Several members of the Supreme Court expressed concern over allegations of racial bias in the jury selection system on Wednesday in a case concerning a Mississippi death row inmate who was tried six times for murder.

The case even prompted Justice Clarence Thomas, who rarely speaks during oral arguments, to ask a question.
The inmate, Curtis Flowers, wants his conviction overturned because he argues the prosecutor behind each trial engaged in racial discrimination when striking jurors.
The justices dug into the particulars of the case and the reasons the prosecutor gave for removing jurors -- so-called "peremptory challenges" that allow a lawyer to strike a prospective juror without articulating a specific reason. In 1986, the Supreme Court ruled that such challenges cannot be made on the basis of race.
Justice Samuel Alito referred to what he called the "unusual" and "disturbing history" of the prosecutor who, after the first two trials, struck all 10 prospective black jurors and was cited twice in the previous cases for improperly using race to strike jurors. Alito suggested that the history couldn't be untangled from the sixth sentence that condemned Flowers to death.

Justice Elena Kagan said that the number of questions the prosecutor asked of African-American jurors was "staggering" when compared to the number of questions he asked of white jurors. Justice Sonia Sotomayor seemed incredulous that the prosecutor was allowed to continue trying the case despite what she called his "passion for the case."

Sounds like a bad situation....but maybe they remember the OJ trial and how a jury was more consumed with Mark Furmans use of the N-word than the slaughter of two human beings...


wern't trump and OJ best friends... can you name one person of good standing that was trumps friend? Oliver Stone? The largest serial Pediophile in american history Epstien? Cohen opps not friends anymore..

can you name one that is not in jail of convicted or under invesigation.

The current president and O.J. Simpson were once buddies. Back in the day, Donald Trump and Simpson hung out together, once in 1993 at a chic Manhattan night spot. Ivanka Trump, 12 years old at the time, was there with her father. Simpson was there with his wife, Nicole. Later that year, Simpson was a guest at Trump's lavish second wedding to Marla Maples. No surprise, Trump's friendship with Simpson soured, but in 2008 he told Howard Stern he wanted to cast Simpson in the ninth season of Celebrity Apprentice.

One of our resident racists is crying foul...

seems there was just not enough proof to convict by a single prosecutors opinion. Gee isn't that why trump is not being charged?



you are all for it for a white man but against it for a black man. One has such importance to society and one is in comparison a jaywalking.


Added the guy has been fired and does not seem like many are lining up to hire him. No-one is praising or defending him... His penalty is very clear, plus they noted first time offender and has worked his life in civic issues for betterment of people without pay, and never had a single court judgement against him. His crime did not pay......

whereas trumps crimes have paid off and trump has been in legal trouble with judgments against him his entire life. Even his so called charity was a scam, his university was a fraud, females all over saying he molested them or raped them even children, and on and on.

You obviously don't realize how far back Smollett, and the AG of Illinois has set the work to eliminate racism in our country.

you are a liar, who says I disagree with them in principle? again you do not see any liberal championing him, or even high fiving him, or defending.

again the prosecutor seemed to believe there was not enough evidence to convict....

and he did pay a huge price, was fired and so on. again never a brush with law, never defrauded people and did not have 30 females saying he raped them.

If he was a republican he would have been a white person, he could now be eligible to president or been able too run for senate and so on. No lie is too bad if you are a republican...
