Criminal Justice News. How did an Alabama Jury come to this decision???

Marshae Jones is an Alabama woman who was shot in the stomach while five months pregnant and later charged with manslaughter in her fetus’ death after police said she initiated the dispute that led to her being shot.

Jones, 27, was indicted Wednesday by a Jefferson County grand jury, reports.

Police said that although Jones did not fire the shots, officials determined that she initiated the fight with the shooter, 23-year-old Ebony Jemison.

Jemison had been charged with manslaughter but the charge was dismissed after a grand jury failed to indict her.

Police say the 2018 shooting occurred during a dispute over the unborn child’s father.

Jones has been released from Jefferson County Jail on a $50,000 bond.

I am so confused.  I just don't understand it.  The rationale just doesn't make sense to me and apparently my old thinking of right and wrong just doesn't apply anymore...correction...what is wrong and a worst wrong no longer applies.
