A judge Thursday excused 112 people from jury duty in the trial of two men accused in the riot beating of trucker Reginald O. Denny. One man was dismissed after saying he was "sick and tired of crime."
Superior Court Judge John W. Ouderkirk questioned prospects to determine whether a three-month trial would prove a hardship.
"Does hardship include personal prejudice?" asked one man. "I'm sick and tired of crime. I watch the news every night and it would be difficult for me to be neutral."
