Tonight on City Confidential some dude was terrorizing
a small Mo town. He was out on bail for shooting
someone. He sat in a bar all day drinking and threatening
people. One day he gets shot in the back with a 12 ga
18 people in the bar and no one saw anything, they
were UNDER THE POOL TABLE.

FBI couldn't find the murder weapon, said there were
more guns in that town than most small countries.

Dead mans wife filed wrongful death $6,000,000.00
against the town. Her house burned while she was at work.
Fire started in 4 corners of the house.
She dropped the suit and left town.

Yeah I know you had to be there lol
I would have liked to have seen 18 people
under a pool table

Forget some of the details, but the town finally had it, had a meeting, went out and killed the guy, and nobody talked. It was on 60 Minutes.

I saw it on 60 Minutes

I'd heard about it, then saw their piece. You can imagine their spin on it. Sounded like justifiable homicide to me.

which is the idea that you can throw the vote. Just recently here a guy was put on trial for possession of guns as a felon. He'd broken into a school when he was 18. Now he was 40 something and a good citizen. the prosecutior nailed him. There was a person on the front row of the audience who had on a 'jury nullification is legal' shirt, so the judge told him to cover up, then quizzed the jury on what they saw, which was nothing. They convicted him, and he got a sentence of 'time served' which wasn't too bad since he could have gotten 5 or 6 years out of the deal.

Also, as I remember, the 60 minutes program was okay with the tow. They had been harrassed by the state trying to find out who killed the guy, and the town's reaction was, "Where were you when this guy was terrorizing us?" His 'wife,' a fat slut who had gotten restraining orders against him in the past, was upset that he was killed and blamed the town, said he was a good guy, etc. I don't think anyone was ever prosecuted for that.

also decide that even if a person is guilty, the law which the defendant broke is wrong and therefore get the case dismissed? Something like that? I know if you request a jury trial for a speeding ticket, the jury can decide the ticket is wrong even if it's proven you actually did speed.

The Judge has the ability to refuse if the punishment is way out of bounds (too harsh or lenient) or has been notified that there is a problem with someone in the jury.
