No black women or Jews...

Ex-prosecutor says he kept Jews off juries
California Supreme Court to review capital case


SAN JOSE, California (AP) -- A former prosecutor's claim that he conspired with a judge to keep Jewish jurors off a death penalty case will be the focus of a court hearing scheduled for Tuesday.

I was a police officer in a small, rather Mayberry-style Los Angeles county city, adjacent to LAX...

Up until the early 1960's, there was a rather LARGE, CONSPICUOUS sign at the "main road into town" announcing..

"NO JEWS OR BLACKS AFTER 6 p.m."

Thankfully, I started work there in 1970 and that sign was long gone but its history and reputation as a having an aggressive, no-nonsense pro-police attitude still remains...

For any of your Redd Foxx buffs, now you can understand his comments about "El Segundo"....

"No Jew would vote to send a defendant to the gas chamber," Quatman alleges the judge, who was himself of Jewish descent, told him.
You can exempt any juror (regardless of race, religion or ethnicity) if they reject the death penalty.

Something tells me Quatman is after something else.......

That's not what the statement said. It didn't say he would eliminate anyone who opposed the death penalty. It was based on race before political belief.

What would that be?

I know what Quatman is saying, it just doesn't make sense. Why say "I'm excluding Jews" from a jury to get rid of opposition to the death penalty when Quatman can exclude anyone to get rid of opposition to the death penalty?

I grew up in that area. I know what you're talking about...there are a lot of young skins in the South Bay today. That's why my brother and his his Jewish bestfriend started the Hawthorne Gutter Punks....
