This legal term for “see what they say” describes the process of picking a jury, which is going on this week in the Bismarck Dinius case in Clear Lake, California.  The trial is still going forward despite the seemingly unending litany of prosecutorial and investigative misconduct on the part of the Lake County Sheriff and D.A., even with another revelation that the mysteriously vanishing 9-1-1 tapes of the initial accident have suddenly reappeared.

A new website with most of the pertinent info on the case has recently popped up, along with news that the Santa Clara Law School’s Northern California Innocence Project is taking on the case against Lake County’s obvious corruption.  The Anarchists are, in part, responsible for shining the light on this terrible situation in which a sailor faces manslaughter charges and the responsible party walks free – so keep turning the screws, and keep posted on how you can help in the thread.  The more noise that we create, the more likely it is that prospective jurors will hear about it, and set Dinius free.
