I see her dark eyes glowing, she was only twelve

Back in 2006 on her parent's property in Galveston, a girl went outside to switch on a tripped breaker. She was wearing tight shorts. She was 12-years-old. Dymond Milburn got the living daylights beaten out of her and was hospitalized by 3 plain-clothes policemen on the mistaken pretense that she was a hooker. "You're a prostitute. You're coming with me." The final arguments of the trial were heard yesterday and it was declared a mistrial. The Milburns have launched a Federal suit against the officers.

Judge, we're finished

Judge, we're finished. As the retrial of the Gwen Araujo murder case begins, a juror in last year's mistrial explains why he thinks the retrial may also result in a hung jury. It didn't help that "the star witness turned out to be the biggest liar of all."
