Potential Jurors in Mehserle Murder Trial Questioned on Oakland, Race, Tasers, Police, and BART
dave id
The questioning of the first two batches of potential jurors based on their answers to a juror questionnaire begins Tuesday, June 8th in Los Angeles Superior Court. If Johannes Mehserle's defense attorney Michael Rains follows through on his threat to treat potential African American jurors aggressively remains to be seen. Certainly, the answers provided for the questionnaire on topics such as racial discrimination, police abuses, and the political environments in Oakland and Los Angeles create an opening for Rains to do so. [Full questionnaire below.]
