Because if you put aside race and put yourself in the situation, most people will identify with the choice the cop has to make.

The only two black jurors in the Philando Castile case were in favor of acquitting the cop responsible for his death, a juror explained Friday.
Dennis Ploussard, one of the twelve jurors, said that the jury was broken down 10-2 for acquitting Officer Jeronimo Yanez of his manslaughter charges — 10 jurors were in favor of clearing Officer Yanez and the other two were unconvinced.
The two holdouts were not the only black members on the jury, Ploussard told the Associated Press. The jury discussed the “culpable negligence” for the manslaughter requirement, he said. Eventually, the two unconvinced came to agree to acquit Yanez.
