White Supremacist Wants More White People on Grand Jury

Subhead essential for new site design! This is where it goes!


The lawyer for Daniel Cowart, one of the two white supremacists charged with a hatching a plot to assassinate President-elect Barack Obama, has filed a petition to have Cowart's indictment dismissed. The grounds? Not enough white people on the Grand Jury.

Cowart's lawyer's petition states that because the 23-member grand jury had only two white members, it could not be fair and impartial.

To which we say: The next time you racist fools come up with an insane plot to kill a bunch of black people, you might want do it a little closer to, say, Boise, instead of Memphis, Tennessee. More here.
