41 years after the three murders, 80 yr old Edger Ray Killen has been found guilty.
Don't know what he paid his att'y, but in Mr. James McIntyre's
summation he made these statements:
"The state brought in their top prosecuter for the case"
"They hired a jury consultant to insure a guilty verdict"
"The witnesses were paid for their testimony"
"Why didn't they also try the other seven that were still alive for these crimes?"
And...the clincher...all these things did not add up to a fair trial. (a quasi-quote )
All I got out of that was...he's guilty, but we needed the wild 7 to make it a fair game
At least Johnny Cochren would have whipped out an old pair of gloves, or sumthin....
80 yr old John Rigas, the founder of Adelphia Communications
was also found guilty,as was son Timothy...they had put their own meaning to corporate raiders.But the Judge was lenient on John...after taking into consideration his age, he only sentenced him to 15 yrs.
I'd have really punished them...put them in a rest home, made them play bingo and shuffleboard all day,have them 80 yr old women put the moves on them at night...and take away their viagra
And the beat goes on:
