In Galveston, a jury of six people couldn't agree on whether or not 12-year-old Dymond Milburn assaulted one of four Galveston police officers who allegedly beat her up and sent her to the hospital. Five jurors thought she didn't assault the officers and one juror thought she did. This is the second time the case has resulted in a mistrial. Prosecutors said they won't retry the case.
According to the civil lawsuit filed against the officers, "The van they were traveling in was unmarked and the officers were not in uniform. The officers did not identify themselves as police."
But according to the Galveston County Daily News, "Prosecutors Veronique Cantrell-Avloes and Ella Anderson told jurors Milburn knew the men were officers, because they wore badges and had 'police' displayed on their shirts. 'Not only did they have police all over them, but when she yelled, ‘F--- you. I hate the police,’ you probably know you’re dealing with the police.'
