In the Dark podcast: Supreme Court will hear Curtis Flowers’s appeal - Vox.com
The peremptory challenge has long been controversial because it may tacitly systematize racial discrimination; Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall favored its complete abolition.
And a 1986 Supreme Court case, Batson v. Kentucky, established that peremptory challenge cannot be used to discriminate against jurors based on race, ethnicity, or sex. But that's not always a guarantee of fairness.
In fact, in each of Flowers's first four trials, Evans used all of his juror "strikes," including his peremptory challenges, with the apparent intent to remove as many black jurors from the jury selection as he could.
Flowers's appeal of his latest 2010 conviction rests on this aspect of the case, and his petition minces no words about how Evans used peremptory challenges to racially discriminate against him:
Through the first four trials, prosecutor Doug Evans relentlessly removed as many qualified African American jurors as he could. He struck all ten African Americans who came up for consideration during the first two trials, and he used all twenty-six of his allotted strikes against African Americans at the third and fourth trials.
Two previous courts found that Evans's conduct violated Flowers's right to equal protection under the 14th Amendment. In fact, in 2007, the Mississippi state Supreme Court found that Evans's behavior represented "as strong [a] case of racial discrimination as we have ever seen in the context of a Batson challenge."
Now, the current appeal, which has reached the US Supreme Court, is arguing that the Mississippi state Supreme Court should have considered Evans's established history of using peremptory challenges to violate Flowers's rights when it upheld Flowers's 2010 conviction. It points out that Batson v. Kentucky explicitly orders courts to consider established patterns of discrimination by attorneys when they decide the merits of peremptory challenges.
Without taking this context into account, Flowers's lawyers argue, the "unintended message" the courts are sending to attorneys when they use peremptory challenges to discriminate is, "Just be careful to cover your tracks."
The rule that peremptory challenges can't be used to discriminate is well-established in judicial procedure. New Supreme Court appointee Brett Kavanaugh even wrote about the issue when he was a Yale law student; at the time, he argued that the defense team in a case should always be allowed to hear and rebut a prosecutor's peremptory challenges in order to prevent discrimination. In 2016, the Supreme Court issued a nearly unanimous decision upholding the Batson v. Kentucky precedent.
The current Supreme Court agreed to hear oral arguments in Flowers's case in an order issued on Friday. If the Court rules against Flowers's appeal, it would mark a surprising shift in the way courts are allowed to view peremptory challenges, which could in turn substantially alter the way peremptory challenges work during criminal proceedings. Such a shift would most likely work against the defendants who most need equal protection under the law.
However, if the Court finds in favor of Flowers, it has an opportunity to expand upon the previous rulings to strengthen the limits of the peremptory challenge and to compel lower... Nov 15, 2018

County Florists ready to help you “Say It With Flowers”
Today she works part-time as the preschool teacher for Marshall County Central Schools at Viking Elementary School and has arranged flowers at Nordisk Hemslöjd for two and one-half years.Nordisk Hemslöjd also purchases their flowers from Len Busch. Jenn has this to say about the supplier: “My brother-in-law used to work for Len Busch about 30 years ago when they were a much smaller operation. Now they have 15 acres of greenhouse in Plymouth, Minn. They also source flowers from around the world.”She says a small lily, the alstroemeria, is her favorite flower. “It is the flower of friendship and comes in many colors,” she explains.Her favorite part of being a florist is “choosing the flowers and putting them in a variety of arrangements…I also like the opportunity to speak to the customers and get a feel for what they would like to order.”Does Jenn have any suggestions for Valentine’s Day gift giving besides the obvious roses? “Besides roses for Valentine’s Day, I would recommend a mixed arrangement, perhaps with stargazer lilies, alstroemeria and roses.”What advice does she offer to Valentine’s Day shoppers? “I think flowers are the obvious choice for Valentine’s Day! If your budget allows, go big! But, if not, just a single flower or a wrapped bouquet will still say, ‘I love you.’ Be sure and keep flowers wrapped well when transporting them outside in the cold.”What changes has Jenn seen in the floral business over the years? “For many years, we used wedding bouquet holders, and now bridal bouquets are usually hand-tied. Silk wedding and prom flowers had kind of gone out of vogue for some time, but are now making a comeback.”Jenn is pleased that customers today don’t just buy flowers for special events. “I think flowers should be enjoyed all year long and not just on special occasions,” she says, “Even though I work with flowers, I don’t think I’ll ever stop enjoying them; they’re such a beautiful expression of God’s creativity.”Both Austin Flowers and Nordisk Hemslöjd sell a variety of other items, besides flowers, for Valentine gift giving, such as balloons, plants, candy, and plush animals.Both shops deliver in their local communities and surrounding areas.Say it with flowers this Valentine’s Day!

Roger Mercer: Some plants have wings to help imaginations fly
North Carolina conditions. I have been to some local garden centers but have not had success. — Katie Marshall in Orrum.Dear Katie: Eighteen excellent varieties of Rosa rugosa and its hybrids are offered by Heirloom Roses. The list of rugosas along with descriptions is available at https://www.heirloomroses.com/roses/rugosa-roses.html and the company’s other contact information includes the following: Heirloom Roses, 4062 NE Riverside Drive, St. Paul, Oregon 97137 The phone number is 800-820-0465.Rugosa roses, as you suggest, are so tough they are nearly indestructible. They make plenty of suckers, or offshoots, and they are always creeping out of the rose beds. All that's necessary to have more is to dig off a sucker.As to varieties, I am especially fond of ‘Rubra,’ Blanc Double de Coubert,’ ’Topaz Jewel,’ ‘Hansa’ and ‘Alba.'Many varieties are still in bloom now and are the showiest and most strongly perfumed plants in any rose garden. ‘Rubra' is a single rose. `Hansa,’ is a very double hybrid, as is ‘Blanc Double de Coubert.’ 'Topaz Jewel’ is a light, dull yellow, but unique in color among the rugosas.Dear Roger: You incorrectly identified the anemones at St. John's Episcopal Church as Anemone blanda. They are Anemone coronaria. — Knowledgeable in Fayetteville.Dear Knowledgeable: You're right. I goofed. I've grown both, so I can tell you the blandas are smaller, delicate flowers, usually in shades of blue, white or occasionally pink.The coronarias are a florist strain developed in southern France. They have larger, brilliant colored flowers in blue, red and white.Another florist strain from France that I've grow is called De Caen. Its flowers are intermediate in size between blanda and coronaria, but the flowers are double and have the bright colors of the coronarias.All are good garden plants in the Cape Fear region. The coronarias and De Caen strain prefer very mild winters, like those in the south of France. Blanda is hardier and requires more cold to perform well.All should be soaked in warm water for about an hour before planting, which can be done in either spring or fall. Do not soak in liquid fertilizer, and never fertilize the plants heavily. They prefer open, sunny sites with light, well drained soil. Avoid heavy mulches.Send your questions and comments to Roger at email@example.com or call 424-4756. You may write to Roger at 6215 Maude St., Fayetteville, N.C. 28306...
