JS Fuels the Fire

All-white jury clears officers in 4 of 5 charges
That's the Journal-Sentinel's lead on the story of the week.
Not all that long ago, a jury was a jury. They were citizens, drawn by lot. Their racial/sexual/religious/sex-preference/national-origin profile.
But the Journal-Sentinel apparently hopes that they'll have something REALLY big to write about. Maybe they can fan the fire begun last week by someone at the NAACP who spoke of "repercussions" were a not-guilty brought in.
Glad that the JS building is downtown. They'll get to see the results of their "work" up-close and personal.
