WAITING FOR AN ANSWER! 

     The below email was sent to Amber Strazzo and the city council members today. Tomorrow, I will make phone calls.

*******

A JURY OF ONE’S PEERS?

From the LNP article, “Trial begins for Wilberto Melendez, accused of 2017 homicide in Lancaster, witness intimidation,” (click here).

     It’s a first!  LNP reports on the racial makeup of a jury. The bad news: All the jurors are white. How is this possible? LIP News has been reporting on the all white juries in Lancaster County for years. When will this be investigated? When will something be done about this?
Please check back later today.

    Check out the article about Lancaster County, PA district attorney Craig Stedman on the website Above the Law. It is titled Anatomy of a Prosecutorial Meltdown … and calls him a “trainwreck”. Its good to know Mr. Stedman does not control all of the news media, as much as he would like to. It appears the only good press he gets anymore comes from Fox 43. Which kind of figures…… LMAO

    OK out of the 56 how many were not white and how many were women.

    Also why pick out of 56.

    The mind boggles.
