Jury deadlocks on case of border activist charged with helping migrants

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Yonnie3 (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

A federal jury said Tuesday it couldn't reach a verdict on the charges against Scott Warren, a border activist who was charged with conspiracy to transport and harbor migrants. Warren said he was providing two people with water, food and shelter.

Warren, 36, had faced up to 20 years in prison if convicted on the charges. The jury deliberated for over 15 hours.

It's unclear if the federal government will retry the case.

Prosecutors alleged Warren conspired to harbor two migrants and claimed they were not in distress at the time. Warren was arrested in May 2018, only hours after activists released videos of border patrol agents kicking over water jugs meant for immigrants, CBS Tucson, Arizona, affiliate KOLD-TV reports.

1. How can it be a crime to give water and food to someone in the dessert?

2. I sure hope the government (IN OUR NAME) doesn't retry this case.

That policy is as wrong as it can be.

6. 15 hours???????????????????

It took them 15 fucking hours of arguments with some or most wanting conviction and some not.

That tells you all you need to know. Some on that jury wanted conviction. Pathetic.

12. Yes, but some said "No fucking way"

I'd really like to know how the vote went down. Maybe it was it just one or two stubborn Trumpers.

14. I'm surprised the judge didn't send them back to deliberate some more.

15 hours is usually not considered enough time to declare a hung jury.

8. Charging doctors treating 'Illegal' sick and injured?

Kind of an odd sign of the times, that an immigrant can die while in US custody, and not only is no one held accountable, but in one case that we know of, Congress isn't even INFORMED. https://www.democraticunderground.com/10142319559?fbclid=IwAR16lcx8azygGxOB91Xeiu9w94_ie_8rogr2rAvT4b-wpEVUXZuP4RBD1qk.

But someone who actively is trying to SAVE lives is facing 20 years! What next -- arresting doctors for caring for the 'illegal' sick and injured?
