Just manslaughter?  Couldn't make murder charges stick?

Only a manslaughter charge for what was obviously planned ahead of time?

Being Texas, I'm surprised they got charged with anything at all.

They failed twin murder 101.  You have 1 in a public place like a bar and the other does the murder. This way when they have to identify you there they pull out the twin.

It's a Texas jury dream.

Michael Sheppard was a warden at a notorious, privately owned detention center in Texas.

"I was then placed in solitary confinement, where I was forced to lie face down on the floor with my hands handcuffed behind my back while I was kicked repeatedly in the ribs by the warden," one detainee describes in a 2018 report by the The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services.

"When I told him, 'I'll get a lawyer to sue you,' the Warden responded, 'We've got enough money.'"

Another one of Trump's 'good people' that call themselves Christians.

I know it's autocorrect but I still get to chuckle sensibly at it.

If they were shooting to scare, or shooting to kill, it's manslaughter.  So odds are that's the easy charge right now.  As the prosecution keeps investigating the case, it's always possible they upgrade the charges if further evidence comes up.

WaPo has more details. The warden has been free for the past 4 years, even after the FBI removed all of his ICE detainees because he was torturing black people while yelling slurs at them.

This. That's 2nd degree murder. Also, their claim about "hunting" is utter BS. If you're close enough to kill someone with a shotgun, you know damn well what you're shooting at. If they aren't convicted, shiat is gonna get ugly. Hopefully the Arbery GA guys will set an example. But this is TX...🤔

And this right here is why they are the American Taliban.

See, the slightly smarter criminals join a police department, where they can be just as scummy, and break just as many laws, but they still get a pension for it.

Why the hell is the charge manslaughter and not murder?

[looks at photo of the suspects, notes the race of the victims, notes the State] ... oh, yes, of course they are only being charged with manslaughter.

FTA, one was a guard working at a detention center for illegal immigrants. So was he trying to kill some and put himself out of a job?

Looks like it worked, but not for the reasons he was hoping.
