    That's terrible and the DA thinks ahh jury trials are no problem. Yeah, just an innocent (as deemed by a jury) held in jail until he lost everything for standing his ground and defending himself. Thank goodness the guy called 911 or he likely he would have gone up the river the way they were portraying him. The jurors returned a swift innocent verdict and referenced the 911 call that he was in imminent danger.

    I can see where he has a right to be upset with the apartment complexes treatment of him and his property. I would hope he can sue and recover the cost of his personal property. The charges against him were the decision of the DA, considering the 911 tape, I think the DA is a fool.

    I'll admit, I lost some respect for him when he played the race card.

    “I went to jail for one reason and one reason only,” he said. “I’m a black man. James Ludwick is a white man. I think the police had a preconceived notion in their head as to what went on.”

    Glad the guy was found not guilty.

    I have recently heard a lot of stories about people who protected themselves or their families and in return were arrested and charged. Is that due to the stories getting out to the public or a rise in situations like this one?

    I think both.
    It's also a lack of authority figures knowing and understanding people’s rights, increase in gun ownership, and people exercising those rights.

    Always carry a cellphone and know how to dial 911 with one hand and one press. He needs to be compensated by both the state (DA) and the apartment owners. If laws were in place to penalize the state on not-guilty verdicts, the prosecutors would be more careful. In countries that follow Napoleon law, the accuser goes to jail if he's wrong. It cuts down on frivolous law suits.

    I have a Camelbak but it is not the same model. Mine does not have as much storage but it is very handy. I take everyday during Morel season. Mine will carry enough water for me and my son and when the bladder is filled with ice water, it keeps our lunch cold too.

    A sorry thing. As usual, lawyers get you out of the kind of trouble you would never have gotten into in the first place if it wasn't for lawyers.

    Ah, what? a slight relation to the story would be good.

    I agree with those that believe a person who is charged but not convicted of a crime should be made whole on release. That is to say any monetary losses should be paid for by the government. City, State or Federal, whichever is responsible.

    In to many cases a person is charged solely with the intention of using the Courts to drain the persons assets. Many folks will admit guilt to avoid the costs of Court.
