Balko on Maye

Radley Balko has been down in Mississippi, talking with Cory Maye's family and jurors from his trial. The link is a roundup of his (many excellent) posts and research on the case.

Maye, you may recall, is the young man currently serving a prison sentence for the shooting of police officer Ron Jones. It appears painfully clear from the evidence that Balko, among others, has collected that Maye was acting reasonably and prudently in self-defense.

Kudos to Balko for continuing to run with this story. Cory Maye should get a new trial.
