    A highly touted ATF case prosecuted in the media loses in the courts....

    It is my understanding that a directed verdict can not be appealed and that the defendant is not guilty and therefore can not be tried again. If that is wrong then someone please correct me. If that is not wrong than what are they trying to do?

    Here is the orginal Arrest Article

    Melodrama aside there was nothing, absolutely nothing in the original report that indicated a crime had been committed by the shop owner. Just a lot of hyperbole. It would be insane to argue that a gun shop does NOT "traffic in firearms" or "allow individuals to pay for firearms". But there you have it.

    What a shame that after all the hard work the Arizona LEO's and ATF agents putting their lives on the line to protect the citizenry from the unchecked proliferation of civilian held firearms, the undesirable was released on the feeble technicality that he had broken no laws. The system just isn't working and it's time for change.

    *for those of you unfamiliar with me this is satire.

    normally if it's called a "verdict" that means it's final and can't be retried.

    However, this sounds like state charges, which means the feds may now charge him again.

    I guess it depends upon what type of acquittal was granted.
