Is the defense's premise that hispanic jurors will be more sympathetic to illegal alien, gang member, rapist?!!! Is that the accepted norm in the hispanic culture that we Americans don't comprehend? Are we racist for refusing to understand this logic?

I don't know how it is done in DC, but I do know that a lot of jurors are pulled from voter registration. Maybe the problem is that hispanics don't vote. I have heard this from other places as well. Take heed Obama, while you are cracking your a** for illegal aliens, it is possible that this huge voting block that you are trying to form won't vote at all. Tisk Tisk I have also heard that those hispanics who will vote have always voted...mostly repub. Ha!

What a crock of shit. This murderer's lawyers think that having more Hispanics on the jury will level the playing field. HELLOOOOOO. MURDER IS MURDER, in any race or country. The jury deliberates ON THE EVIDENCE, NOT ON RACE.

What idiots.
