UNANIMOUS JURY BILL:  A bill to allow Louisiana voters to decide whether juries in felony cases must return unanimous verdicts — as they do in 48 other states — is gaining support as yesterday  the House Criminal Justice committee debated and approved the measure by Sen. JP Morrell – Democrat from New Orleans. 

He said "The non-unanimous jury was part of a process in our official journal,where it was said 'the mission of this convention was to establish the supremacy of the white race in the state."
