Even other cops thought this guy was guilty. Was it enough? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“A Dallas County, Texas, judge on Monday declared a mistrial in the case of a former Garland police officer charged with manslaughter in the 2012 fatal shooting of an unarmed motorist.
The 12-person jury began deliberating on Thursday to determine if Patrick Tuter, who is white, had acted criminally in the slaying of Michael Allen, a white man who had led police on a high-speed chase. Tuter fired 41 shots at Allen’s vehicle.
Seven of the jurors in the case were white. The panel’s racial demographics and the outcome of the trial are part of an ongoing debate about how race influences the judicial process for police officers on trial for murder or manslaughter in on-duty shootings.
Prosecutors argued Tuter, now 36, had engaged in “reckless” and unlawful misconduct during the shooting, as police had already cornered Allen’s truck in a cul-de-sac when Tuter opened fire. Three bullets struck the 25-year-old driver.”
