Murder is unique in that it abolishes the party it injures, so that society has to take the place of the victim and on his behalf demand atonement or grant forgiveness; it is the one crime in which society has a direct interest.I think that Dexter's rights were not uphelded because the prosecutors eliminated all the African-American jurors. That is very racist and they are not aloud to do that. They tried to make up excuses for why they eliminated them that were probably falsefied. Also, Randolph Stone lied in court when he swore to tell the truth and nothing but the truth so help him god. Dexter had nothing to do with this case and they were just out to get him. For the most part Dexter's rights were not upheld throughout this whole case.I think that his rights were not upheld because as you can see at first their were only four african american picked to be choosen from and then when it came to the pick for the final jury all the blacks were elimanated. That put Dexter in front of a jury of all white people which kind of put him in a awkward position.I do not think Dwight Dexter's constitutional rights were upheld because they let go of all the black jurors and Dwight was black himself. Some of the whites could have been racists or already have a mindset that he was guilty. I think it should be half and half just so it can be fairly equal. I believe Dwight is innocent but because of the discrimination, he just might be charged and incarcerated.
