Trust me, there isn't a jury in New York City that's going to convict Diallo, especially considering the perp's prior criminal history -- Nash had 19 prior arrests. From the New York Daily News:

"His previous arrests included drugs, arson, unlawful imprisonment, robbery and assault. In one particularly heinous 2003 case, he pleaded guilty to unlawful imprisonment for holding a 17-year-old girl captive for two days.
Authorities said the teen was sexually abused, stabbed and beaten — suffering a black eye, lacerations and a dislocated shoulder."

I think Diallo should get a medal for improving the human gene pool.

Except in most liberal jurisdictions, the perps past criminal history is not admissible in court, as the defendant was not aware of these facts at the time of the incident.

The guy did the entire world a favor in self defense, and the liberal idiots will now prosecute him, drain his life savings defending himself again, then send him to prison. They preferred it when this thug was running free, because it gave them job security. Liberal morons will vote them into office again and again to "protect them" from criminals like these, but they are literally sooo stupid, they don't realize that what they are doing, isn't working. Why was this moron out on the streets after so many criminal incidents?

You are always fighting the thugs and the law, and sometimes it's hard to tell them apart.

RLM Rapists Lives Matter. Errr. No they don't.
I have a friend who was raped. She carries the mental scars with her for life. There is absolutely no justification for such a crime. Society as a whole has been done a favor by this dirtbag being beaten 'til dead.

Let me start by saying I too am glad this POS is dead. And yeah, had that been my wife I could see myself doing the same thing.

But you guys questioning the law have to understand these laws are there for a reason. Another poster said what I was thinking. What if she was mistaken? In a civilized society you can not let citizens take the law into their own hands. Sure in this case it may have been justified but what about the next one that inches even closer to the gray area? That can of worms is best left closed for obvious reasons.

I do agree that he won't face much punishment, I sure hope that is the case. But again as posted before he most certainly should go through the process.

I would be happy to serve on this husband's jury and lead a jury nullification of his charges.

Don't turn it into a political argument by using words like "liberals". The problem is caused by stupidity, not political leanings. There is no shortage of stupidity in any kind of political leanings. Unless you consider a noisy bombastic bloward to be your idea of a genius.

You misspelled "incompetent" as "liberal" thereby attempting to turn this into a political argument. No matter how incompetent you think anything is now, wait till a bombastic blowhard takes over, and you will start to get an inkling of what real incompetence really is.

That's complete and utter nonsense.

First, most states simply follow federal rules of evidence governing this issue. These rules were signed into law in 1975 by a Republican President. There have been ample opportunities for Republicans to alter them. If they're not to your liking, you can't logically blame that on your 'scary liberals' boogeyman.

Second, there is no state - period - that simply bars the criminal history of a suspect from trial. Every state allows such evidence to some degree and in certain circumstances and prohibits such evidence to some degree and in certain situations. Your assertion that 'in most liberal jurisdictions, the perps past criminal history is not admissible in court' is false. It is simply not true. And your weird use of the term 'liberal jurisdiction' suggests that you in fact do not know what you're talking about. Why didn't you just say 'state'? It's not like law in this regard differs between, say, New York (city) and upstate - it's New York law governing both places, and as previously noted, whether it's New York or Texas, California or Utah, the law is closely patterned on the aforementioned federal rules.

Finally, I'll just add that the idea that admission of prior crimes significantly changes the likely outcome of a trial is wrong, as surveys of trials and their outcomes have shown.

This.

If police come onto a seen where one man is mortally wounded or dead and the other admits to harming him, of course they have to put the perpetrator in handcuffs and take him to the station until they can figure out what happened. They can't just take the guy's word that it was a rapist attacking his wife, they have to see if his story checks out.

After the fact are gathered he will be charged/not charged accordingly. All this outrage is premature, just let the process work itself out first

the criminal was caught in the hallway not on top of his wife, so it was after the act, his word against the wife word. but no way I would convice him either
