin George Zimmerman almost certainly will eventually face a jury. And what if that jury is all white? A recent Duke University study showed that all white juries in Florida were more likely to convict a black defendant than mixed ethnic juries. Though Zimmerman isn’t black, the defense almost certainly will pull out all stops to make the case that Zimmerman was the real victim and that Martin was the aggressor. In essence this means that jurors will be asked to do a defendant and victim role reversal and put Martin on trial.

The massive barrage of digs, innuendoes, and slanders of Martin’s character and actions that fateful night has been relentless since the killing. So the rule that black defendants inevitably get the short end of the jury stick will be very much in play in the case against Zimmerman. That’s where the danger of an all white jury comes in in the Martin slaying. It could easily happen. Two years ago a Bureau of Justice Statistics report found racial discrimination in jury selection is still rampant, even blatant. A Supreme Court ruling and other court rulings that ban all white or non-black juries have been in far too many cases no more than paper decisions that have had little effect in insuring a diverse jury in cases involving black defendants. The same holds true where blacks have been the victims, and whites or non-blacks the defendants, as is the case with Zimmerman.

The report found that prosecutors and judges in eight Southern states used a litany of dodges, tactics, and legal ploys to outright exclude blacks from juries, or whittle the number of blacks on juries down. In capital cases, some jurisdictions don’t even go through the legal pretense of trying to get a racially balanced jury. In North Carolina at least 26 current death row defendants were sentenced by all-white juries. A new North Carolina state law, the Racial Justice Act, and a recent courageous ruling by an African-American judge to overturn the death sentence of a convicted black murderer under the act drew national attention to the blatant bias in all white jury decided cases.

The report also found that a racially diverse jury weighed evidence and testimony longer and more carefully, brought different perspectives and life experiences to the deliberations, and made fewer factual errors. These are crucial factors in the rare cases where cops are charged with killing young black or Hispanics. A jury with no blacks, composed of mostly older middle class whites, and non-black ethnics, is much more likely to believe the testimony of police and prosecution witnesses than black witnesses, defendants, or even the victims.

Prosecutors have a big task in trying to overcome pro-police attitudes and the negative racial stereotypes. Two Penn State University studies on racial perceptions and stereotypes, one in 2003 and a follow-up study in 2008, found that many whites are likely to associate pictures of blacks with violent crimes, and in some cases where crimes were not committed by blacks they misidentified the perpetrator as an African-American. In three major racially charged cases in past years where blacks were the victims either beaten or killed by white cops Rodney King, Oscar Grant and Sean Bell, defense attorneys depicted all three men as the aggressors who posed a threat to the officers. They played up and exaggerated their run-ins with the law to depict young blacks as crime prone, menacing figures. The idea was to subtly and openly play on the prejudices, stereotypes, and negative beliefs of many white jurors toward young blacks.

Even when the victim has no criminal record and poses no threat to officers, the negative racial typecast still kicks in. This was the case when white jurors acquitted the four New York City cops tried for gunning down African immigrant, Amadou Diallo in 1999. They claimed that they feared for their lives.

Legal experts blame the paucity of blacks on many juries not on deliberate racial discrimination, but to the paltry number of blacks in the jury pool, changing demographics (the city is majority Hispanic, Asian and white), and the failure of blacks to heed jury summons.

This begs the issue. It doesn't much matter how few or how many blacks are in the jury pool, if prosecutors (or defense attorneys when the accused is white and victim black) use a storehouse of challenges, questionnaires, and profiles, to systematically strike blacks from a jury. And sometimes, they don’t even bother with the ploys.

The Dallas Morning News revealed in 2006 that Dallas prosecutors systematically dumped blacks from juries for years. The Supreme Court tossed the conviction of Texas death row inmate Thomas Miller-El based on a Dallas prosecutor's brazen racial jury sanitizing. Yet prosecutors still try to get as many whites, and as few blacks as possible, on juries.

The Zimmerman case jury may be fair and impartial. But to pretend that racial bias doesn't exist in racially charged trials is self-serving and dangerous. His case could again cast an ugly glare on jury race bias.

The left will win no matter what.

Conviction - proves their convictions about racism.

Acquittal - proves their convictions about racism.

Dismissal - proves their convictions about racism.

Riots to follow. The riots will prove their convictions about racism.

Like it or not, the left defines the public debate in this country and most have been conditioned to accept it. How else can you explain how so many have decided this case absent the evidence or facts? How else would you explain the “gravitas” so many assign to Sharpton and Jackson? Men who accomplish nothing beyond advancing themselves!

The stated goals of the original civil rights leaders were achieved, but the left hijacked the movement to consolidate and gain power. It’s all about ideology and has little to do with justice.

If some 17 year old, 180 pound teenager was sitting on my chest pounding the back of my head into concrete and I had a hand gun; Well, there is no doubt about the outcome of that situation. Poor innocent little Trayvon would be pushing up daisies. Putting this man on trial is a complete travesty.

"The left will win no matter what."

I was ten years old and standing on the roof of our house with my father during the Detroit riots watching large swaths of downtown burn. My father had a .455 British Webley strapped to his hip. A little something that he brought back from WWII. Up and down the block, neighbors were sitting on their front porches with various combinations of hunting riffles and shotguns. No rioters ever came to our neighborhood. Instead, they burned out their own sections of town. No surprise there.

After that, all of the white folks moved out of Detroit. You can see the results for yourself. After 35 years of Democratic/Socialists/Exclusively Black Rule, Detroit is done. The greatest industrial city in the history of mankind is now a pitiful shell. This has always been a lesson to me. Thugs, rioters and punks always go for the easy pickings. Keep your powder dry my friends.

We are in the process in this country of “enfranchising” a special rights minority. The Civil Rights Act began the process. The real disenfranchised population and the real minority is the population of white males in America, which has no special statutory protections or any type of “victim” status, because it has been deemed by generations of self- flagellating liberals to be the “oppressor”. America is on its way to being ruled by the twelve percent. This will be the final “reparations” payment. Handing over the reins of authority. The DOJ has sent the signal that black crime and the Black Panthers will not be prosecuted. But that any attack upon a black by a white is ipso facto a “hate crime” and you will be prosecuted for that. If you are a white male you will no longer be allowed to defend yourself in the event you are attacked by a Black. The media refuses to report black on white crime and only reports the reverse, when it occurs as a statistical rarity. We are on our way to becoming South Africa. The chickens are coming home to roost and no jury in America will besmirch Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman is toast because the elites are fearful of a race riot. The fix is already in. And the elites know whites don’t riot. Just like the phony OJ verdict. It kept the buildings from burning. Riot insurance. All the testosterone is on the other side. Has the media mentioned anything recently about the ongoing investigation into the attack, rape and subsequent murder of those two white octogenarians (husband and wife) by a 25-year-old black assailant named Woodfork? Why is that horrendous crime being covered up and ignored by all of the commentators on Fox and all the other networks?

If there is a jury it may indeed be all white. If any prospective black juror is asked if he or she believes George is without a doubt guilty as Hell, they will have to say Hell yes or they will be ostracized by the black community...it's like the OJ thing, if you are black you HAVE to say in public that he is innocent even though you are admitting to being a stupidhead by saying so.

Impanel a jury consisting entirely of Seminole. Remove the whole black/white dynamic from the picture. They're the closest thing you're going to find to his peers there, being native and mixed. Fairly conservative on some matters, too, they've refused to play the mascot grievance game and are quite proud for Florida State to bear their name as a mascot.

The idiot writing this article seems to have an underlying concern that Zimmerman might “escape” being made a sacrifice to “racial justice”. To that end the author is obviously willing to toss out legal procedures such as preemptory challenges all for the sake of “diversity”... when it suits his purpose.

Unless Zimmerman is railroaded into a conviction for second degree murder by a stacked jury, Obama’s unleashed racists are going to do violence against their race enemy - whites, and the country they hate - America.

I was in Washington DC during the riots.

Like you said the rioters burned their own neighborhood down.

Washingtons small Chinatown was only 3 blocks from the burning buildings on 7th. street N.W., not a window was broken in Chinatown.

With 11% of the jury pool black and a random selection of six jurors, the probability of a non-black jury is 0.497, or about half the time. With 12 jurors it's 0.247, or about a quarter of the time.

Of course, the beauty of these pure numbers will be sullied by politics.

During the black riots I was working for Burroughs Corporation, then headquartered in Detroit and while there witnessed one of our secretaries killed by a stray bullet.

My wife and two kids were back in PIttsburgh and when I returned home my wife laid down an edict.

We were moving out of the city. Period.

We bought a home in a neighboring county and never looked back.

The next black riot will see ten of thousands of white people with guns, resisting the rioters.

Thugs, rioters and punks always go for the easy pickings. Keep your powder dry my friends.

One of my most vivid childhood memories is tied to the Baltimore riots. We lived waaaay out beyond the burbs, but a little brawl fired up in our town anyway. A couple stores had fires set and a street was briefly blocked. I didn't see all that because I was just a little kid. What I did see was my grandfather methodically loading M1 carbine mags on the dining room table. A shotgun was staged at each entrance and I was carefully forbidden to even go near them. I was futher forbidden to play outside or on the sun porch. My mom was beside herself because dad was in the National Guard and we thought he had been called up for armed patrol in Baltimore. It was a very scary day. As it turned out, nothing happened. The local nonsense petered out on its own and dad wasn't called up because he was on nuclear duty at the time (Maryland ANG controlled the Baltimore Nike missile bases).

Twenty-five years later I was surveying in Baltimore and the crew drove through a burned-out block. I was shocked when the party chief told me that those buildings has burned in the riots when I was a kid. They were still standing in the ninieties, untouched and uninhabited. It was eerie.

It's amazing how, in cases like this, the heart of the adversarial system is cut out.

The PURPOSE of a jury of Zimmerman's peers IS TO BE FAIR TO ZIMMERMAN.

Trayvon has an advocate in the room, he's called the PROSECUTOR.

The SYSTEM is "unfair to Trayvon", because the BURDEN OF PROOF is on the State, NOT on Zimmerman.

The prosecution gets to pick 6 and there's no way they will allow a jury with no blacks on it . Having said that ,,, this might only lead to a hung jury where other non-minority jurors may vote to acquit . I believe Zim’s best bet is simply with a Judge in lieu of a jury since the prosecutor has over charged him . I'd get Alan Dershewitz as my probono lawyer and he'd win for sure with a judge instead of a jury .
