Bloggers Sound Off On Wright Trial

April 6, 2007, 4:04 PM by Kelli Grant

Bloggers Sound Off On Wright Trial
The Daphne Wright murder trial is getting more than just media attention. Internet bloggers from all over the country have something to say. And the deaf community is turning to their computers to voice their opinion on the jury, the evidence, and the suspect. 

Internet Blogging has changed the way people communicate. It's allowing bloggers to follow news across the country. And right now, they're following it to South Dakota. 

One blogger questions executing a deaf criminal. She states she doesn't know Wright, nor does she know anyone who does. But she writes for Daphne to be fairly judged, the jury selection should choose people whose background is similar to Daphne's. She also writes quote the "Next best thing to a Deaf jury are expert witness evaluators who are Deaf themselves." 

Several bloggers respond to these statements, one writing that the Deaf will have to initiate such changes.
Just this week a deaf blogger writes, quote "Since Wright continues denying the murder, I think she should be given more time being observed by deaf psychiatrists, not the hearing ones with interpreters." 

Other bloggers plead to South Dakotans to help Wright out. One blogger writes that people in the Deaf community aren't incompetent and deserve a fair trial. 

And a blogger from the deaf community in Maryland criticizes not having an African American in the jury and not having a certified Deaf interpreter in the courtroom.
