Just been on the news that 2 of them have changed their minds and think that he is guilty!

Well there's a surprise

Nbg Tue 09-Aug-05 14:38:41

I can't believe they would come out and say that now!

Yes, what a shame for justice and the legal system that they didn't air their opinions more forcibly when discussing with the other jurors!

I quite agree, hmc.

I wonder if they always thought that but were out numbered by the other jurors so kept quiet!

God I'd love to be a fly at times.

Are these the same 2 who have signed book deals? Bit more exciting than "Why I think MJ is pure as the driven"

It didn't say. It was just a small report on Radio 1.

They must be tossers, quite frankly. I'm rather in the camp of "speak now or forever hold your peace" when it comes to things like this. If they thought he was guilty at the time, they should have said so. Unless new evidence has come to light, why should their opinions have changed since the trial?

So they did vote guilty to start then!

What a load of tripe about them all sticking together then and making a pact!

According to the juror I heard about(who BTW has signed a book deal but "not for the money"!) She said that she thought he was guilty but there was a niggiling(sp?) doubt that the kid was lying and thats where "reasonable doubt" comes in.
As for the "not for the money" book deal...Yeah right!!

I can't believe that legally anyone is allowed to make money by writing a book / TV appearances about being on a jury and discussing the case. Can that be right?

munz Tue 09-Aug-05 14:49:08

arn't they doing books?

Nbg Tue 09-Aug-05 14:50:22

You would have thought so TG.

Not allowed in the UK but in the US maybe the constitutional right to free specch trumps all?

I believe we should know more about jurors' deliberations, but making money out of it is another kettle of fish.

What a sad bunch. Poor kids.

donnie Tue 09-Aug-05 15:52:35

is seems so obvious they are looking to make a fast buck - how pathetic.

Televising stuff like this will always bring out the worst in people. They get seduced by the possiblity of having their own 15 minutes. Integrity goes out of the window.
