    • Hello Nan. It is a biased system designed to give the government/ prosecutor far more power than the defendant. Especially when POC are automatically thought to be guilty. In the time he was found guilty it is possible an all white jury was predisposed to not only assume his guilt but be unwilling to take the time to care about his situation at all. Pronounce him guilty and be done with it, feel good and go home. I really think the US needs a professional jury system where the jurors have been vetted and are skilled at what they do. So many people hate jury duty enough to skew the jury pool. Notice he was pardoned after it was found he was found to be wrongly convicted. Not declared innocent and let go but pardoned which includes an automatic admitting of guilt to accept. It is another way of keeping the POC down even if he was never guilty. Hugs
