As for how this even happened?
Our current justice system allows the accused the right to a jury trial. This jury trial should be selected from societal members that have not shown
bias toward the case.
When I first tuned into CNN that night, I had not even heard of the case, so it was easy for me to be without prejudice. During the commerical
breaks, before the verdict was announced, I quickly searched the web for anything I could find relating to the murder. The details appeared sketchy;
however, I was under the impression that surely enough evidence was there (video surveillance, eyewitnesses in the SUV, shooter never called police)
to quickly convict Dunn on the Murder...
there was SOMETHING that a juror (or two) could not agree on about the shooting.
Perhaps it was because since the charge was Murder 1, they had to show pre-meditation, which was not there.
Perhaps it was because the video showed the teens taunting Dunn in a malicious way as to be preceived as a physical threat.
Just as with the Trayvon Martin case, I never take the media's spin on the facts. I gather them from the trial; thus I have always supported George
Its not that I support Dunn in this one, but that I know that we obvioulsly were not privy to some of the details.
