  •  So, I was wondering, as I read this diary, (14+ / 0-)

    "Why didn't the officer go with a jury trial? That's weird". Then I read your closing statements: "It turns out, though, that Dugan shouldn't have even been on the case.  His wife, Nancy, is a 16-year veteran of the Philly PD--and according to legal experts, he should have recused himself."

    Makes sense. He'd stand a much better chance with one friend than 12 peers who may or may not agree with police brutality. When you know the odds are stacked in your favor. . .
