8. This paragraph got my attention.
Hultman, 62, told Cosby he was upset with the way other jurors approached the case: "The thing that really got me the most was the fact that people just wouldn't take those blinders off long enough to really look at all the evidence that was there."

NOw, personally, I have no idea whether MJ is guilty or not since I heard none of the evidence (as no cameras were allowed in the courtroom.) When I read this, I took it to mean that many of the jurors were either star-struck or already had their mind made up.

Basically, it seems that this guy thought he was guilty because of the evidence that was there, but that he felt many of the other jurors had blinders on to the evidence and he just voted with them.

Who knows what was going on? I just found this artlice on Yahoo!'s front page news and it got my attention.
