the trial has already become a farce...

Quote:
BELLEFONTE, Pa. -- A jury was selected Wednesday in the child molestation scandal that brought down Joe Paterno, and the makeup of the panel left no doubt this is Penn State country.

The seven women and five men who will hear opening statements on Monday in the case against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky include an engineering administrative assistant at Penn State, a dance teacher in the school's continuing education program and a professor who has been on the faculty for 24 years.

They also include a Penn State senior, a retired soil sciences professor with 37 years at the university, a man with bachelor's and master's degrees from the school and a woman who's been a football season ticket holder since the 1970s.

One of four alternate jurors was selected Wednesday, a woman in her 30s who graduated from Penn State in 2007 with a degree in human development. Three more alternates remain to be picked, and a prosecutor said he thought those selections could be finished Wednesday afternoon.

Full disclosure: while I am a 21-year-old Penn State senior who is a white male and has worked with the athletic department, I am not, in fact, juror number seven.

Liar.

And on a side, semi-related note, I served Jury duty last week... and my experience makes me highly unsurprised that any trial, let alone this one, is a sham.

How did this trial not get moved to a town composed of less than 99% Penn State affiliates?

Lawyerin' Joe Amendola specifically requested the trial remain in Centre County. God knows why.

Hold on. I thought the idea was that it would not give Sandusky a fair trial. Do people actually think Penn State associated people would give him the benefit of the doubt? This jury makes it a virtual lock that he is guilty unless the prosecution royally fucks up. People at Penn State view Sandusky as the reason everything that was once good is now bad.

Mikal is rooting for the victims and Sandusky and the jurors and both lawyers and the judge and the court stenographer all to win.
