Murderers went loose

Russian court of jury has concluded that the prosecution didn't succeed in presenting enough evidence in order to prove the suspected men guilty in murder of 9 (nine) year old Tajik girl.
9 year old Tajik girl was brutally murdered by a group of Russian skinheads. The authorities report that 11 knife wounds were found on the girl's body.
In other circumstances the obvious concussion would be that the prosecution was sloppy as it commonly happens in Russian Federation. Deep suspicions rise in this case, however. Russian court of jury suffers from serious lack of credibility due to some dubious decisions in the past, based on prejudice rather on the law.
Very sad.

So now what?

Nothing special.
The murderers go free now. The prosecution might appeal, but I don't know what will come out of it. Meanwhile the skinheads will be happy and perhaps will hurt more people, while minorities in Russia will learn that there is no one to protect them except themselves.
