Hoth: heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
Sirius A: I would have loved more time in the breakout rooms--this is a HUGE topic, and I think we had a hard time not feeling rushed. Appreciate how much feedback is taken seriously overall, though!
Deimos: Great class today! Thank you all. Loved Gaia and Anthony's comments at the end of class. Let's keep that going
Mars: Great class today. I liked Anthony's insights on the process of the grand jury. I didn't know the mechanics for how subpoena power was obtained. I liked Gaia's reflections too
Oberon: Gonna write-in Anthony and Gaia tomorrow
Malleore: I agree that more time in the breakouts would be good. Also possibly some time without any of the teaching team. Maybe the teaching team joins to get us going, then leave after a bit?
Darn Ruach: class was great today. I like the structure we are settling into and the discussions feel a lot more organized, balanced and forward moving
Utapau: I appreciated having Anthony in our break-out room because he was able to explain the relevant processes very clearly
Saturn: Our breakout room didn't have time to let everyone speak, and I felt like I had many things that I wanted to say but couldnt due to timing. If we want to keep the breakout rooms short it would be good to make them smaller
Sirius A: One idea for future: maybe invite John Gleeson to talk about grand jury? He teaches Complex Federal Investigations at HLS and is notoriously thoughtful about these issues.
Drakenborg: I really liked today's format - intro comments, half hour breakout rooms, half hour large group discussion. As always, Anthony came through with great background info
Luyten 726-8A: I liked the structure of class today. Agree with Drakenborg
Blackeye: Agree with Drakenborg
Neptune: Great class today! I look forward to discussing this further tomorrow.
Utapau: agree with Drakenborg
Milky Way: I liked today's structure as well!
Wolf 359: I liked today's structure, but would still advocate for smaller breakout rooms. Maybe anthony and gaia can rotate among them
Saturn: Agreed. The larger breakout rooms really stifle free discussion in my opinion
Tretogor: i think that the grand jury discussion is an important one but unfortunately it doesn’t cure the wrongs built into the system that some of us believe exists (excessive prosecutorial power, unfair plea bargaining system, etc.). Also i’m not sure Ms. Taylor’s case is the best one to really discuss the grand jury because 1. i think the real issue is with prosecutors over charging 2. the facts around that case are somewhat muddy and there has been a lot of what i would consider misinformation spread out on it. Either way, great discussion.
Neptune: I disagree. I think just a bit more time in the breakout room would help, but I really enjoy the 3 groups.
Dakara: I wish more people offered ideas of how to reform the grand jury and not speak as much to how bad it is. We all noticed in this case how bad it worked out, but there can either be a showing of how to reform or where it also worked.
P3X-888: Great class. I think the format of having three breakout rooms is helpful.
Neptune: I was one who spoke out about how bad it was because rather than reforming it, my opinion is that we need to abolish it.
Kashyyyk: I think there was too much time in the break out room and not enough time on threads. Also, there is no point in having us in a breakout room if there is not a TA there to push the conversation along, everyone will just sit there silently.
Kashyyyk: Breakout rooms have become nothing but an echo chamber, they have lost their function as a forum for discussion.
Dakara: @polaris, I appreciate your opinion and agree that one way to move forward is to abolish. I imagine that there are many other opinions as well and would love to hear them too.
Neptune: @Chulak I disagree. For a topic of this magnitude, I found the breakout rooms a much better forum for discussion compared to threads. Especially since we were covering a lot of the historical background.
Neptune: @Centaurus, I agree! I would love to hear more opinions on how to reform. I just meant that talking about the flaws still contributes to a productive conversation.
Blackeye: @Chulak I completely disagree.
Ross 248: I feel like because the Breonna Taylor case is such a hot button, emotional part of the zeitgeist, it makes it hard to have a substantive, law-based discussion surrounding it. I'm not saying anyone is super in favor of how things went, but there is just no way to try to cover grand jury, prosecutorial discretion, and the actual potential manslaughter charges in a balanced way. I get the response to this will be "there is no balance, it's just murder" and I feel like that's the exact issue we run into discussing this material
