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.
