I didn't realize you lived in Chicago. That's "Big City" for me. Do you live in the suburbs or the city? I hope you're neighborhood hasn't been touched by the recent lootings. Mine wasn't, for the most part, though about a mile from me it was pretty bad (or so I hear, I haven't gone there to look).

This is one of those situations where the jury will "have to" convict. I, too, believe it should convict.

But let's just remember that we've already decided what the outcome *should* be. That gives me pause. Such "pause" comes just as cheaply as my outrage. I've decided he's guilty. Others have, too. Regardless, my life and the "system" will continue on.
