Let me add bring in right now some thoughts about the fact that.
We haven't even discussed the whole issue of guns and we haven't even gone there yet with these jurors -- that discussion is going to be very enlightening to.
And I know that it's going to be an opportunity for these attorneys -- did he.
And to me get to know more about these your -- at -- ready it's now -- keep Sullivan's from a defense attorneys -- -- -- now.
Nice to see you thank you for joining us and I were talking about as you know.
The jury makeup and if you're looking at.
This issue about -- for jurors who -- pro gun.
Or at least more law and order.
That's something that.
George Zimmerman has been YSE -- have on the jury to hopefully benefit his his case is to get back -- the story.
Actually -- so it definitely many items that his attorneys are going to be looking for and it's pretty easy to find down there in that -- of Florida if we were New York City.
We sort of have a visceral reaction -- people walking around with guns.
Very anti -- is not permitted appear.
Down there very different story so well I think his attorneys are gonna focus on that try to get people war as -- -- gone friendly.
I think you'll be fairly successful -- that it won't have.
You warm reaction that you would point other jurisdictions I think -- be okay.
Of course what's the biggest thing as a defense -- will be looking for.
That tore apart from that -- that -- -- that kind of profile will -- the -- her real well.
My esteemed colleague and I will certainly tell you that as we -- -- jurors we want a jury that's going to be fair and reasonable.
And I can tell you wolf as an attorney and a law professor who -- this area of the law.
That's below my LaMarcus said earlier her death he brought that up as well we want jurors who were going to advocate for our client -- -- an actuary.
And that's all we want.
So this jury selection is really jewelry he selection -- -- Do you selecting jurors that might not appreciate a person civilians walking around with a -- -- Might not appreciate.
Any number of factors that could come into play.
In this case so that's what they're really trying to do was decently we don't want -- be fair impartial jury we -- majority it's gonna be on our side from day one.
And many cases it's it's -- to tell.
Can be won or lost in jury selection depending on who you put that box.
So there's a very important part of the case prosecution -- they expect to list two weeks.
We've been following on an hourly basis we -- an analysis of each -- -- it was in the box with their answers questions are.
It could go on.
Beyond that the two week expressing it there's some expertise to go for three weeks before we had a critical needed in this case critical stage of -- trial.
Very much so.
I'm Rick lineup was -- -- -- you know.
I was just I was just thinking you know with the you know -- leave it to me because I've been talking about all that we all have talking about all these stories.
And data mining.
And the way the President Obama was able to use this information to get elected them to pinpoint what kinds of people who needed to get what message do.
Now we're reading about the information that's coming out of the NSA and I'm just gigabytes -- -- hearing one of your -- and I'm sorry I didn't catch the name.
How much of this could be computerize.
How much of this could you take all -- data that you've gotten when you've got finally got it down do a hundred jurors -- procedure for whatever.
Put -- -- a computer and say I'll hop.
You know colleague Tom Landry used to do with the cowboys -- it computerized call it -- but the players.
This is the perfect jurors that we need to have so says the data as analyzed by the computer.
Blogger -- the program that we've set up possible anybody don't.
Is -- they didn't think you know the jury console law professor.
If you're insulted if they -- and he is a little bit may actually have a I'm sure they have a system in place.
Where they have the perfect teacher for that -- -- -- the ideal person.
And he's taking all of this data and putting it and and and I'm sure they catch a plane in a program in place where they're going to identify the best people possible based on the answers that they had been paid yet.
Do we know he confessed that -- practice is done you know.
With different you know different scenarios where.
To deal with so many different.
Types of jurors and you're trying to.
You know we we -- down and trying to make sure you didn't get investors to argue your case it's very proposition and only court.
Bits and pieces of -- but from my understanding was asking about is -- their data model that and basically the lawyers always from a technological standpoint.
Years behind the rest of society so there should be what faith is right there are the -- experts with -- basically whispering in the attorneys here's telling them.
This is where you want you want somebody who watches these types of shows reach these types of books has these sort of view points.
Because statistics and studies have shown that's really what -- -- -- as opposed to.
Putting the facts of this case into -- computer based model.
Would that be great.
That would be.
Powerful information -- happens -- to go to court we just not there yet so we relied on the jury consultants as they mentioned that give us.
-- for -- generally speaking somebody who watches Fox News.
Votes this way somebody who watches CNN thinks this way about this particular issue and those are the things you're trying to probe should go for your jewelry.
Computer model no magic.
As of yet but maybe one -- we'll get there but it's very court.
To define human reaction instinct and emotion.
On that level advertise have been trying to do for years there so it is there is a very or to do but the -- Broad strokes.
Rules of -- you go by mark.
Well you know and it I'm not an attorney but having.
-- -- Prosecutors picking a jury you gotta be careful that you don't.
Pass on jurors because they're not perfect and if there is a bottle -- -- profile whether it's in your head around a piece of paper.
Yeah I I think sometimes the longer the jury selection goes.
The worst jury you end up with because you've passed over people that are 85.
Maybe a little better now but I'm -- -- for -- 100% but what I really want and then you end up with a 65%.
Of what you really want because you've just got to pick a jury.
Statistics prove that out added that the -- very -- legend goes it intends to.
-- The case for a particular site.
-- Yeah I mean you know it's like yeah okay which will right now we are looking for the ideal jurors defense and prosecution.
And they have their idea so there -- eliminating people right now.
That very well might be.
-- -- juror at the end of two or three weeks.
They're passing because they think they have this huge pool they have all the time in the world they're representing their client or the state.
And they're pushing the envelope on this to the it to the point of absurdity.
Jury selection -- normal murder trial was like two or three days.
And it's all over.
Now that's a point well taken but we know that this report says you don't -- circumstances surrounding it.
Marc raised a very good point is you don't you don't want to get so bogged down -- -- theories and ideas and concepts and push away an ideal sure is often -- -- joke with my adversary prosecutors say.
First twelve in the box let's just take -- and go home and make it easy because despite all of our training -- -- reading -- an analysis.
We may not be doing much better job than that just randomly selecting it.
However and more snow is as an investigator.
To go with your gut instinct and if all of the rules of -- telling you.
Try to Stewart don't select them you have a good feeling with -- you have a good report with them.
As mark knows as an investigator you have to go to gut instinct and ways to the same thing we often.
-- -- -- take yours that is against the grain so you know something he raises a good point but I think the attorneys are cognizant you know how to navigate.
Is 1 o'clock here on the East Coast and right on time the judge is now back in the courtroom.
So -- resume our top coverage and I thank our fabulous panel for weighing in thank you mark -- Rick Sanchez.
And I appreciate your insights as always you.
He -- -- -- happening here I think is always great to see you thank you very much the very illuminating.
