I think your first paragraph covers it. It's beyond comprehension.The thing that strikes me about this case is that a group of men are allowed to unofficially patrol the streets by the police, with high powered firearms, in the midst of a large scale protest.
It's not surprising that something tragic happened as a result.
I have to say though that I'm not entirely surprised by the verdiect, given the circumstances - I certainly don't think it was a cut-and-dried case, given what I've read about the case at least.
Would it have been the same trial if one or all of the dead guys was black? I think he’d probably be going to jail.
Absolutely agree.I think your first paragraph covers it. It's beyond comprehension.
It certainly wasn't a clear cut case, but only because of the astonishing laws around guns. As other have said though if he was black he'd have been shot dead at the time, or found guilty
