Iím surprised they didnít request illegal aliens for jurors. This illegal has a ďteamĒ of attorneys. No doubt, at taxpayersí expense.

Attorneys for a Salvadoran immigrant charged with killing federal intern Chandra Levy may not examine the last names of potential jurors to determine whether the pool is likely to include Hispanics, a D.C. Superior Court judge ruled Friday.

The ruling was a setback for the lawyers representing Ingmar Guandique, who have argued that their client cannot get a fair trial in the District if there are no Hispanics on the jury.

The jury pool are all US citizens - that's all they need to know (barring the usual coutroom theatrics when it comes to picking jurors)

Fisher said that just because a person was in a gang didn't mean that gang was involved in violent activity. He cited the character Spanky from the "Our Gang" series from the 1930s.
Can it get more ridiculous?

This piece of trash is here illegally and killed Chandra Levy. He destroyed many lives and political careers by his selfish sadistic act. And now we're accommodating this non-citizen and catering to him?

WTF country are we living in?

WTF do we have laws for anyhow?

This Is Disgusting!

OMG, I remember that case when it happened. I didn't know it was an illegal that killed her. She was taken from her apartment wearing a towel (because she had just came from the shower). No clothes or shoes were missing, her ID and purse, still inside the apartment.

Everyone assumed it was the Congressman she worked for that had something to do with it. Police focused on him, and it almost ruined his marriage.

Oh, so he is saying that a Hispanic juror or two would see things differently? Based on what, ethnocentricism? I thought jurors were supposed to be unbiased and just stick with the facts and evidence?
