That must have been a bullet proof lease agreement for the building owner to not even warrant a mention. I'm afraid it will be business as usual as no money, no power, and no authority has been held accountable.

"The men were set to be sentenced last year to nine and six years in prison, respectively, after pleading no contest to manslaughter. But a judge threw out their pleas after many of the victims’ families objected, saying the proposed sentences were too lenient."
That's kind of amazing, to be set up for a 6 year prison term, have it rejected for being too lenient, then being found innocent by a jury.
