17. There was a difference in victims.

In the typical cases where the cop got off, the police could put blame on the victim or vilify them as partly responsible for the shooting. It sucks, but it plays well with juries, especially those chosen to be deferential to police.

In this case, the victim was absolutely innocent. He was not under arrest or being questioned or even suspected of any crime. He was walking out of the building he lived in, a pure wrong place wrong time.
