  - Reap what you sow?  Bragi   Jul-11-11 11:45 AM   #7 
  - No, I never said that, did I? But it's hardly surprising given the circumstances.  ClarkUSA   Jul-11-11 11:52 AM   #18

  - Really---  trumad   Jul-11-11 11:45 AM   #8 
  - Not in the way you obviously mean, but in the sense that it's hardly surprising given their verdict.  ClarkUSA   Jul-11-11 11:53 AM   #20 
     - If you're ever falsely accused, please make sure to ask the court to dismiss all rules in your case  Sarah Ibarruri   Jul-11-11 11:56 AM   #29 
        - Do you think O.J. Simpson was "falsely accused" too?  ClarkUSA   Jul-11-11 11:57 AM   #32 
        - I'd rather have jurors deliver non-guilty verdicts that people don't agree with  Warren DeMontague   Jul-11-11 12:00 PM   #38

              - So what? To go from that vague phrase to "lynch mobs" is fucking ridiculous.  ClarkUSA   Jul-11-11 12:04 PM   #45 
                 - "you reap what you sow"- those were YOUR words.  Warren DeMontague   Jul-11-11 12:06 PM   #49 
                    - I explained why I said that but you're conflating my sentiment to imply I approve of "lynch mobs".  ClarkUSA   Jul-11-11 12:09 PM   #57 
                       - My point is, the only thing this juror "sowed" was doing her civic duty.  Warren DeMontague   Jul-11-11 01:40 PM   #120

  - A horrendous sentiment  alcibiades_mystery   Jul-11-11 11:45 AM   #9 
  - Um, why? I wasn't advocating violence, just expressing non-surprise.  ClarkUSA   Jul-11-11 11:54 AM   #24 
     - Heavens! Who could find fault with that?  Warren DeMontague   Jul-11-11 12:02 PM   #42 
        - Are you outraged over the rest of what I said too?  ClarkUSA   Jul-11-11 12:03 PM   #43 
           - I think the whole fucking thing was a circus, and I suspect she was guilty.  Warren DeMontague   Jul-11-11 12:05 PM   #48 
              - I agree with you. Even the sarcastic bit.  ClarkUSA   Jul-11-11 12:15 PM   #70 
  - So you support mob action against jurors with whose verdicts you disapprove?  Fumesucker   Jul-11-11 11:46 AM   #10

  - that's fucked up clark.  dionysus   Jul-11-11 11:47 AM   #12

     - no, that phrase "you reap what you sow"  hfojvt   Jul-11-11 12:07 PM   #52 
     - i think she was guilty, too, but i don't think it's right for ppl to go after the jurors.  dionysus   Jul-11-11 12:20 PM   #81 
        - I never said it was "right for ppl to go after jurors" but I am not surprised this is happening.  ClarkUSA   Jul-11-11 12:23 PM   #84 
  - wow. Heck, why don't we just replace juries with mob or media-meted justice? LMAO  krabigirl   Jul-11-11 11:48 AM   #13 
  - Mmmm...No. But I'd go for the technology of a lie detector over gullible jurors. nt  cyberpj   Jul-11-11 11:51 AM   #16 
  - Once again (God I get tired of explaining). There was no proof 'beyond a reasonable doubt'  Sarah Ibarruri   Jul-11-11 11:51 AM   #17

           - Why don't you "drop" the bullshit? NOWHERE in the OP story does it mention "lynch mobs".  ClarkUSA   Jul-11-11 12:27 PM   #86 
              - th epoint of the OP  SwampG8r   Jul-12-11 01:31 AM   #169

  - Thank you. You speak for me.  ClarkUSA   Jul-11-11 12:08 PM   #55
