What's the judicial system come down to now? What's next, dressing every potential juror in a head to toe costume? Who the hell cares how many Hispanics are on the jury? This is absolutely out of control!

Guandique's attorneys, Santha Sonenberg and Maria Hawilo from the public defenders office, had argued that there is a "statistically significant under-representation of the Hispanic population in the jury pool."

Do you think that is because a large number of Hispanics in D.C. U.S. are illegal?
