mistrial means they can try again with a new jury, right?

if so, maybe there's hope in that the jury was 11/12 white, and only one didn't want to convict

Yes, I believe with a mistrial, a new trial is the usual, unless the prosecution declines. I don't know the law in this jurisdiction.

As to hope, I suppose, but it's just as possible the new jury would include s similar individual. Hopefully the prosecution will take this opportunity to choose the jurors more carefully and to present a more effective case.
Are we there yet?

In Bakersfield, CA - Police Kill 73 year old man who was unarmed, suffering from dementia, and holding a crucifix

Quote
TheDailyBeast.com
A California man believed to be armed was found to be carrying just a wooden crucifix after police shot him dead early Monday morning, according to local media reports. Bakersfield Assistant Police Chief Lyle Martin said officers responded to a report of a man acting strangely. Officers had been told that he was holding a revolver. When they arrived, Francisco Serna, a 73-year-old who was struggling with dementia,  allegedly failed to respond to orders that he stop walking toward them and take his hands out of his jacket pocket. Seven officers responded to the scene, and one of those officers, identified as Reagan Selman, fired seven shots at Serna, CNN reports. Serna died at the scene. He was unarmed, officers later learned he was carrying the religious object. His daughter, Laura Serna, told a local CNN affiliate that police "murdered my father for no reason." Martin told reporters, "This is a tragic incident for their family, for the community as a whole, and for the police department."

Holy fuck, that is bizarre. Do police depts even have any kind of screening these days? Or do they actively recruit sociopaths?

you don't need to actively recruit people who are naturally attracted to certain kinds of jobs.

So what do these Executive Actions do, other than talk tough?

"First, I'm directing Department of Justice & Homeland Security to undertake all necessary and lawful action to break the back of the criminal cartels that have spread across our nation and are destroying the blood of our youth and other people, many other people,"
They've been holding back heretofore?
Quote
"Secondly, I'm directing Department of Justice to form a task force on reducing violent crime in America...
Oh! A task force! Well then.
Quote
"And thirdly, I'm directing the Department of Justice to implement a plan to stop crime and crimes of violence against law enforcement officers."
"implement a plan"?  What plan might that be?

Quote
"It's a shame what's been happening to our great, truly great, law enforcement officers," Trump said. "That's going to stop, as of today."
Really.
"Today"
How is that going to work?

Force of will.  It's how all the other EO's have been "actionated".

Protesters gather in Anaheim over LAPD officer firing gun during confrontation with teens

Quote
A 13-year-old boy is accused of threatening to shoot the off-duty officer, at which time the officer attempted to detain the boy until Anaheim police arrived, Wyatt said. That led to a physical confrontation between the officer and several other juveniles.

At that time, the officer, who hasn't been identified, discharged his gun once.

The 13-year-old was booked at Orange County Juvenile Hall on suspicion of criminal threats and battery. A 15-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of assault and battery and released to his parents.

The off-duty officer had not been arrested, and a criminal investigation into the incident was underway. The LAPD's Force Investigation Division is also looking into the altercation and the officer has been placed on administrative leave, the LAPD said.

Basically young girl walks across off-duty cop's yard.  Off-duty cop calls her a "cunt".  13 year old boy calls off-duty cop out for calling his friend a cunt.  Off-duty cop drags kid through the shrubs and into his yard.  Kid's friends help get him away from the off-duty cop.  Off-duty cop pulls gun and fires not hitting anyone.  Protests break out.  Bunck of protesters and a couple of the original kids arrested.  Off-duty cop that fired his weapon at young teens not arrested.

Makes perfect sense.

And . . . TRUMP!!! :cheer:

I don't get why the courts continue to side with the cops on these cases. Do they think the cops are suddenly going to stop arresting people and bringing them to the courts if that happens?  It just does not make any sense to me.

DA's need cops to get convictions. But why they don't import Prosecutors from out of district specially to prosecute cops is beyond me. There is built in obstruction of justice in the current system.

Another example of why you probably shouldn't fucking bother reporting sexual assault anyway and why you should never trust men:

Once she stopped, she said Burgos stroked his penis until he ejaculated into a micro-fiber towel he removed from the center console of his car.

TMI?

That part is irrelevant. This part isn't:

Quote
The Orlando Police Department is now conducting an internal investigation to determine whether any policy violations occurred, a police spokesperson told BuzzFeed News.

Burgos, an 18-year veteran of the police department, has been stripped of his badge and gun and continues to work in a desk assignment, the spokesperson said.
If no "policy violations" occurred, why has he been stripped of his badge and gun and reassigned to desk work?

$5 says he's done terrible shit before and they've managed to keep it quiet, so this time they have to kind of make it look like they're taking it "seriously" even though he won't be charged and will be back on the street with his badge and gun in time. People don't just randomly sexually assault women once and then never do it again.
