Split Decision


What do you think of the verdict in the Michael Dunne trial?  He was found guilty of  4 counts of attempted murder for firing into a carload of teen boys, but the jury was hung on the count of murdering a boy who he said went after him after Mr. Dunne asked them to turn their music on.  Some accounts have it at 10-2 to convict, some have it at 9-3.  It is hard to understand.  Perhaps Criminal Law needs to be simplified in how it is written to allow jurors to understand just what they can do.
