Would a Grand Jury Really Indict a Ham Sandwich?
My man Gene O'Donnell (former police officer and prosecutor and current colleague of mine at John Jay College of Criminal Justice) on WNYC's Brian Lehrer Show. Well worth listening to. Unless, of course, you fully understand what a grand jury is and how it works... which you, like I, don't. Also, if you click through that link, there's a great chart from the NewsHour that summarizes the witness testimony. For what it's worth, based on my experience (and much academic research), I don't put much credence in eyewitness testimony.
