Jury selected to try Michael Jackson

Do you think the ground is being set for an appeal on the basis he did not get "A jury of your peers? How is this man going to get it here?" as stated in the article. That's if he's even convicted.

I am not sure he will actually get a fair trial. We can only blame the media.

But, the jury is indicative of his neighborhood as far as race is concerned.
So that part is fair IMO.

I do not know why he wouldn't get a fair trial, people underestimate blacks, particularly in this case, since at all of Michael's concerts, there has always been more whites than blacks. And he has a very large following of mostly white fans. Because contrary to popular believe, in the OJ trials, blacks did not care if he was guilty or not, the issue was he was being framed, by shotty police work, and Mark Furman. So OJ, was guilty and framed. Even the jurors, did not say he was not guilty, they said it was reasonable doubt, there is a difference and that was the white and black ones.

However is our court system, you cannot send people to jail on lies and of the investigating parties. And with so many blacks getting off death row and rapes, because of DNA, it safe to say, they were framed as well. :spin:
