To feel the full force of Ramsey's statement, you have to know something about the history of race relations in this nation and in particular about the role that white woman have played -- or been made to play -- in the incrimination and lynching of black men.
The Jodi Arias trial reminded me of the first "Trial of the Century" which I had anchored for CNN nearly two decades before. The OJ Simpson criminal trial ushered in a new era of cameras in the courtroom and TV trial addicts.

American's are stunned by the horrific acts of Josh Powell. The accused murderer took his own life and the lives of his two beautiful sons Charles, 7, and Braden, 5 in a bloody inferno.
We don't weep for Sandusky. As do all "commentators," we have the right to "personally" convict him based on our own idiosyncratic views of the case. But why has the public convicted him at this early stage?
