Did anyone read the Keith Larson opinion piece in the Charlotte Observer today?

I am amazed the Observer printed it.

I didn't. Is it available online and not behind their paywall? I'm not paying to read it.

I ponder what difference between a mistrial verses a hung jury.
News earlier was stating they came to unanimous decision. I wonder what happened.

In comparison to Baltimore & Ferguson, Kudos to Charlotteans not please with verdict are handling it peacefully.
Imo the eight who are laying on 4th Street should chose the sidewalk verses a street as that is a disruption but it beats destruction. I hope it continues peaceful.

same thing. A hung jury leads to a mistrial.

Hopefully the local press will restrain themselves from being sensationalistic on this......especially WSOC which LOVES to blow things out of proportion.

Well there hasn't been a trial in Baltimore yet and there was none in Ferguson. And a mistrial isn't a verdict; we'll have to see if prosecutors decide to push for another trial.

No. They were discussing and making progress. If they had come to a unanimous decision that would have been acquittal because only four thought he was guilty according to the press report.

I keep remembering the news the night this happened. This was a political trial and should never have happened.

Indeed. They brought two grand juries and now a criminal trial against this poor fellow and they still don't have a conviction. The state should dismiss the charges and move on. Of course they won't because Roy Cooper wants to be governor of NC.
