HOW ARE THE
JURY POOLS SELECTED?
The above is from a LNP story in July by Jeff Hawkes on the retirement of Judge Lawrence Stengel (click here for, “Judge Lawrence Stengel to retire after career that gave ‘everyone a fair shake’ “).
How is it “possible” that there are still all white juries in Lancaster County (see yesterday’s post on the trial of Darrall Fields) and why isn’t LNP questioning it and demanding answers?
There will be more on this and other questions that should be answered about Fields’ trial tomorrow.
A horrific murder in Lancaster and the arrest of the Middletown Police Chief for attempted rape and other charges have overshadowed other news today.
A SIMPLE SOLUTION?
From a Letter to the Editor in today’s LNP print edition and online here. The author, Randy L. Herman, was a police officer for 41 years until he retired in 2016.
I’m sure minorities everywhere will appreciate that “simple solution,” Mr. Herman! Simply unbelievable! Who cares about equal justice for all?
