Policeman shoots security officer and is acquitted July 2, 2007

Posted by Al in : bizarre,people,video , trackback

Ubbelievably, this police officer was acquitted, after shooting a man he has told at gunpoint to get up not just once, but three times! You can read more about the trial and the reason why the jurors said “Not guilty” here. If I were on that jury I would probably have felt a little bit lenient if only one shot had been fired, but three is a bit beyond an accident, or a nervous reaction. And, as a side note, how bad is the racial tension in the USA that newspapers feel they have to give the racial mix of the jury?
