    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    It would be interesting to know what "evidence" they have heard and what they've been told to ignore, do or not do by the judge. Comparing against what actually occurred would tell much, though we'll likely never know.

    It's easy to pass judgment on someone when you're sitting on an overstuffed chair in an air conditioned courthouse. Stick the jury in the middle of a war zone and see how they vote. BTW there's a poll with the story. 76% opposed to a retrial.
