Didn’t the sheriff and DA originally decline to prosecute???  There need to be consequences…..IMHO, they share in the culpability…..same as lack of prosecution for rioting/looting….if there aren’t consequences for bad behavior, you’ll just get more of the same…

They simply don't have any culpability for the murder. Neither do they have any personal responsibility for their actions or lack thereof.

They failed to prosecute and that was wrong. But there is no law against that. And they have qualified immunity. So they can't really be prosecuted for something they failed to do in an official capacity. 

The best we could hope for is they take it upon themselves to change. I wouldn't hold out much hope for that. 

I wish that people could hold the law responsible when they failed to do their job. And I wish we could hold them responsible when they kill some unarmed person who is just afraid for their life. Or beat someone in restraints. Or forcibly inject someone with drugs. Or take your possessions without even charging you with a crime. But that is just not how our laws work. 

 It was a miracle that the murderers were held accountable for their actions. If it wasn't for the media coverage and the public outcry they would have swept this murder under the rug like so many before. 

It just goes to show how important it is to shine the light on crimes like these. Without it our justice system does not work for about half of our population.

I totally agree that failure to prosecute is a problem. The verdict was far from "a miracle".
Light should be shown on all crimes, rather than just "crimes like these".
Actually, this case had little to do with the 2nd amendment.

You’re wrong again…they ARE culpable and they DO have a personal responsibility because of the very nature of their positions…. Not of a legal nature, but moral… that “qualified immunity” BS needs to change when gross negligence/incompetence comes into play.
