Juror #47

I spent today, all day, in a Clermont County court. I was potential juror #47. Bailiff Brock told us potential jurors, “hurry up and wait.” And wait we did. You readers of this blog know that I have a contemptuous relationship with a certain prosecutor in Hamilton County. Or the black people's persecutor.

I foolishly carried my biases toward the Deters' just-us system (hang a black man in public, before you do it in court)  into Batavia court . They shut me (the only black) down quick with their professionalism and friendliness. Bailiff Brock was very funny. Judge Haddad was—wow! Cute, in a Rahm Emanuel sort of way. Check him out

back blogging on Kirkland case tomorrow.
