The Price Tag of Justice

Is this really news to anyone?

Practically everyone who followed the case felt like Scrushy was manipulating the jury through press and preachers. I have to admit that I've never before seen a rich white man successfully play the race card to a black jury.

But the most disturbing part of this whole case is that the pastors of the churches who supported Scrushy were apparently motivated to do so with money, whether it was given directly to the pastors or in donations to the church. What's worse is that these men are representatives of Christianity, and this is the message that they have sent.
