Just before the trial of Mr Aubrey's killers began, USA Today reported on the jury...

It consisted of 9 women and 3 men: the sole black juror was a man. (The alternates were 2 women and 1 man.) Their individual responses to the standard questions are summarized in the article.

https://www.usatoday.com/in-depth/news/nation/2021/11/07/ahmaud-arbery-trial-jury-what-we-know/6269841001/

The 12-person jury consists of at least two retired law enforcement officers, a former nurse and a clinician. Another has a background in psychology.

Several said they previously served on a jury. Four indicated they own firearms. Four said they believe police do not treat white and Black people equally. Four said they have lived in Glynn County for less than five years. Nearly all said they'd seen the video of the killing.

These profiles were built around the limited information made available to media throughout the jury selection process. The court declined to release details about race or age. Here's what we know about the jurors, with some identifying information retracted.


One described the video as 'obscene'. And, from a juror described as a retired IT professional:

Have you seen the cellphone video? The woman said she doesnít have time to watch a lot of TV but thinks she has seen the cellphone video two or three times. "I just wonder why they didnít call a cop instead of doing what they did," she said.

Does race factor into this case? "I would assume that."

1. No world class jury consultant huh?

They didnít have near the money behind them.

Sounds like the jury was varied as you can get.

2. jury selection needs to include the question "do you ever listen to talk radio?"

in this case it may not have mattered, but in many others it likely does
