    the harness and vest were not the issue.  the central issue is that the witnesses upon whom the core of the prosecution's case depended, made mistakes in both their perception and their certainty.  they did this in front of us with evidence that we could examine for ourselves in order to assess their reliability.

    the state did not clearly demonstrate the charge of battery, as defined by the law because the state's evidence and testimony conflicted one another.

    the defence did not not win that case, the prosecution failed to construct a solid, coherent case.

    we couldn't say 'innocent' and probably would not have.  but, neither could we say 'guilty' on the merits of the evidence we were given.
