Sounds to me like they wanted to have a shot at both sides. Convict but not take any responsibility for convicting. If you are not convinced then you vote not guilty. You two are adults, if you didn't want to convict then you stand your ground !!! Grow up
They got scared

These women just got scared and know what they did was right. They just made their selfs look stupid!!! This was not a racial or abuse case. It is about someone wanting to protect our community that had no rights to. He is a convicted felon and has done several things wrong. Time to grow up and take responsibility for your actions. Can't always try to screw the system over, cuz it will catch up to you....For the two ladies grow up and try not to act better than thow art....you made your self look like asses...hehaw

Monticello is one big corrupted village, it's all about shakedowns and everything has a price, maybee this guy is innocent on this charge alone but the big picture is corruption, and that's why nothing is happening in this village, it looks like Camden or east Cleveland or Detroit for a reason , just drive by Monticello and look for yourself, it' looks bombed out with more abandoned buildings then you could count
