I’d be interested to hear what other reporters were thinking in the courtroom. Was there really such surprise? The trial was held in the hometown of some of the police officers, if I remember correctly. They were “protecting their own.” It was a mistake for the prosecutors to let them hold the trial in such a homogenous place. “A jury of isolated white people” is the key phrase as to why.
