Dallas cop convicted of murder in mistaken apt. case
yep, jury got it right.... c-l-e-a-r-l-y
^^^ I agree.
I heard about the case, but I wasn’t in the court room and heard all the facts. I don’t know why these always turn into a race discussion. One human being lost their life, another was responsible. Jury found her guilty beyond reasonable doubt.
I'm a little surprised only that I thought the DA had over reached and should have gone with manslaughter. You only need 1 or 2 people on the jury to believe her when she said she accidentally went the wrong apartment, blah blah blah, and there was a guy there.
I'm glad because there won't be any unrest afterwards. But I really thought they were going to find her not guilty and then they're all bets would have been off out the street.
I think of it this way...
If someone else mistakenly walked into the officer's apartment and shot her, would a Murder charge even be in debate?
Of course there would have been. You listen to too many talking points of the agenda driven media. If she wasn't a cop murder would have never been on the table.
IMO this was manslaughter. I wasn't sitting with the jury so I guess I'm ok with what they decided, like that maters
I also think manslaughter would have been more in line as there was no plan to kill him, it was a accident.
problem with being a juror is they dont get all the facts. only the facts allowed to be given by the lawyers and judge. weather its 100%. you really.dont know. my wife was on a jury for a 1st degree murder and even though they found the guy guilty, it wasnt til after the trial they were filled in with the stuff that wasn't allowed. After hearing the "other" stuff they were happy they convicted the guy. before, they all felt sorry for the convict.
But a person walking into the wrong apt shooting someone by accident sounds like ma slaughter. jim
It was a mistake that cost someone their life, but it was done without malice given the information I have seen. Manslaughter would have been a more suitable charge. I don't think race should ever be mentioned in legal proceedings unless it can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that it was a factor.
