One juror said that sentencing a gay man to prison would be “sending him where he wants to go.” Another said Rhines “shouldn’t be able to spend his life with men in prison.” A third juror went farther: “There was a lot of disgust” in the jury’s diliberation room. “This is a farming community.”
So, this is an easy appeal, right? Bias is bias… yet, the Supreme Court didn’t see it that way…. ruling jury deliberations could be impeached if jurors were deliberating with racial bias. Thus the question must be asked… if racism can vacate a jury’s verdict… then shouldnt homophobia? America, I think we have a problem!
