When he arrived and his wife identified her rapist, he snapped and attacked. If on a jury, I'd go with not guilty.
Temporary insanity defense.

But his dad didn't SEE anything. It was over when he got there.


I know that shouldn't matter, but it does.


CNN gives a better run-down than yahoo, btw.
Yeah, I agree.

I was giving an example of how he should have described things so as charges wouldn't be brought.

Since charges were brought, he screwed up the narrative because any sort of excuse not to file charges would have been jumped at.

Now would be a good time for the Governor to just come forward and say "I'm going to pardon him the minute you find him guilty, he did a public service dealing with a guy that our own system allowed to repeatedly prey on our citizens."

They still have to find a jury that will convict the guy. If I was on that jury, my position would be "justifiable homicide,"and it would take a lot to make me change my mind.

There's man slaughter and then there's mans laughter. Hopefully, it's the second and not the first.

Castration would not stop him from committing other heinous crimes. Isn't rape more about control over someone than sex?

Let me be on that jury and I would award the Husband damages for denting the tire iron. Any sensible jury will do the same.

Excatly, and even in the liberal land of NYC I think they will find it hard to get a jury to convict.

He didn't beat him to death, the guy died on his own. He had hypothermia, run around naked without clothes in NYC. That's my defense.

Hypothermia defense for an incident on May 30. Interesting strategy, did you consult with Kramer first?
