retried because his actions meant that he was never in "real
Deference should be given to any "real jury", ie one that
takes its job seriously and makes every effort to come to a
good verdict, and not do things like come to the trial drunk
. But one thing that this trial has pointed out ( through
all my reading on juror misconduct ) is just how much
deference is given to a group of people we call a jury.
The question I pointed out is should we ( as a society )
allow judges more powers to investigate a jury to see that
it is a "real jury".
