In a two-part series the Chicago Reporter examines "the racial composition of juries in Cook County, and how the racial make-up of juries might affect their verdicts." The first part reveals that whites and suburbanites are selected to serve on juries in numbers disproportinately high, according to demographic analysis of the county's population. The major finding in the second part is that all-white juries more often reached guilty verdicts for black defendants than juries that included at least three people from mostly black neighborhoods.
