R. Kelly Teaches You About The Legal System
This may sound strange, but we'd like to strongly encourage you to read the Chicago Tribune's "gavel to gavel" report from R. Kelly's child pornography trial. Not only because it is awesomely hilarious, with lines like: "During some jurors' interviews, Kelly has been observed bopping his head in a manner that suggests he's grooving to a beat that only he can hear." Mostly because it's providing a detailed glimpse into the court system that is a lot different from the one seen on, say, Law and Order. There have already been something like 10 posts on the jury selection process (one prospective juror blamed R. Kelly for 9/11), explaining everything in detail. Plus there is R. Kelly and the child pornography, which makes the added bonus of learning about jury selection just salacious enough to keep reading about.
