Description

There's one critical aspect of the Curtis Flowers case that we haven't looked at yet -- the makeup of the juries. Each of the four times Flowers was convicted, the jury was all white or nearly all white. So we decided to look more closely at why so few black jurors had been selected. And it wasn't always happenstance. Support investigative journalism with a donation to In the Dark.

They don't mention how the blacks in Winona were too afraid to talk to the police. They were all threatened. There are a lot of things that were left out of this Democratic version. For instance, a black lady tried to lie to Judge Loper about being pulled over and harassed, minutes before arriving at the trial, just to try to stir up some racial bullshit. Another jurer lied about knowing him, but was his fucking first cousin. Look, the bastard did it. They found the money he stole, hidden in his headboard, and the box to the shoes he was wearing when he killed them. Facts.

Cassie There are some good blacks and bad blacks. There are some good whites and bad whites. Same with any color.

I guess I'm wondering... we can agree that Curtis Flowers did not commit this crime, but someone did. Has the defense done anything to investigate and find the real killer?

these people think someone, a sane person would get so angry to kill 4 people after only working for the company for 3days? and not having any criminal background? I knew he was innocent when they said this was the motive. it's completely insane.

I just about lost it when that a**hole said there were some "good blacks" on the jury. The racist South is still alive and well.

this podcast makes me feel deeply in so many ways, one of which is a strong feeling of anger towards these clearly incompetent people being allowed to practice law and stand as jurors. so frustrating. I'm just deeply, deeply sad and heartbroken for Curtis, who has to sit through time and again, unable to stand up for himself in any way or manner. my heart goes out to him and his family, who are going through heart-wrenching times they do not at all deserve.

Editing in this episode needs to be looked at. The narration is too rapid, it's quite frustrating to listen to.
