This is about race. This majority white jury did not reflect the African-American experience.

This blogger is of the opinion that the prosecution did not put up a strong, spirited case, built for the Trayvon Martin's family. And some of the MSNBC commentators are now saying this.

Commenter notes that felony disenfranchisement bars ex-felons from serving on juries.

It is disappointing that this is the law for people that have already done their time, and that they are banned from serving on juries once they are free and back in society.
