The McVeigh Trial

With the Oklahoma City bombing trial about to begin, many observers are questioning whether defendant Timothy McVeigh—the subject of intense media scrutiny for nearly two years—can get a fair trial before an unbiased jury. What do you think?
  • "What's so hard about giving him a fair trial? If he floats, he's a witch. Case closed."

    Mitchell Dyer
    Systems Analyst
  • "I think the biggest threat to McVeigh's getting a fair trial is the fact that he blew up that federal building in Oklahoma City."

    Ron Young
  • "It's the trial of the century! Or, at least, this year's trial of the century. Okay, this year's second trial of the century."

    Ken Francona
  • "America should have a permanent supply of 12 people encased in lucite for just such occasions."

    Ellen Sakata
  • "Even if he did set off that bomb, who's to say those people wouldn't have blown up anyway?"

    Harriet Mortimer
  • "Maybe he can plea-bargain down to 16,000 counts of littering and mishandling biological waste."
