What Henry Wade Looked For In Jurors

Post by Vinny on Tue 24 Jan 2017, 1:19 am

“What to look for in a juror.”


Source http://www.dmagazine.com/publications/d-magazine/1977/june/the-law-and-henry-wade/


A. Attitudes.

1. You are not looking for a fair juror, but rather a strong, biased and sometimes hypocritical individual who believes that Defendants are different from them in kind, rather than degree.



2. You are not looking for any member of a minority group which may subject him to oppression -they almost always empathize with the accused.



3. You are not looking for the free thinkers and flower children.



B. Observation is worthwhile.

1. Look at the panel out in the hall before they are seated. You can spot the showoffs and the liberalsby how and to whom they are talking.



2.Observe the veniremen as they walk into the courtroom.

a. You can tell almost as much about a man by how he walks, as how he talks.

b. Look for physical afflictions. These people usually sympathize with the accused.



3. Dress.

a. Conservatively, well dressed people are generally stable and good for the State.

b. In many counties, the jury summons states that the appropriate dress is coat and tie. One who does not wear a coat and tie is often a non-conformist and therefore a bad State’s juror.

4. Women.

a. I don’t like women jurors because I can’t trust them.

b. They do, however, make the best jurors in cases involving crimes against children.

c. It is possible that their “women’s intuition” can help you if you can’t win your case with the facts.

d. Young women too often sympathize with the Defendant; old women wearing too much make-up are usually unstable, and therefore are bad State’s jurors.

e. It is impossible to keep women off your jury, but try to keep the ratio at least seven to five in favor of men.



5. Weight. Extremely overweight people, especially women and young men, indicates a lack of self-discipline and often times instability. I like the lean and hungry look.

6. Age. People over forty are more settled and more ready to believe that criminals should be punished.

7. Race. Minority races almost always empathize with the Defendant.

8. Demeanor.

a. Attentive, intelligent looking veniremen that you are able to communicate with on Voir Dire will generally be all right.

b. Always observe how the veniremen react when being questioned by the defense attorney, and compare it to the venireman’s reaction to you.

+ Unusual Texas Practice - The Jury Shuffle: Texas, is the only state where a "jury shuffle" is permitted. In effect, the jury shuffle procedure allows the lawyers, after getting a quick look at the sequence in which the prospective jurors are seated, to require that the sequence be reordered.  Judges don't like jury shuffles. Many defense lawyers and prosecutors like having the right to force a shuffle. Art. 35.11 CCP provides that, upon the demand of the defendant or his attorney or of the prosecutor, the trial court must shuffle the names of a sufficient number of the prospective jurors from the general panel drawn or assigned to the case. The rub is that only one shuffle is allowed. See Chappell v. State, 850 S.W.3d 508 (Tex. Crim. App. 1993). The motion must be presented in a timely manner before the voir dire commences, e.g., in a non-capital case, before the prosecution begins its voir dire but not when the trial court is giving its initial instructions to the jury. See Davis v. State, 782 S.W.2d 211 (Tex. Crim. App. 1989). Failure to shuffle upon request is error, but the error can be harmless. See Ford v. State, 73 S.W.3d 923 (Tex. Crim. App 2002).

“You are not looking for a fair juror…”. Those words alone in Henry Wade’s prosecutor’s manual seem reason enough to overturn the conviction of anyone under Wade’s regime.

Wade's legacy.

What is it called when you know someone is innocent and still persist with a wrongful conviction and the result is the innocent suspect is executed?

Its called murder.

More laws are being enacted to be able to prosecute the Henry Wade's of the world who would hide behind some judicial robes.

I recently watched a piece on Jarbidge, Nevada, a remote gold mining town.
It was the location of two historical events.
Its was where the last stagecoach robbery in the US took place.
(actually this wasn't a stagecoach but a buckboard wagon)
Also where the first use of forensics was used to get a palm print and convict the man they say did the crime.

Please read the short tale of the Robbery and Aftermath and see what you think;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jarbidge_Stage_Robbery


The witnesses to the suspects Alibi was dismissed.
A dog that followed the posse was claimed to have liked the robbery suspect best and followed him to an empty money bags location... yet the stray dog followed the posse too, so isn't it more likely the dog would follow anyone.
The bloody palm print reminds me of the 'palm' print on the MC rifle.
Then a jacket... A ripped or torn sleeved jacket.

More on the case, and notice the parallels

https://books.google.com/books?id=OEJemQWU3hsC&pg=PA63&lpg=PA63&dq=jarbidge+kuhl+forensics&source=bl&ots=5BwzCZa87d&sig=shkTctZJtPS7oO6KyiTjGMkKIKY&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjdm5_G74jSAhVLr1QKHQihDKgQ6AEISDAI#v=onepage&q=jarbidge%20kuhl%20forensics&f=false

Scroll down for the first Polygraph in Frye vs. US
As noted a very brief and un-annotated opinion was given.
This relied on experts in the field to give the court their opinions as to when a technology has passed the experimental or demonstrable threshold to gain general acceptance.

To wit I find the fox guarding the hen house, as those experts are often beneficiaries to the technology in various ways.


It is due to State vs Kuhl that palm prints are considered equal to fingerprints.

...then Frye opened the polygraph door....and several more.

Wade and the DPD would use these precedence to win jury convictions based on all but the next step, DNA.
That evidence would be his undoing.

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/photos/2013/09/02/today-in-dallas-photo-history-1967-countdown-in-dallas-a-jfk-assassination-movie-begins-filming


Henry Wade, the legendary Dallas County district attorney known for his no-nonsense style, apparently was not immune to the lure of a little movie magic.

And the man with a reputation for unshakeable integrity was agreeable to receiving thousands of dollars in return for giving filmmakers exclusive access to legal documents connected to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, some of which were kept from the public for another four decades.

The existence of 15 boxes of JFK-related material, locked away in a DA's office safe, was announced Monday by Craig Watkins, the current district attorney, who said his  predecessors had kept the documents under wraps even after Mr. Wade's retirement.

Mr. Wade died in 2001, and several calls to surviving family members were not returned.

Tantalizing new details about the little-known episode of Mr. Wade's involvement in a movie venture about the Nov. 22, 1963, JFK assassination and the trial of Jack Ruby were found in a Dallas Morning News examination of the long-hidden files.

What emerges is a story that sometimes resembles comic opera but contains what appears to be a breach of ethics.

Righting city's image

Mr. Wade's involvement in the venture began with a letter to Dallas leaders sometime in early 1967 from Robert Larsen, whose Colorado-based production company made commercials and industrial films.
