Study suggests underrepresentation of minorities among jury pools
CAROLINE GRUESKIN Bismarck Tribune
Jul 16, 2016
Minority groups are underrepresented among potential jurors in Burleigh and Morton counties, preliminary findings from a study of the state's jury system suggest.
The disparities raise concerns about the fairness of jury trials in a state where minorities are arrested and imprisoned at disproportionate rates, according a 2012 state report on racial and ethnic bias in the courts.
In order to address potential disparities, the Minority Justice Implementation Committee, which ordered the study, is looking at ways to expand the list of people eligible to serve and include people who may not vote or drive.
"At this stage, it is safe to say we're underrepresented. There is still a question of to what degree," said Ross Munns, assistant trial court administrator for south central and southwest North Dakota, who is conducting the study. Read more >
From Sand Creek to Dallas, and from brutality to grace

The recent killings in Louisiana, Minnesota and Texas have turned us all into amateur theologians and moral philosophers, presenting us with questions we could not evade or dismiss:
How can human beings hold such opposite capacities — for acts of grace and for acts of brutality?
And when the brutality has been unleashed, how do we acknowledge the loss and injury in a way that might tilt the balance back to grace?
If we approach these questions with a commitment to think deeply in time, our minds and souls could be enriched and strengthened, and our despair will be leavened with hope. Read more >
Lloyd Omdahl: Indian Country needs a strong economic system
MONDAY, JULY 18, 2016
Lloyd Omdahl, a former lieutenant governor of North Dakota who has questioned the way tribes handle their own affairs and criticized federal oversight of Indian Country, calls for a major rebuilding effort on reservations in order to spur economic development and other opportunities:
A Marshall Plan for reservations would be a great benefit for Native Americans but it would also be good for all of North Dakota to have vibrant economies and societies on reservations.
We have kept Native Americans dependent at a cost that has been staggering for both Native Americans and taxpayers. It will continue to be a chronic tax burden until we start thinking of economic development on reservations as investments rather than expenses. Read more >
