Jury Acquits Former Marine

I have written, and others have written on here, about the case of a Marine being tried in a civilian court in California for involuntary manslaughter for actions taken in Fallujah. Today the jury acquited that young man.
A former Marine accused of killing unarmed Iraqi detainees was acquitted of voluntary manslaughter Thursday in a first-of-its-kind federal trial.

The jury took six hours to find Jose Luis Nazario Jr. not guilty of charges that he killed or caused others to kill four unarmed detainees on Nov. 9, 2004, in Fallujah, Iraq, during some of the fiercest fighting of the war.

That is about 5:59 minutes longer then it would have taken me. I am glad he was not guilty and now I wish somebody would go after the prosecutor and judge in this case for some of legal malefeasance for the witch hunt they engaged in that has put this young Marine and his familythrough so much.
