The hits just keep rolling. From the Tennessee Lookout:
A Tennessee court ruled that having juries deliberate on the fate of Black defendants in a room decorated with Confederate memorabilia, by the United Daughters of the Confederacy â€” in the town in which the Ku Klux Klan was founded â€” presented no disadvantage to the defendants in the period 1909-2021.
Chew on that for a minute. We'll wait.
Don't let us spoil the fun â€” really, you'll want to read the full story to take in all the details â€” but the crux of the decision rested on a couple of key issues, according to the judge who wrote the decision:
1) No jury member ever commented on the memorabilia, therefore, in legal terms, no biggie.
2) Also, they probably didn't recognize the portraits of Confederate leaders and yes, that's A Confederate flag, but it's not THAT Confederate flag, so cool, cool. https://tennesseelookout.com/...fc-9f41-29d007ed55b1
