For interest sake

Post by Frankie Vegas on Sun 23 Jun 2013, 12:41 am

DALLAS -- A jury couldn't come to a unanimous verdict Friday afternoon in the mock trial of the man labeled as President John F. Kennedy's assassin, in an exercise organized and produced by the State Bar of Texas.

I must admit I am really surprised at this.

Me too. It's not as if they even used the actual witnesses, just actors.

I saw an interview with the "prosecutor". She said the problem was that jury members had gone into it already having their own ideas what happened. She also said they would "try" him again.

Apparently the trial lasted all of 3 hours and consisted of only the prosecution presenting the rifle purchase and ballistics as its case and the defence relying solely on  GK witnesses for a conspiracy case.

I would say that is a very good definition of a "mock" trial.

I agree, Greg. Perhaps they could have addressed the 15 simple questions I asked Gary Mack on my blog, since Mack never did.

Even still, shoddy mock trial that it is. DVP is having a tanty in the comments section. Trying to make sure everyone who reads the story thinks that this would have never happened in real life.
Although I agree with him partly, you have to wonder at that guys motivation. And stamina.

Anyone know if this new "trial" is ever going to take place? Even in the past year, there is a whole slew of new info I'd love to see get thrown into the mix of even just a "mock" trial.

IMO, it's not such a bad result. Defense attorneys should be reasonably pleased. The prosecution failed to convict their client.  

Of course, LHO could never be allowed to go to trial. Whoever set him up must have been sweating bullets when the DPD took him into custody. If LHO had been allowed to consult even a half-awake lawyer, the whole scenario could start to unravel.

544 Camp Street, Mexico City, the rifle, the pistol, the autopsy, the missing brain, and the lack of any motive on LHO's part to shoot JFK. These would have caused huge headaches for prosecutors. To get a unanimous conviction, the judge would have to be bought. And the jury would have to be put in fear for their lives.

LBJ could do that, but even so, there would be trial transcripts on paper - for the appeal and later for historians to dig through. So LHO had to be whacked. Vincent Salandria was right. If he didn't survive the week-end, it was a coup d'etat.

Hasan, I read your blog. Questions 2,3,11,12, 14 are interesting to me. I didn't know Arcacha-Smith had a street map of Dealey Plaza sewers.
