Families of the people who died in the Oakland Ghost Ship fire three years ago are not happy with Thursday's verdicts. Two men were on trial. One defendant was found not guilty. The other trial had a hung jury. Thirty-six people died in that fire, and the two defendants had faced involuntary manslaughter.
