Here's some things a body in deacons do it last night that does some people were very upset that. Thought Ray Nagin had been railroaded that it wasn't a jury of his peers that there wasn't enough minority representation on it. But you I mean decided it would jurors -- except in and what didn't what knew which one -- to rank. Well you know that you in the -- it and doctor Bill Murray they would turn it is. They knew that tropical but he did he turn that apparently agreed that they pay -- an opportunity. I have a or probably without that little storms. And -- You know -- when they look he basically -- met with similar but the point is going to be a process and the process and the jurors. It will -- people -- department Vietnam without an actual -- simply that. People -- -- -- -- about errors. All of that it was sort of -- it -- too big and apparently well so -- -- going you know I could go on a couple of cut it to prosecute those were professional.
