    Why are Texas juries so quick to deliberate and convict?

    Yesterday I read an article about a woman in Gun Barrel City, Texas who had a trial for Possession of Meth. According to the article, the jury deliberated for 7 seconds, that's right, seven seconds and came back with a guilty verdict. It seems to me that a person should at least get 30 seconds before they know their fate. I read about this kind of stuff all to often in Texas newspapers.

    Well when you see who Texas elected governor, and their irrational hatred of the federal government and gays, it's not surprising their belief forming processes may be a little off!

    Well, most of them kind of know how it's going to go before the deliberations start. They just kind of all agree over one matter. The first thing they do is take a vote to see what everyone thinks. Or they all agree just to get out of there and back to their jobs. It depends if one of them will be difficult or not.
    It happens 'round here, all the time.
