All that means is the case is dismissed and cannot be brought back to court even if there is new evidence. The prosecution is in the clear for the foreseeable future but I hope they get disbarred and reprimanded in some capacity.

They’ll just lose their license but gain roles as CNN hosts.

Wouldnt that be unnecessary since double jepordy is prevented via constitution?

Double jeopardy does not always apply to cases where new evidence is discovered. That's why the "with prejudice" in this context is important. Cases can be brought back with the discovery of new evidence that wasn't available before. Mostly on some kind of new charge.

For example hypothetically if there was a video discovered of Kyle saying "I'm off to Kenosha to shoot some dickweed rioters", that would be new crucial evidence that would completely change the entire case.

I agree, but i thought the concept of double jepordy was to prevent the prosecution for sitting on, or omitting (not doing their fair share of research before charging). Double jepordy is the same charge, so anything new would fall under that. They cant come back and say, well now it’s pre-meditated. Pre has to be charged first. I like you, but respectfully, i disagree

Right, which is why they make a new charge like I said. Instead of Capital Murder or whatever else, they would pursue different charges based on the new evidence. Having the entire case as a whole dismissed with prejudice prevents that from happening
