    This is why prosecutors should be sworn in and prosecuted for lying in court.

    I suspect it was possibly a crusty old fart on the Jury who identified with Dunn, didn't want to send Mikey to prison for life and didn't realize guilty on the other counts still got him 75 to 105 years in prison.

    It makes sense to me. Some of the jurors believed that they had a reasonable doubt about whether the first three shots were justified, but were convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that the last volley was unnecessary and thus unjustified. That would make him guilty of the attempted murders and the shooting at the car but would result in the hung jury regarding the murder charge (since it was the first three shots that killed Davis). I see no reason to assume bad faith. BTW, it's 60 to 105, as the last charge doesn't carry a mandatory minimum. So absent extraordinary medical advances he'll be in prison for life (a mandatory minimum can have no more than 18 months left in order for the person to be eligible for parole).

    I have no idea what the thought process was but I suspect we'll find out next week. It makes no sense at all to me that someone could agree on "attempted murder" but then have a problem with the murder charge.

    Right. He was the Los Angeles DA for eons and never lost a single murder trial. Felony convictions were 105 out of 106. His analysis of the OJ trial would, of course, be irrelevant.

    Simple. The first three may have been justifiable. The last seven weren't.

    Exactly.

    He's a scumbag. He will use any dishonest tactic he can to convict someone whether they are guilty or not.
