Quote from Phillip Finch 

"A criminal trial is not a search for truth.
It is much too circumscribed for that.
Rather, a trial is a formalized contest for
the hearts and minds of a panel of twelve.
It is a quest for a verdict in which information
is selected and screened (we can almost say “processed”)
before it is allowed to reach jurors."
