From Holden:

One less distraction from the scandal-plagued Bush assministration.

If you did not sit in the jury box you just don’t have the standing to question their decision. I myself once sat on a jury that rendered a decision that was derided by an advocacy group I supported (and continue to support) simply because those speaking out against the decision did not hear all of the evidence. The prosecution has a heavy burden, and if they can’t carry it then it is the jury’s duty to acquit.
