Big Hog Balls Trial

  • After hearing from Henderson, Zagel acknowledged it was rare to have a panel without a black male, but he also said there are potential legal problems with dismissing a properly-selected random panel.

    Zagel declined the defense request and instead instructed both prosecutors and defense attorneys to confer with the U.S. Clerk’s office for the Northern District of Illinois to ensure the selection process used to put together the larger panel was done according to established protocols.

    In the meantime, he continued to question jurors from the panel of 50 in order to select 12 who will sit for trial. At the end of Tuesday, he had questioned 24, and selection was scheduled to continue Wednesday.

    Outside court, Beavers’ attorneys called the process “rigged” and said they had no confidence that checking with the clerk’s office would make a difference.

    “I’ve been trying cases down here 52 years. I have never seen a case where I represented a black (male) defendant and they sent out 50 jurors, 50! 50 jurors! And not one single black man,” said a highly agitated Sam Adam Sr. “Now don’t tell me that was an accident.”
No Sam, it's a mathematical possibility, though we highly doubt you ever took and passed a course in statistics.  Occasionally, the kicker misses the extra point.  Sometimes the Double-zero pops up in Roulette.  Sometimes, on the 7th day of the 7th month, the #7 horse in the 7th race at Arlington wins.  Sometimes he comes in last though.  It's rare, but it happens, and there's ol' Sam playing the tired ol' saw of "racism racism racism."

In any event, this should be an entertaining trial if Beavers actually takes the stand like he's threatening to.

Have known Judge Zagel since his time as head of IL Dept of Law Enforcement. I love that he gets these high profile trials because he's a straight shooter...literally and figuratively. Yes. Both.

I remember the very last time I was selected for a jury pool. 50 of us went in to the courtroom for a case of resisting arrest and a counter case of police misconduct. The first question asked was, "Has anyone had a negative experience with the Police, or had a personal Family member had a problem with the Police?" 50 hands went up, The Prosecutor said, "Unfuckingbelievable!" The judge, I think it she was Judge Green, chuckled and said, "It just isn't your day is it?" Nothing happened for about 60 seconds, then she turned to her Bailiff and said something. He turned around and said, "You are all dismissed." No kidding. Some days it's good to be the King.

Best headline seen (so far) regarding this carnival of a trial:

"Gag order issued in Beavers trial."

If, as we're told, that all men are created equal, then what difference does it make what the makeup of a jury is?

Is it possible that we are not all equal?

Anyway, Sam Adam is an asshole and not the great lawyer some people think he is. Ask Blogo.

He should just have his balls testify.

Yes...Mr. Adams is yelling "racism, racism, racism". What do you expect him to do? His client is fucked, and Sam knows it!Yelling Racist is the only option left for Hog Balls...
Hell, we see this at PC hearings all the time, for the same reason...

Now, let me see if I have this down correctly. We are supposed to be a colorblind society; one where race is merely a social construct.

If this is the case, should this not also apply to a randomly selected jury pool? Or, is this just another case where the usual suspects blurt out "But, this is different!"?

Not a LEO, not a lawyer.

If ole' hog nuts is pissed off andf screaming bloody murder then I am happy. If beavers is afraid that black men drunken casino goers aren't packing the jury then I am more confident he will get a fair trial.

Then he will be fairly convicted and fairly sentenced to prison. He will then fairly serve his time in a fairly selected Federal Prison and when finished he will be fairly released.

It is all this fairly done shit that hog nuts has the problem with.

Who'd a' thunk that JJJ Jr. and ole' hog nuts would both be standing before a Federal Judge in such a short period of time. Fairly done too.

I'm tired of seeing Sam Adams big head on TV always declaring his clients innocence, yet somehow they all keep getting convicted. Remember Big Rod was going to take the stand as well? Somehow that never materialized. Beavers is dirty like every other politician. I like the fact how he said he payed the money back. Of course he did after he knew he was going to be indicted. SEND HIS ASS AWAY!!! Then we can get on to the next dirty one.
Corruption, corruption,corruption

I was on a cook county jury and we had time to talk to the sheriff deputy about the selection process. He said that 1/3 of the pool is usually disqualified for lying on the questionaire, or have convictions. So out of a pool of 36, you are already down to 24. Then the lawyers want to find someone that passes the background check and wont fall asleep during the proceedings. It doesnt leave you much to work with. Most likely if you are/were a degreed professional (not a lawyer) you will be selected. He also said that they like nurses and teachers.

As usual, when they have nothing else, they play the race card. Every time that card is played is an admission of guilt.

So true, the guy that shot my husband off-duty during a hold up is now doing 25 years. Couldn't figure out how a shithead ended up with Sam Adam.

Let me put my two cents into this: Beavers is being tried before the same judge as Blago . Beavers is fast and loose with his comments as was Blago. Beavers has the same attorneys who are used to pulling their BS at 26th street, but found out it does not work at Federal court. Zagel does not take kindly to these theatrics and verbal assaults against the FBI and US Attorney, and should Beavers be convicted, i believe Zagal will slam Beavers. At least I hope he will. At least five years in jail and a very hefty fine. And, I dont think Beavers will take the stand. His attorneys are already backing off of that pledge. However, I hope he is enough of a stupid braggart to do so. This trial makes me very happy. Beavers has been interfering in police promotions since 1987, at least. Long time coming

Sam Adam Jr trying cases for 52 years. He's got to be in his 40's. Is that a misprint? Or a great exageration to grab headlines and news bites.
Beavers only wants a black male on his jury so he can hang the jury.
Great quote "All Politicians should only be allowed to serve two terms...One in office and one in prison"

Really? Only one?. That didn't happen at the Burge trial. Ask Burge's attorneys about it.

Me thinks the Big Hog is going to get his nuts clipped.

Just what they do on the farm when a male animal gets too aggressive.

We need a new law in Illinois that bans all politicians from casinos.

They follow up bad decisions at work with making bad decisions on the gaming floor.

How many have gone down this path?

Citizens lose THEIR money.

Politicians lose OUR money.

ALWAYS saw moosehead Spanish Peanut balls Beavers at Off Track Betting Parlor on 113 and Doty betting BIG TIME on the ponies and at the HORSESHOE in Hammond, In betting BIG TIME. AND LOSING. They treated Spanish Peanut nuts like he was an impotent mothafucka as they took his money. His eyeballs would spin in their sockets. It was comical.

Sam Adam Jr. trying cases in Federal Court is a joke, he is strickly a 26th and Cal bum, along with Stu Goldberg, If you remember Sam pissed off Zagel in the blago trial and blago went BY BY, I can see no reason that the jury won't find Hog Nuts Beavers, who by the way is a total, total JAG_OFF guilty, Sam Adam Sr. is a decent guy, but again has made his money in the little courts, sorry, but they are just not Big Court Legal Beagles !!!!!!!!
