Quote
Officer Joseph Weekley mistakenly pulled the trigger and killed 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones during a chaotic search for a murder suspect in 2010. The judge dismissed an involuntary manslaughter charge after prosecutors finished presenting evidence.

All that's left at trial is a misdemeanor charge.
Freedom is a heavy load, a great and strange burden for the spirit to undertake. It is not easy. It is not a gift given, but a choice made, and the choice may be a hard one. The road goes upward toward the light; but the laden traveller may never reach the end of it.  - Ursula Le Guin
