Did black jurors refuse to convict black murder, despite massive evidence, because his victim was white?


John Derwin Scroggins was killed and his friend was injured.

In 2012, two white men were attacked at random by two armed black men. One was shot and killed. They other was shot twice and wounded. It took place in majority black Montgomery County, Alabama.

The gunman was just acquitted by a majority black jury. There were three eyewitness. One of the eyewitnesses was the gunman’s accomplice. Despite massive overwhelming evidence, the majority black jury acquitted the gunman on all charges.

In the past, majority black juries have refused to convict black men who were certainly guilty of heinous crimes against white people. However, we have never seen an acquittal with such an overwhelming volume of evidence.
