1. That sounds reasonable.

Fair and impartial.

2. Nearly all-White jury picked for trial in Ahmaud Arbery's killing, over prosecution's protests

This is an outrage



An overwhelmingly White jury will weigh murder charges in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery after the defense struck 11 out of 12 Black people from the final pool for a nationally watched case in which race looms large.

Prosecutors alleged racial discrimination Wednesday in jury selection, formally challenging eight of the defense picks. But the judge rejected the prosecutors’ argument, saying the defense gave sufficient reasons other than race for their choices.

Black people made up a quarter of the finalist jurors; the jury ultimately included one Black man and 11 White people.....

When a strike is challenged as racially motivated, however, lawyers must give a “race-neutral” justification for their choice.

Those reasons are “pretty easy to find,” said Ashleigh Merchant, a Georgia attorney who has been following the case and knows lawyers on both sides.
