Racist CNN “legal analyst” Sunny Hostin is “shocked.”
Officer Porter was charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office.
Had Porter been convicted, I believe that the conviction could have been thrown out, based on reversible error, because Circuit Judge Barry Williams had asked the jury to “compromise.” Although jury room compromises happen all the time, they are illegal, because they defeat the interests of justice. No judge may ask for a “compromise,” because it would entail possibly convicting someone of a crime that jurors don’t believe he committed, instead of another crime for which they think he is guilty, but cannot gain a conviction.
