Knoxville jury selected
David B. wrote last Friday:
The first jury panel has been selected. It consists of seven blacks, four whites, and one Asian. There are five black women, two black men, two white women, two white men, and one Asian man.Regarding the prosecutor assigned to the case, Takisha Fitzgerald, Gary S. writes:
Most likely this choice of prosecutor is rooted in the local D.A.’s desire to avoid any question of racist proclivities among the prosecutariat, but “Takisha Fitzgerald”? Assuming this woman is actually capable of obtaining a guilty verdict against black defendants, will she do so?LA replies:
Yes, we have an accused murderer and torturer named Letalvis being prosecuted by an assistant D.A. named Takisha.
