Mattapan verdict shows jury system works

Jury deliberations in the Mattapan massacre trial were not pretty. From what we’ve learned since Thursday, it’s clear that the men and women deciding the fates of two accused murderers were fully human.

Deciding whether Dwayne Moore and Edward Washington murdered four people, including a toddler, on a Mattapan street in 2010, one juror seems to have been convinced early on that she could not vote to convict Moore. There was yelling and swearing in the jury room as others tried to change her mind.
