Kate Steinle Murder Trial: Fifth Day of Deliberations, but No Verdict Yet

At The Mercury News.

N.S.: This is starting to sound like the Jessica Chambers trial redux.

That open-and-shut case ended in a mistrial, though the rogue, black jury foreman repeatedly lied in open court, and asserted that the jury had acquitted the black defendant. The prosecutor said he’s going to retry the killer, er, defendant.

In the Kate Steinle case, the defendant confessed to killing her, and yet, here we are.

How does one describe the American criminal justice system? Dead? You can’t say it’s on life support, because there is no equivalent to life support in the criminal justice system. Everyone is doing his part to ensure the triumph of evil.

I couldn't get a feel for this trial It wasn't live streamed and the "reporters?" Well, forget it. Let's just say they make you miss Jamie Satterfield.

With the jessica Chambers trial it was streamed and you could tell what was going on. Not with this one for the Murder of the Woman on Pier 14.

They say "Never anticipate a jury." But I'm not optimistic.
