Papa Paul,  I presume your question about the objective of jury selection is
a bit facetious. The objective by both sides is to get jurors most likely to
be sympathetic to their respective causes, not jurors who will come to a
logical or "fair" conclusion. In most cases, education and an appearance of
intelligence will get you challenged by defense attorneys representing guilty
defendants. I'm in favor of some type of professional juries.
