Manslaughter wasn't proven. Shows they aren't going for the original charge.

Peace

They are thinking manslaughter. Murder is off the table.
Obviously it's not an instant 'not guilty'

They are focused on manslaughter. (Jury) its a manslaughter question.

No to murder 2 looks highly likely.

Also, the body of Trayvon is at least 3 feet from the sidewalk. How do you reconcile that??


did you not hear GZ say he was squirming around trying to get off the concrete.
i know that you don't believe that.

but when your children fight. (if they do) do they stay in one spot?
have you ever watched anybody fighting that always stays in one spot?

Look, you are not a reasonable person. You throw all of these pre- and ill-conceived notions and assumptions into a crazy hypothetical.
I just read the post you're referring to and it sounds completely reasonable to me.

Can you separate emotion from the letter of the law? If a person feels their life is in danger, the law permits deadly force. It really doesn't matter what the scenario is as long as the shooter isn't in the commission of a crime.

How this work? Do they just say he is guilty for whatever reason and that's it? I don't know anything about court cases.

So obviously at least some of the jury is throwing the law out the window and is going on emotion alone. If they were sticking to the law, it would be an instant 'not guilty'. Anyways .. Manslaughter is in play.

Jury is now asking for a clarification on the instructions for "Manslaughter." Murder 2 is done with.......Verdict probably tonight. There are still three possibilities - Hung - Guilty - Not Guilty

Most think the question is if self defense applies to manslaughter.

Sure does.

I wonder what their question is about...

They cannot convict him of manslaughter if they find that the killing was in self-defense.

Looks like verdict by end of day once they get this question answered.

Otherwise they would have asked to call it a day IMO.

Peace

This is great. That to me means 2nd degree is off the table. Now they're seeing if what they believe he did fits into the manslaughter category.

I think the jury is being very thorough.

(He jury just came out and asked for clarification on manslaughter.. not good. Hope the clarification turns them against it. Or is to only show one or two people.


Sorryy, see that was already posted.

Awesome. Thanks for posting that.
If they follow what those Manslaughter instructions say, they have to find 'not guilty'.
