I don’t fault the prosecution in this case for going with an all female jury. They knew from the start they had no case. Their only hope was a completely emotional verdict based on feeling sorry for the mother, and decided they were more likely to get it from women. Just didn’t work out.
Isn’t that what we always say about liberals, that they “feel” instead of “think”?
The prosecution was hoping for an emotional verdict with a little bias against the adult and sympathy for the boy aggressor.
