I think you have missed the point Fly. Your humor is always appreciated and I find myself amused any time I read your posts.
You're welcome, Jeff.
Maybe that was your goal here. But the point was, "Why even answer stupidity with no proof or evidence?" In the United States of America a court case is suppose to be proof beyond a reasonable doubt. When the ONLY thing you present is a bunch of disgruntled ex-employee's, with an ax to grind, and rhetoric ad-infinitum from the prosecutor, a rational person that trusts in the system does not have to answer all the foolishness.
The case was that ridiculous. It was just a smear campaign with lies from people that don't like the guy.
Okay, they don't like him, but for this to be allowed to go on in a court of law is a disgrace.
The prosecutor did not care about truth. She had tunnel vision to convict. As long as she had people to say the impossible and the outlandish happened, that is all she cared about. She had no evidence. Why else would a very, very well respected and one of the best attorney's in Monroe not put on a case?
The burden of PROOF is on the prosecution. They had ZERO proof.
I somehow doubt you're an unbiased observer.
The defense had less than zero proof. They didn't have anything to refute? No cross examination? No evidence of cable bills, friendly eyewitness testimony, application of liquor licenses, security camera footage? Nothing? Nothing at all? Were I innocent, I'd be using all of that, PLUS legal technicalities, to get myself an innocence verdict. The fact that you DID NOT certainly leaves one suspicious.
If you had these things and didn't bother using them, that's your own fault. Innocent until judged guilty by the jury of your peers. That means you have to CONVINCE the jury to be on your side, to prove a doubt. Your lawyer did nothing of the sort. He is a very poor lawyer.
Blaming the prosecution for doing their job is inane. Blame your lawyer, Jeff.
Back to the point. In Wayne County they only bring a case when there is evidence. Not just talk.
Rape and murder cases often revolve around just talk. Kwame's perjury charge was "just talk" - indeed, the charge is based on it!
Would you start your damn appeal already, Jeff?
