The jury was instructed-- properly, because of the horrid SYG law-- to acquit.<quoted text> All of that is complete fabrication , You have me wondering if you are a black man , because no one but black men make those assumptions. The jury did not find any of that to be the case, so why would you? Do you hold privileged information that no one else does?
They had no choice, really.
No-- I'm not black-- not that it matters.
But laws **were** broken, but because he was white, he got to use SYG as a "Get Out Of Jail Free".
Fact: he **did** fire a gun within city limits. That's usually against city ordinances.
Fact: he **did** fire a gun with the intent to cause bodily harm-- that **is** against ordinances pretty much everywhere.
Fact: he **did** prematively decide to shoot his victim, making it premeditated murder, by the strictest definition of the term.
Fact: he **did** shoot and kill his victim-- that falls under the definition of murder pretty much anywhere.
Extenuating circumstances may or may not be applied in the above.
His defense was to use the SYG law-- so automatically goes free, for premeditated murder of an unarmed kid.
Had the kid been **white**? He'd likely be in jail.
Had he been black, and the kid white? He would be facing the death penalty.
Statistically-speaking, of course.
