  •  I can understand why White did it ...... (0+ / 0-)

    White Privilege!  Dan White decided to undo the choice of the voters by assassinating the leadership of San Francisco, by a political decapitation to unseat the established power structure that he happened not to like.  Had he been black, as in a member of the Black Panther Party, he would have been set up for a State and or Federal death squad, but because he was white, he got off with 5 years and the Twinkie defense.  No matter how sympathetic he was, I cannot see a jury outside of California buying that argument.  

    A California jury also set OJ free too, so I guess crazy juries work both ways in the Golden State.
