Well, we had a reasonable doubt a second ago

"MIAMI (Reuters) - A Mississippi judge on Friday granted bail to 80-year-old former Ku Klux Klansman Edgar Ray Killen, who was sentenced to 60 years in prison for the 1964 killings of three civil rights workers in a case that inspired the 1988 movie 'Mississippi Burning.'" One of the oddest things about the June trial (that involved allegations over 30 years old) was that the jury, after just four hours of deliberations, announced to the judge they were hopelessly deadlocked 6 to 6. The next morning they quickly reached a unanimous verdict of guilt.
