just don't shoot into a car and make sure your intended victim is alone. That's what the jury in the 'loud music' trial just said.
I'm outraged. This is a huge travesty, an abomination, a total miscarriage of justice, in every way, shape and form.
It doesn't matter that this guy - Dunn - will likely spend the rest of his life in prison due to the convictions on the lesser counts.
Give a lot of the blame to the prosecutors, who mysteriously went for first degree murder, as if Dunn parked at that convenience store with the express intent to commit murder. This was the easiest prosecution I've ever seen, and Corley and Guy (the same crew that bungled the Martin murder) ought to be fired.
I suspect that the jury - like in the Martin murder trial - had difficulty lowering the bar from murder to manslaughter, and in the end just gave up and took the easy way out.
'I thought I saw a gun.' That WORKS! Just as long as the victim is a young black male.
Sickening. Just sickening. I can only hope the prosecutor's office will clean house (not likely because Angela Corley is boss in that office) and get their shit together to re-try the case.
Have we no sense of justice left? Is this where our country is headed?
This is horrible, just horrible.
