Bad decisions can result from many factors: poor attorneys on one or both sides, subject matter too complex for jury to grasp, personality conflicts in the jury, one or more jurors who are simply irrational, etc., etc.
As I adverted to above, my wife was on a murder jury where one of the jurors decided the defendant was guilty because she had prayed on it and God said the kid was guilty.
the mere fact that the "victim" and his buddy were there to commit a crime makes them the aggressor.
by breaking into the property the "victim" and his buddy began the hostility and are therefore the initial aggressors. cry some more for the dirty methhead criminalsAggressor \Ag*gres"sor\, n. [L.: cf. F. agresseur.]
The person who first attacks or makes an aggression; he who
begins hostility or a quarrel; an assailant.
