JURY OF ONE'S PEERS

What is this world coming to when a Tennessee trailer park resident accused of striking her brother's girlfriend in the face with a brick can't seat the following citizens on her jury? 1) a drug addict ("I'm high as a kite); 2) an alcoholic with a history of soliciting prostitutes ("should have known she was a police officer, she had teeth"); 3) an alleged attempted murderer ("shot my nephew because he wouldn't come out from under the bed") and 4) a man who said it was common knowledge that the defense attorney, Leslie Ballin, only represents guilty folks. Despite the challenges, a jury was seated and acquitted the defendant. http://www.cnn.com/2005/LAW/01/18/shallow.jury.pool

I've always found that the only difference between a cop and a whore is that the cop has teeth.
