Biased verdicts are inevitable

To the editor of THE EAGLE:

Verdicts will never, ever, be truly fair unless they are decided by a computer, not by a jury of people.

People have too many emotions. They are racist, biased, and many base their verdicts on opinions. Computers could be fed the facts of a case and only the facts -- no color or creed, or sexual orientation. No one’s opinions or emotions would cloud the decision.

As long as there is prejudice in the world, verdicts will never be fair. That’s a fact!
