    *** BREAKING NEWS ***

    LYONS FILES FOR DIVORCE!

         Yesterday, Julie H. Lyons began divorce proceedings against Jeffrey B. Lyons (see below) and click here for “NO COVERAGE OF LYONS WHATSOEVER!” on this site.

    *************

    **   I don’t mean to overkill this point, but I have been writing about all white juries in Lancaster County for (yikes!) 37 years – and nothing has changed! And it is so incredibly important to our justice system! This article is from June of 2017 and the original is here.

    ******

    *    Tirado, wearing a plaid shirt and sweater vest, sat quietly in the courtroom Wednesday morning as attorneys selected eight men and four women for the jury.
    From the January 2018 story by LNP reporter Tom Knapp, “Trial begins for Victor Tirado, accused of 2015 ‘assassination’ of 21-year-old Rahdir Maxton in city parking lot,” (click here).
         LNP actually had a reporter in the courtroom for this trial and I watched every article very carefully. Knapp gave us the breakdown of the jury by men and women but never gave the racial/ethnic breakdown of the jury. Never! Why?

    CAUCASIAN JURY – 2

           This story was on Lancaster Online and this site several days ago and finally made today’s LNP print edition on page A-11. Let’s take a closer look again.

    1. Why? Because he’s Tom Napp and he works for that “news”paper with a staff that more resembles a Norwegian hockey team that the diverse community it doesn’t serve.

    2. So no word on where Lyons is yet?

    3. There is this new entry:

      ACCEPTANCE OF SERVICE OF THE COMPLAINT IN DIVORCE. FILED BY JEFFREY B. LYONS, DEFENDANT.

      But I don’t know if these things can be done by email these days.
