Reyna was destined to lose to the facts and forensics, and trial testimony. What was he thinking??
Justice was bound to prevail against him, eventually, and doubtless a movie will be produced that further seals his place in history.
I have some understanding of the element of proof needed to convict a person of deadly assault to which the defense is self defense. I had always assumed that at least they could find convictions on weapons charges but apparently many of those men had concealed permits or the videos just failed to make ID on anyone. The DA went off with no cases proven IMO. The first case was a joke against the president of the club on racketeering !! Hell, that could have been done BEFORE the gun fight!! And he failed there. It was over at that point. I understand that he is the defendant in several defamation and civil rights law suits stemming from this fiasco?
He was thinking the bikers would not be able to afford a defense and would plea bargain to lesser offenses. He thought wrong.
