  1. Emily S. says

    Is it because a 100 years ago, juries were only male property owners, and they’re more likely to think they would have reacted in violence, as opposed to say, an elderly person or a woman, who would think they would not have responded in violence?

    I mean, obviously that’s not the only reason, and our culture has shifted away from war and violence in the past century, but I feel like that must be part of it. I mean, no matter how angry I was, I would never kill (or even attack or hit) another person (and I think the majority of women feel the same way), but some men don’t seem to think that way, and do fight to resolve conflicts, and I feel like that mindset in males was even more common and accepted 100 years ago as well.
