I don't get it

The LA assault case!

So the only guy to be sentenced is the one who made the video?

You see the man beating up the kid, geee, I wonder if he did it.

The incident is not reported, but it's clear on the tape that it happened. Gee, I wonder if the officer filed a false report...

And if a jury is plit 7/5, doesn't that mean they have a majority and therefore a verdict?

Everything you do continues long after you've gone

Basically, a jury has to be unanimous.

I don't know the American system but in Belgium the jury decides with a majority vote. In case of a 6/6 the verdict is not guilty, in case of a 7/5 it's up to the judges to add their votes.

the whole thing is absolutely disgusting. i think some of the jurors were paid off and the prosecutors just didnt give one shit about the case. how can anyone let those fuckers go? its on TAPE!

police get away with far too much, its time to stop it.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

In America, it has to be unanimous.

and the same thing happened in the Rodney King case 11 years ago. It has to do with desensitation (if you see someone gettin' their ass kicked repeatedly, it has no effect on you over time) and the feeling that the kid did something to deserve the beating. You could also add race to the equation.
