Whatever happened to Brian Nichols

He's enjoying his taxpayer funded life in prison....fine food, which is probably required due to lawsuits by the ALCU, a nice room, warm bed, access to TV, books, exercise yard, etc. No duties, just rare back and wait for the next hot meal. Meanwhile, the lives of 5-6 families that were affected by his murders have had their lives ruined and will never recover.

I thought he had a day in court, was it a hung jury, I have to research. But I agree, these families will never be the same.

It was jury nullification, just like what allowed OJ to kill and get away with it.

He probably has found allan, a boy friend, and a case of AIDS. I understand a lot of these muslims in prison are gay. After reading some of the posts on this forums he is probably a hero to a bunch of black criminals for this killing of whites. The people who post the incognizance posts advocating police should be killed are as brain dead as him. These warped bunch of half wits now have a hero.

Inbred Retard, do you even know what jury nullification is? Maybe you should do some research before you go running your mouth. Nichols was found guilty. One juror held out on the death penalty so he got 4 life terms instead. That is the law in Georgia. That is not jury nullification.

So that one renegade juror didn't nullify what the other 11 had agreed on? Are you with the ACLU?

No that is not the definition of jury nullification.

Jury nullification occurs when a jury reaches a verdict contrary to the weight of evidence.[1] Widely, it is any rendering of a verdict by a trial jury contrary to the letter of the law—that is, of an official rule, and especially a legislative enactment. Jury nullification need not disagree with the instructions by the judge—which concern what the law (common or otherwise) is—but it may rule contrary to an instruction requiring the jury to apply the law to the defendant in light of the facts in the permissible evidence.

In Georgia a death penalty verdict must be unanimous with all 12 jurors voting in favor. That is the law. Nothing was nullified. One juror held out. Which is not that uncommon. Defendant was given life instead. That is the law.

No problem, we had a similar problem with Leo Frank, and managed to get it handled properly. Don't bet the farm that Wikipedia is always the last word.

And why do you suppose that 1 juror held out? There was a huge preponderance of evidence, video, eye witnesses, out the ying yang, but apparently one juror wanted to help out a brotha, and justice was not served. but honkies didn't riot, ala Rodney King, so we got that going for us, which is nice.

Yeah but you didn't have the Anti-Defamation League or the American Civil Liberties Union to deal with. Or many other organizations I could list. In short you people might have gotten away with that crap a century ago but if you try it now you will be sorry. And you can count on that.

Wikipedia is the best source there is. All articles are run by consensus. Not whatever a bunch of rightwing nuts want to write. No better source on the internet.

If you had read the case you would know there were many questions about his mental illnesses. Nobody wants to put somebody to death if they might be insane. Even if they just convicted them.

The fact that he turned himself in peacefully and didn't hurt Ashley Smith even though he clearly could have. Those things resonate with jurors. They are called mitigating factors. You don't know anything about the law, do you?

No I don't know anything about the law...he should have been given a fair trial, then hung the next day. The fact that you are defending him, tells me all I need to know about you.

Anyone that believes a murder like Brian Nichols is a victim needs a lobotomy to increase their IQ. You need help, BTW did you attend school in Atlanta?
