The most unemotional defendant this side of OJ
Edited on Fri Feb-18-11 02:53 PM by rocktivity
Watching the opening testimony of Barry Sutton on Tru TV -- he's accused of hiring someone to kill his parents. I find myself asking the same kinds of questions I wanted to ask at OJ's (first) trial:

- Where is your agony at the sight of your father's blinded, maimed face?

- Where is your grief at having to relieve your mother's senseless death?

- Where is your rage at the gunman if he's supposed to have acted independently of you?

And most important...

- WHERE IS YOUR OUTRAGE THAT YOU'VE BEEN FALSELY ACCUSED?

He opened his testimony by recounting how his parents had him hauled off to a reform school in Samoa as a teen -- that, combined with getting hold of his parents' money, are his alleged motives. But for someone who insists he no longer holds a grudge, he certainly as a detailed memory of it!

We'll see the rest of his testimony Tuesday, which will feature him having a "highly emotional moment." Not at the sight of his father, not from the loss of his mother, but from the suffering he went through at the school. Doesn't Sutton's lawyer realize that the more sympathy they try to milk, the stronger Sutton's revenge motive grows? If they continue at this rate, the prosecution won't HAVE to cross-examine him!

:crazy:
