ooooh that’s exciting!

I wonder if that would constitute a mistrial

I imagine the judge would be completely fed up with the whole thing.

though when isn’t the judge completely fed up? judges are basically lawyers who have either transcended giving a fuck or who have let their wrath consume them

so the judge was either enraged by the amount of paperwork that the jury murder entails

or he wrote a poem about the murder in his brief and included puns about the murder weapon

I think peanuts might have been involved.

aw man I thought he was gonna be guilty

so the jurors leave all smug like “we did a good thing today” and then the defendant leaves jail looking all grateful and then the music turns ominous and the camera zooms in on the defendant, who gives this wicked, smug little smirk before everything goes black

Well there’s a CSI episode where the jurors are there for a murder trial and then one of the jurors murder another juror. Don’t remember the name.

I don’t understand that reference D: but if we’re all angry then I’m sure it’ll be a fun deliberation

It’s a really good movie. 1 guy believes the defendant is innocent while the other 11 think he’s guilty. He stands his ground and eventually wins the others over and in the end the guy goes free. Also he was legitimately innocent, so yay.

I am excited about the judicial process! the FATE OF A HUMAN AND SOMETIMES AN ANIMAL IS IN MY HANDS and also the hands of like eleven other people but w/e

Maybe it’ll come down to a 12 Angry Men scenario, that would be exciting.

Ian McKellen’s online seminar about Richard III
This site from the National Theatre’s Stagework is one of the best educational websites ever. It’s a six-part interactive discussion and analysis of the play with Ian McKellen, and is a delight.

NPR covers all 2,428 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border, so you don’t have to.

The results are beautiful.
