Hmong convicted of killing Wisconsin hunters

Chai Soua Vang, a 36-year-old truck driver who is a member of St. Paul, Minnesota's Hmong minority community, faces an automatic sentence of six life terms in prison after the all-white jury found him guilty of six counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder after three hours of deliberations.
I'm surprised it took the whole 3 hours.
Let's review: Vang was on private property, illegally, in a tree stand, ostensibly hunting deer. Then, people who were supposed to be there chased him off, calling him names. So Vang murdered 6 of them, and tried to murder 3 more. According to Vang's brilliant lawyer,
Vang was called the most disgusting words that one human being can say to another. ... How is he to react to that?
Well, I'm not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV, but my guess would have been anything other than what he did, like just walk away.

Don't drop the soap.
