"Body cameras are an important part of the solution," said Harland Dorrinson, who is lobbying Washington to equip grand juries with the sense of sight. "But I strongly believe that if you take video evidence and add eyes, the combination would be...

Once again Andy is so close to the truth, he's almost not funny. But if we can't laugh, we're in even deeper trouble...loved the part about adding working brains, too.

It's preferable to have a brain than eyes.

*Sits on Santa's lap* Okay, I won't lie and say I've been a good girl all year. But I'm better than these jokes on Grand Juries that allow murderers to go free. All I want for Christmas is to get rid of Grand Juries completely. If that is not possible, I will settle for renaming them. They is nothing GRAND about them. They should be renamed the STUPID juries.

It's a good thing you add ~ THE BOROWITZ REPORT ~ SATIRE to your title, otherwise we might have mistaken it for the report of a real suggestion. LOL Come to think of it...it should have been a real suggestion.

Think Brains would be better...seems they have nothing upstairs to make rational decisions with.

Thanks for the dose of Andy, Carrie. But, it is a bit confusing when learning that Grand Juries did indict all of the cases prior to the recent ones. So, I'm wondering if it was the way they were "instructed," or something else......Many have placed blamed on prosecutors. Since they have to work with the police forces, they can't be seen as anti-law enforcement. This is where the federal gov't must step in.
A few have spoken about the fact that officers have been trained not only in these military-type techniques; but also trained to respond with excessive force. Major systemic change is definitely in order.
