The trial has finally begun for Aaron Dean and there are many rumors swirling around. Many believe former FWPD officer Aaron Dean will not go to jail for the murder of Atatiana Jefferson. His defense team is made up of attorney's Jim Lane, Bob Gill and Miles Brissette who are all very well respected attorneys. His legal fees are being paid for by the FW POA  so money is not an issue. Murder is a tougher charge to prove than man-slaughter. A murder charge says the person engaged in a dangerous action that caused the death of another person, and that the defendant allegedly knew that he/she would cause the death of the victim. That said, most feel skipping police protocol and entering a dark backyard without cause was exactly that. There were two open doors that Dean and his partner Carol Darch could have knocked on instead of entering a poorly lit backyard. Also, police are trained to kill and not to just harm when they take a shot. There has been at least two requests for a change of venue. I have even heard it said that they want the trial moved to a county like Parker County. Parker County is full of people who work in law enforcement and family members of people who work in law enforcement. So any Parker County jury pool will more than likely include security guards, former police officers, or family members of police officers. Fort Worth is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. I hope the city of Fort Worth cares more about Justice for Atatiana Jefferson than they do about making this city appear that there police departmet does not have problems and there police officers do no wrong. Fort Worth is not Mayberry and it never will be.
