Several members of the jury of 10 men and two women wiped away tears during victims’ testimony. Some of the men on the jury appeared upset, shook their heads and stared sternly at Turner during parts of the trial.

These girls lives? What about the boys, again discounted by the mentality of the system.

The article doesn't say. It might be the fault of some editor. The email address of the author of the story is:

sgoldstein@dallasnews.com

There is a little more information here (maybe):

He is he worst of the worst and that is an understatement, He redefines words that we use to talk about bad people.

We call bad people monsters, That’s not scary enough for him. We call bad people nightmares, that’s not dark enough for him.
