It is devastating to acknowledge the fact that we live in a country where the killing of a deer is a punishable offence, while the murderer of an innocent girl goes scot free!! It is a mockery of our judicial system to say the least. which seems to be blind in more ways than one and open to manipulation by the high-profiled and wealthy i guess u all know i m talkin abt jessica lal murder case it was media who helped 2 solve the case n we are sayin that media is killing judicial activities strange isn't???

When did this happen? Can you show me where you saw this? Either way it doesn't support your position.

Anyway, all I have to do is give one example of how the media is killing a judicial activity. Jury selection is a judicial activity. Through the media, people form a biased opinion on a crime, thus rendering them ineligible for jury duty. So the media is killing jury selection.

OK, so I found a news story (although not great coverage, it's still enough): http://www1.timesofindia.indiatimes.com...

Here, it seems that the verdict was at the fault of the prosecution. The police force did a terrible job of getting witnesses. Since all evidence used must be in a court, the defendant(s) is/are "innocent until proven guilty", and the prosecution provided no solid testimonies, how can you expect the judicial system to rule in their favor?

My point about jury selection still remains uncontested.

Mandatory spelling and grammar tests should be required before being able to join this website.

The only thing I can think of is trying to put the blame on something else. If you can convince the judges that something else is killing judicial activities, then they won't think about the media.
