From Scott Alexander
The question is not, do you think Jerry Sandusky is guilty? In light of the reported testimony at his trial and yesterday’s news that his adopted son has gone to authorities claiming he was abused too, it’s hard not to convict Sandusky in the court of public opinion.
The question is rather, will the jury convict Sandusky? Did the prosecution do enough to exceed the threshold of reasonable doubt in the minds of the jurors?
For those of you still wrestling with the verdict in the Casey Anthony case, here’s another one for you to predict. Final question is, will you be right on this one?
