Hard for people accused of crimes to get a fair trial

If you read this article it raises a good point that needs to be further examined. If someone who is a self proclaimed liberal has a hard time being objective about crime after they have been a victim can they ever be a fair juror in a criminal trial? Is a coercive question from a judge or prosecutor asking the prospective juror if they can be fair and impartial really getting to the bottom of that person’s prejudices. Its worth thinking about.
