    Spend some time educating yourself regarding the jury system and get back to me.

    Yea, you had your faults alright.

    It's called genocide.
    Your level of attempting to derail this thread is outrageous. Other than your expressing your personal hatred of Germans or non-Americans, do you have a point?

    German police fire less than 100 rounds a year. American police fatally shoot thousands of people a year. That is addition to beating people to death. Do you have any link to any incident of German police beating or crushing someone to death is - say the last 10 years?

    The process is quite impressive.
    That is unfortunate.

    I listened to the Cops attorneys. They kept saying there was other evidence besides the video and that the video made it the incident look more horrible than it was. Problem with that lame excuse was all the people at the Bus terminal that took pics with their phones. Which many of them weren't allowed to even be witnesses.

    Also the other problem with that.....was Thomas' face. The wound were done by blows to the face. Which has nothing to do with restraining anyone.

    What other evidence? That statement is nothing.

    The video makes "the incident" look exactly like what happened.

    Of course witnesses were not allowed to testify. The DA did not want a conviction. The DA's office only wanted to avoid protests for not putting the officers on trial and not lay basis for a civil suit in a guilty verdict. The judge also was part of the same governmental system. So it predictable that witnesses harmful to the defense would have been allowed to testify.

    What, like creating posts based upon the word count of Tolstoy's War & Peace?

    Simply making things up that have no relevance to real facts?

    Posting total fantasy and fabrication in an attempt to mislead other posters?

    Nope, don't think so.

    We have a pannel system consisting of several judges.
    Really? I think it works better than systems without juries and adds an lever of control of the state by the citizenry. Personally, I think it better to have more controls than fewer. That is why I also tend to believe it better to elect judges and heads of police and distrust systems, where a judge can be discharged by some branch of government.

    Like I said before, it`s a bunch of amatures.

    ps: If you reply to this post I will request a mod to splitt the thread.
    Now that we have tried to unsuccessfully kill each other, I have a suggestion.

    Why not open a thread regarding the jury system, and we can discuss is rationally.

    I apologize for getting heated and mean with you.

    They can investigate all they want. The only thing they could possibly charge any of the cops with is a violation of Kelly's Civil liberties.
    And that would be a hell of a stretch to make.
    Not to worry, after a quick review of the details of the case the Justice Department will determine that Kelly Thomas was not black.
