In regards to the jury, it is definitely biased but unfortunately the Supreme Court ruled in McCleskey that in order to be granted an appeal or mistrial, it is the responsibility of the defense to prove that there was discrimination during the jury selection which lead to an all white jury. You could try contacting the ACLU to see if they have any resources you can connect with. I know it's really hard right now and all you hear is 30 years but if he doesn't lose any good time then he will discharge in 15 years and he might be home before then with parole. Good luck to you and your man! I hope he is granted an appeal and given a fair trial.
