Jurors questioned about Confederate "heritage" in trial of John Wiley Price

The use of the term "heritage" by the "Dallas Morning News" says something about them.

This was my article about selecting jurors and excluding members of neo-Confederates groups and other persons sympathetic to the Confederacy.

I don't know if the lawyers mountain the defense of John Wiley Price ever read or heard of my paper. They might have, on the other hand not having neo-Confederates or Lost Cause believes as jurors in the case where an African American is a defendant is sort of an obvious thing to do.

Of course Price can afford paid lawyers and it remains to be seen if public defender lawyers will start making inquiries.

This case at least sets a precedent for other lawyers to follow.
