King Jurors

June 11, 1993

* So Lawrence Powell, convicted felon, concludes that his jury was composed of "cowards" ("Powell Says King Jurors Took the 'Easy Out,' " June 3). This, we must understand, from a well-trained, armed police officer, who in the company of a group of similarly armed and trained officers estimated to have numbered from 12 to 23, could not take one large, drunken, crawling, kneeling man into custody without first smashing him into submission. The members of the jury need not be offended or concerned. There were cowards in the courtroom . . . but they were not seated in the jury box.
