Zine review: 404 not found #2

40 pp / $1

Pleasant Hill CA 94523

Serving on a jury is a public service that most Americans are eligible for (even obligated to do) and that few will actually experience. Author David Hatton dissects his time as a juror in a murder trial (The People v. Reginald D. Robinson). In clear language David recounts the facts of the case (the charges, the victim, circumstances) and outlines both the prosecution and defense arguments. As the zine progressed I found myself drawn into the legal proceedings. I live a good mystery and this case, built largely on circumstantial evidence, had some remarkable elements. While I would have appreciated knowing a little more about the jury deliberation / decision making process, overall 404 not found #2 is a very informative zine.
