Study: Male Jurors More Likely
To Find Overweight Women Guilty

CBS Connecticut, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 1/15/2013 6:03:31 PM

New Haven, Conn. – Male members of a jury are more likely to find a defendant guilty if the accused person is an overweight female. According to a recent study by Yale University psychologists, male – and not female – jurors are also more inclined to believe that a fat woman is a repeat offender who had malicious intent. The researchers gathered a group of 471 pretend peers of varying body sizes and described to them a case of check fraud. They also presented them with one of four images—either a large man, a lean man, a large woman

Totally bogus junk science presented as legitimate research. This assumes that the jury after hearing the facts will vote based on sex and body size. So why have a trial if men don´t listen to evidence or any other facts presented? ASNd check fraud isn´t always pure and simple so facts and evidence do matter (except to men according to this study).

Well... they are supposed to weigh the evidence carefully.

This may have something to do with oral arguments.

Guys have long memories for that.

As someone who does research, I´ll tell you: it´s always easier and more glamourous if you can sensationalize your results into something that CBS would pick up and carry on the nightly news.

No #13, because overweight women don´t use a penis to think with. I find studies like this of interest and while all may not be useful a good deal of them are. A friend sat on a ´´fake jury´´ sometime ago. The defense was trying to establish whether the plan they had set out would work with the average Joe, and Joan. I don´t remember all the details now, but she found it very interesting, and somewhat disturbing, when the information was shared with them at the end. Unfortunately there were generalisations that could not be ignored.

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro took part in the opening of the Hugo Chávez Museum located in San Carlos de la Cabaña fortress, Havana. The ceremony was held within the framework of the Second Presidential Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States, (Celac). "Chávez was the warrior of the light, the warrior of ideas who found the lost paths," said Maduro during the opening ceremony attended by several heads of state, including the presidents of Uruguay, José "Pepe" Mujica; Bolivia, Evo Morales; and Cuba´s Raúl Castro.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Mayor Bill de Blasio may have harshly criticized New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for his administration’s recent “bridgegate” scandal, but for one night, at least, it was all water under the bridge. The pair kicked off this weekend’s Super Bowl festivities with a joint appearance in Jersey City last night. And if Mr. de Blasio had any lingering harsh feelings about the alleged traffic shutdown over the George Washington Bridge, he certainly didn’t show it.

CHILPANCINGO, Mexico – Hundreds of armed men belonging to community self-defense groups occupied eight small towns near Chilpancingo, capital of the southern Mexican state of Guerrero, and detained a dozen suspected extortionists, a spokesperson for the vigilantes said. The action was taken due to the “federal government’s poor response” in ensuring the security of the state’s inhabitants, Gonzalo Torres, a coordinator of the Citizen Safety and Justice System, or SSyJC, organization, said Friday. The vigilantes said they seized control of the towns, all part of the municipality of Chilpancingo, because their residents are the victims of criminal gangs that extort and kidnap

Socialism: The huge currency devaluations that hit Venezuela and Argentina last week could be seen coming a mile away. This is a warning to the U.S. about big-government spending policies financed by printing money. The markets have given a resounding vote of no confidence to many emerging-market currencies, triggering sell-offs as far flung as Turkey, Russia and South Africa. But nowhere were the losses as catastrophic as those in two socialist Latin American countries that have thumbed their noses at fiscal discipline, ruthlessly used printed cash to expand their states and treated their citizens as cash cows, gleefully chasing out thousands of

Argentina is considering the purchase from Israel of 18 multipurpose combat aircraft Kfir Block 60 after negotiations with Spain for 16 Mirage F1 fighter bombers fell through, according to a report from Buenos Aires daily Clarin. Apparently Israel´s offer has been on the Defense minister Agustin Rossi´s desk since some time but only resurfaced sometime back in September following on the frustrated deal with Spain. Clarin also mentions that news of the negotiations between the Argentine ministry of defense and Israel´s Aero-spatial Industry, IAI, which manufactures the Kfir Block 60, caused ´concern´ in the British government since it is

CARACAS, Venezuela — President Nicolas Maduro has a new villain as he campaigns to bring down Venezuela’s spiraling crime: TV soap operas. He accuses them of spreading “anti-values” to young people by glamorizing violence, guns and drugs. The criticism follows attacks last year by Maduro on violent video games and the Hollywood movie “Spider-Man.” On Monday night, his vice president, Jorge Arreaza, met with broadcast and pay TV operators to review the prime-time lineup, warning that they could be in violation of a 2004 law mandating “socially responsible” programming. The two sides will meet in a week with the aim of drafting an agreement

Hypocrisy: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has effectively declared that anyone who holds a pro-life position should leave the state. Yes, he backtracked later. But this is Exhibit A of the extremism habitually seen on the left.

Conservatives, he opined, should just leave. "Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are?" Cuomo wondered.

Obama won’t give it up. If you also suffered through the State of the Union address, you heard him praise Obamacare, claim he would slash bureaucracy, and of course, fight for income equality. Obama pandered to the ladies, his tone becoming more passionate with every overly emotional word: Today, women make up about half our workforce. But they still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. That is wrong, and in 2014, it’s an embarrassment. A woman deserves equal pay for equal work. You have probably heard that statistic—77 cents on the dollar. Speech after speech from the left side of town

It’s certainly not the first time a politician has walked out during a live interview. But what happened next is shocking even to the most jaded observer. After Stotto returns to his report, Rep.
