Duke Briscoe: We don't know how the grand jury sentiment added up, but it would only take 4 jurors to block an indictment. Or to put it another way, 9 out of 12 jurors would be needed to approve an indictment.

yeti: The easy way out for the grand jury would have been to bring charges against the officer. The fact no charges were brought, tells me there was a total lack of evidence against the officer. I have...
