    As a resident of the SF Bay Area, this verdict comes as no surprise to me. The prosecution never told the jury how the murderer got the weapon he used to kill Kate Steinle as part of their effort to throw the case. Also, the BLM agent who had the weapon that was used in this crime has never been punished for improperly storing the weapon used in this murder in his vehicle and has, in fact, been promoted.

    I wasn't on the jury and I don't know anything about ballistics. From my understanding, the defense team convinced the jury that the bullet ricocheted off of a building before it hit Kate, which if true, would rule out first degree murder. But manslaughter is still an appropriate conviction at that point, if they can't prove a motive.

    They also said the gun was wrapped in a t-shirt and that he stepped on it. I call it the Bullshit Defense.
