    Frank Rose, if SYG principles have been found in the transcript of the instructions to the jury, and you can read, then you might want to shift your statement that SYG wasn't a factor in the jury room, and thus in the trial outcome.

    Or, if you have ears, you can heed what two jurors recalled about the law as written and as applied by that jury, law which changed culpability due to SYG.

    Or, you can just deny the facts. And I can take that into consideration when I see your name around here.

    Two jurors said SYG made a difference in their own verdict.  Both were disturbed about it, Frank.
