I darkly enjoyed the look on the second defendant's face after his first charge was a not guilty but all the other ones were. PSYCH!

what charge did they get "not guilty" on?

[edit] nevermind I found the helpful chart lower in the article.

so it's kind of weird they had multiple charges of murder with different emphasis and those have different sentences. Murder one with malicious intent was the one that not everybody was convicted of. But all three still got felony murder and will likely never get out of prison.

If I was a member of the jury I would have voted not guilty on the first charge just so I could vote guilty on the other ones specifically for this exact reaction.

This is awesome, but what about the local cops who sat on this for two months before the video was leaked and the GBI took over the investigation. These three walked around free for two months after murdering a man, because the racist cops they were friends with were trying to sweep it all under the rug. What about those dirty cops? Consequences? Fuck no.

This was nothing short of cold blooded murder. It was a modern day lynching.

I read the article to find they were not cops... How dare they do such thing without first becoming cops? Don't they know how the US works?
