It's too much smoke and mirror nd no basic evidence against her.<quoted text>
Right! It seems that juries these days have turned "beyond a reasonable doubt" into "beyond ALL doubt". It isn't a prosecutor's burden to prove a case beyond all doubt.
Identifying what is "reasonable" entails one thing: asking the question, "Would I as a juror have to spin the facts in the defendant's favor in order to justify acquittal?" If the answer is "yes", then I have artificially increased the prosecution's burden and gone too far.
If the weight of the facts does not conclusively justify a conviction, the person should be acqutted; but a jury should never make ridiculous excuses for every little piece of evidence raised by the prosecution. That can go on forever. As the saying goes, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...it's a damn duck.
It's about he said she said only the girlfriend is feeling in the blanks. I had a friend get killed by his wife, they were fighting and the gun went off. The fighting in a family, is the family's business, people just don't get involved. I think the judicial system worked all right. No one is guilty until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Heresay and my way, how I wanted it to be just don't sway a judicial system. I just hope the teacher sells out an d leaves Jackson, gets a new life somewhere with the children.There ws never a question of her being a good mother, it wasn't her out crappin around gettin in trouble, if he had been a responsible man he would have been home with his wife and his kids doin the things families do...I don't think he took on saint hood after he got shot,people who go lookin for trouble, generally find it.
