corrupt cops had the courage to go against public opinion. >> reporter: officer nero teared up after the verdict was read, while outside the courthouse emotions were also running high. >> no justice! >> people want justice, but i think we still have to let the process work. i think that some things were said to make me feel that some next cases might be done differently. >> reporter: six baltimore police officers have been charged in the arrest and death of gray. the officer who was driving the van faces the most serious charges, second-degree murder. craig boswell, cbs news, baltimore. the supreme court threw out the death sentence imposed on a georgia inmate because prosecutors improperly kept african-americans off the jury. timothy foster, a black man, was convicted in 1987 of murdering a white woman. he was convicted by an all-white jury. in a 7-1 decision, the court ruled that prosecutors were
