Era okay how direct you pollen -- I'm I'm doing my best drive follow -- -- I don't know outlaws this this might end up being the longest jury selection process recede in the long time.
And it really is it's going very slam and think about it they're just trying to get.
Six -- and that that they are trying again.
Twelve but you know they're asking some really great question anything standing out yet you've been observing -- courtroom proceeding.
I was just.
Just mentioning you know -- I've been kind of a social media vote for a long time.
And one of the things I can share with you is that there is a different standard today.
Then there used to be and I think we were just talking about the fact that a lot of people would always read newspapers or watch Walter Cronkite back and go back -- the nineteen.
You know sixties in terms of the pattern of people being engaged but differences.
The engagement now is two way.
It's not one way it used to be.
We received a message about information.
But rarely did we ever involve ourselves rarely did we ever divulged information.
About ourselves in relation to a story -- day.
And I think the best example of what was that one Utley I think it was.
Jurors seven or something regardless of the number it doesn't.
Really matter who had essentially -- on FaceBook talking about this.
And expressing her feelings or his feelings I'm not sure which.
But -- who it was.
And add -- and get it comes out you know that.
You know that they were there they were saying hundreds of companies are very different from what they were actually telling that the -- -- the judges were out of the attorneys who were asking them -- questions.
Well we need to keep in mind.
That social -- today it's not about taking in information it's about putting out information about sharing.
A whole different ball.
And it is extremely advantageous.
For the attorneys to be able to get that information and it's not a privacy issue -- They're publishing.
This stuff out there it's public information.
Yeah I it's interesting when you see the mix that -- -- your -- familiar with the area tells a little bit about it the jurors that they are seeing that are coming in to this pool to try to case.
Well you know we're talking about Sanford Florida it's an area very different from -- -- metropolitan areas.
Around you know Miami Orlando Tampa Jacksonville most of the big.
Cities in the state and there means.
Look here here's here's what we often say about much of the state of Florida.
The state of Florida has South Florida.
Right which is completely different cosmopolitan.
New -- -- Latin American influence.
That you have the panhandle which is essentially Georgia.
And then you have parts of the Central Florida and -- outskirts of Central Florida places like Sanford.
Are essentially more of an extension of the south.
Then it is what we would normally think of -- Florida or the north eastern influence so you know that really comes into play.
I'm trying to figure else.
How they can create a jury that is diverse.
In a place like Sanford because I think what you're buying especially you know in the south.
There is a huge ideological difference between.
People who are of different at this city's -- African Americans vs a non African Americans.
So for -- -- try and get as somebody stated earlier to put them trying to get to African Americans on the jury.
As opposed to not -- -- to white Americans and then to Hispanics as well well tell him that that that that's going to be -- to do.
-- county add a comment yet.
I mean I think it's a very interest -- federation of dynamic obviously the victims African American.
The defendant is Hispanic so it creates a dynamic in the -- -- I was wondering to what extent you know.
Those type of questions have been put into play during what we've seen initially -- election.
Yeah have you noticed down any question -- my fat wreck.
I think so far the questions have been very open ended I think they're trying to get that it look let's face it you can.
It if you tend to be distrustful.
Of the police department.
Which many African Americans are based on their experience in the United States last time I checked I think something like.
Of whites in the United States say -- ever had an experience with police where they felt that the police were being discriminatory against them.
The number one US non whites that very same question is 52%.
From 52 to nine what does that tell you whether they're right or wrong or it's you know a perception -- -- reality doesn't matter.
But you ask questions regarding these types of issues which I have seen asked.
And you'll find which people tend to be more conspiratorial.
Which people tend to be more worried about the police department as opposed to people who are pro military pro law and order.
And -- pretty much be able to decipher.
Which ones are going to be more favorable to Zimmerman as opposed to more favorable to the prosecution and trade mark Martin's -- At some of them would put it.
