Foster v. Chatman
Late 1980s a young man named Timothy Tyrone Foster, age 18 black African-Americans was charged with the murder of a white elderly woman named Queen White. During the court-martial, the persecuting attorney decided to use his Peremptory Strikes to remove all four black jurors.

If I were Supreme Court Justice, I want to make certain that no individual was being punished for a crime without enough evidence to convince an assembly of people that he or she is
