sounds like in the name of the child the jury had made a decision. I can see a defence lawyer kicking out a juror who had an obvious aversion to child abusers, cause it aint fair to the psycho. Who is it that allows which jurors stay and go in the united states?

Do you know the first thing about how the justice system works here?
He hadn't even spoken with a cop yet, how on EARTH would a jury have spoken? He was not found guilty. He wasn't even tried yet. He wasn't even *charged* yet. And you think a jury had spoken? Clue into the case! Angry mobs are not juries. If you don't understand that, I think you'd be better off living in the middle ages.
Juries are chosen by collaboration between the defense, prosecutor, and the judge, not by whoever happens to grab their pitchfork first.
