HAMILTON: Trayvon, Zimmerman & the sympathetic jury


Niagara Gazette — So when you are angry at a jury’s decision, think back to how you got out of jury duty, or why lifestyle choices exempted you from duty at all. In serving, you might not have only made a difference in someone else’s life, but you might have also set a difference into motion in the law that may one day save either your loved one or you.

While it made no difference in the trial of the young man who killed my boy, but like it could have made a difference in so many cases like Trayvon’s, and it could make a difference in your child’s.
