1/ Chicago is 32 percent African-American but only one of the jurors in the trial of the police officer who killed #LaquanMcDonald is African-American. How many African-American jurors did the defense strike?
2/ It is unconstitutional for prosecutors or the defense to strike jurors on account of their race, but it’s a difficult allegation to prove, especially against the defense.

If the jury is hung, the public will question the racial composition of this jury.
3/ It would be helpful for journalists to explain how this jury was selected and why the “Batson” (racial discrimination in jury selection) challenges were made and rejected. /end
