The prosecution over reached with the first degree murder charge, but didn't the jury have the option of second degree murder? They found him guilty of three counts of attempted murder of the other people in the car so it is baffling they couldn't agree on the charge concerning the person he actually killed.
I hoped he'd be found guilty of murder. I hate the fact that states with "stand your ground" laws are populated with people who do not, or will not, take the time to actually read the law or have humanity to understand what a shooting or subsequent death will do to them or the families of the victims. Emptying ten rounds into a car, over the volume of music and argument, should get him a life sentence. The death of a 17 year old should mean without the possibility of parole because he robbed that kid of 30-80 years of life! The guy is a complete moron....
To be fair, rap music is pretty rage inducingly awful.
It is..realistically speaking..can't say I haven't wished death upon people blasting ****** music from their car though.
