As do I. I just cant make the jump to a murder charge.
I heard it explained that charging on the lesser included becomes problematic once not guilty has been reached on the primary charge due to some of the same triggers needing to be met. If that is the case, even more of a mark against the prosecution.
I also worry that extremes on both sides are taking this case only at face value and it will cause further harm down the road. You just know some on the far right believe this was a state-sponsored declaration of open season. Conversely, I have already seen stories about Antifa members tweeting each other about getting guns and ruminating that shooting first is their only defense.
