Spector's Well-Hung Jury

Phil Spector's murder trial gets hung.

To the surprise of perhaps no one, the three-ring circus known as the Phil Spector murder trial has been declared a mistrial as the jury entered its 12th day of deliberations. Yes, pretty ridiculous, given Spector's past fascination with guns and inclination for assaulting women. Take a look to the right for his hairstyle now as opposed to his infamous bouffant at the start of the trial. If it doesn't scream guilty, I don't know what does.
