Clueless Jurors

It has been evident since the OJ trial that jurors are not up to the task. They do not understand the concept of reasonable doubt-specifically the definition of reasonable.  It is sad but prosecutors need to dumb down their arguments to the lowest common denominator and judges need to make clear to jurors what their obligations entail.

It was evident to most of us that Blago was a crook without the benefit of tape recordings. I am left to wonder where we’d be if party power brokers hadn’t thrown Paul Vallas under the bus years ago. Illinois has such a long way to go.
