"The defense lawyer *has* to defend their client by whatever means are available to them."

The only lawyer that 'has' to defend a client is one appointed by the court. The one's that are paid by the defendant don't get a pass from me.

You know, I am kinda torn on the whole hate-on for the attorneys.....

Just like a case a few days ago of a lawyer who is arguing his clients are not guilty of rape because their unconscious victim didn't say "no". It's easy to get outraged about such defenses, but I think of it this way.....

The defense lawyer *has* to defend their client by whatever means are available to them. If reasonable defenses are simply non-existent, they must reach for unreasonable ones. They are not there to serve justice, exactly, they are there to serve their clients to the best of their ability, even if it means reaching for ridiculous defense strategies. They can't just stand there in court and say "my client's an asshole... I have nothing to offer in his defense."

Leave the emotions out of it and put yourself in the position of the defense lawyer. What else can you do when you know your client is pretty much up the creek without a paddle? If this kind of defense, however, actually gets them OFF - well, that's worth getting bent out of shape about.

Release him in Iraq then kill him with a drone. Probably save the taxpayers a little money.

Well I think jury selection can go ahead like any other case, and lawyers can use their exclusions for whomever they like.

Now, perhaps the lawyer could make the argument that the defendant cannot get a fair trial due to the high number of Jewish people (or those sympathetic towards Jewish people) in the local jury pool and move for a change of venue.

No, they're not allowed to ask that. And even with outwardly signs that one is Jewish, does not mean that they'll automatically be pro Israel, or a Zionist.

The attorney is out of line. If I were the judge, I'd see what I an do to teach this idiot a lesson.

Hubby on the other hand slightly disagrees with me.

Yeah... are they allowed to ask that?

I would think some are much more obvious than others, depending on their level of orthodoxy.

Oh sheesh, why not throw a quarter on the floor instead? :)

I'd eat the babyback ribs.

If I were part of those being questioned by the attorney, no way would any of them know that I'm a Jew unless they asked directly.

Offer each person in the jury pool a small section of baby back ribs and see what happens!?! :P

For each that refuses, offer a chicken finger. Those that decline are probably vegetarians.

Of those that accept, offer a shot of Johnny Walker Blue to weed out the Muslims, Bahais, and Buddhists.

Of those that decline, offer some schmaltz on matzah.

You should be left with Jewish people, right?

Yes, I know I'm being a dipshit.

*In other words, couldn't a lawyer simply use their exclusions to turf Jews from the jury pool? *

How is the attorney going to find out which of the jurors is Jewish?
