Why is Arlington Martin not a great example? If I was moving to the area and got a job in downtown Fort Worth then Martin would be closer to work than Aledo would be. Everman or Brewer would never be options if I was looking for an upper tier program to put my kid in.
Can you define trace amounts of fentanyl? Do you know how powerful the drug fentanyl is in conjunction with amphetamines? This is what was in his system. One of the medical examiners testified in the case if they had found Floyd at home alone dead his death would have been classified as a drug overdose. Everyone talks about the 9 minutes and 29 seconds but totally ignores the previous 16 minutes and 59 seconds. Regardless of his level of guilt he did not get a fair trail.
He was guilty of a crime, but as others stated, murder wasn't appropriate. I wouldn't be surprised if an appeal is effective to some degree. I also don't at all blame the jurors for finding him guilty and getting the heck out of dodge. There's no way the question "what will happen if we don't find him guilty on all charges" wasn't asked in the deliberations.
