Baltimore City police officer William Porter stood before a courtroom full of prospective jurors as his trial began. Porter is the first of six police officers to go on trial for the death of Freddie Gray.
After some preliminary questions were asked of the jury pool individual void dire moved into chambers so there was not much to sketch, especially as the jurors are not to be identified.
Around half-past noon one of the jurors in the back of the courtroom stood up to get the bailiff’s attention. He pointed to the clock above his head, and then to his belly indicating that he felt it was time for lunch. He also motioned that he would like a cigarette break. Lucky for him the court soon adjourned for lunch.
