They beat Luis Ramirez. They beat him to a pulp. A jury in Shennandoah, Pennsylvania said the boys did not murder Ramirez. But how can this be since Ramirez died? In an irrational moment of myopic justice, a jury has decided that two teenage boys were only beating Luis Ramirez - and that the consequences of their physical actions apparently didn't count. Seems to me that the people on the jury were thinking with only part of their brains. How many murder convictions have been decided when there is an assault that leads to the death of the victim?
The newspaper articles say it was an all white jury. So was the jury in Simi Valley, CA who decided the L.A. policemen were not guilty in the beating of Rodney King in 1992 (judge for yourself, link to video of King beating: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROn_9302UHg)
It sounds like the Pennsylvania jury made up a fantasy about what happened. The bottom line is that Luis Ramirez died from being beaten by Derrick Donchak and Brandon Piekarsky.
