The Jury:

Barbados is taking steps to strengthen the jury system while New Zealand will probably take two steps clearly meant to weaken it (having come to the conclusion that they can't trust some of the citizens all the time and all the citizens some of the time). You know, it's disturbing that a 13% hung jury rate would be attributed to a problem with the jury rather than (just perhaps) the prosecution not being able to prove its case adequately.
