Who did he "assault"? Why do we care?
This sucked from start to finish. Sorry DV.
This was a good guy who used poor judgment in one incident. I think the overall outcome of this whole situation reflected it. It could have happened to anybody in his situation.
Poor judgement never usually turns into Assault on a police officer if you're white. The situation is bullshit and the fact that a juror spoke on DV's behalf saying justice was not served should have the public in OUTRAGE!
He assaulted a cop and then played the race card. Now he's been convicted by a jury of his peers.
@5. that it was an accident should be taken into consideration. the jury of his peers even said that they convicted based on the description the judge gave them. i mean, how often do the jurors sympathize with the defendant when finding him guilty?
getting beat up by the police was probably punishment enough. i understand that when someone is running at you you might feel threatened, but there might have been better ways to handle this as well.
