The judge and the state had their chance to bow out gracefully Friday and declined. Politically, I believe they had no choice. Now I predict that the state will suffer complete and utter humiliation at the hands of the defense team.
Perhaps it is better that the entire case is rolled out so that everyone can have the knowledge that the process was followed and hopefully, that justice was served.
I really feel for those jurors. Unless they can remain anonymous post trial, If they acquit, their lives will not be the same for some time, if ever. They would need a security detail for the foreseeable future.
