Nah this doesn’t look like the face of a killer…Phil “I pulled the trigger” Spector got off in his murder trial as the judge declared it a mistrial due to a 10-2 vote by the jury. 10 votes of guilty (as hell) and 2 votes of not-guilty (wonder which bank those juror checks will be withdrawn on).
The compelling evidence (saying he did it) against this guy makes O.J. look like a girl scout. He was on trial for
allegedly killing a woman he had met.
Spector went on trial in April, charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of B-movie queen Lana Clarkson after a night out in the clubs of Hollywood.
Spector, 67, did not take the witness stand at the trial.
Normally reclusive, Spector had spent a rare night out on the town, found Clarkson at the House of Blues at closing time and invited her home for a drink in the wee hours of February 3, 2003.
After initially turning him down, she agreed to accompany him, according to testimony.
Hours later, police were summoned to Spector’s mansion in Alhambra, a suburb of Los Angeles. The diminutive music producer had wandered into the driveway in the predawn and told his Brazilian-born chauffeur, “I think I killed somebody,” according to the driver’s testimony. (can we say confession) and then can we say (guilty as hell)
Clarkson was found inside, slumped in a chair in the foyer. She had been shot in the mouth. A .38-caliber Colt Special revolver lay at her feet. It appeared someone had attempted to clean up the blood with a diaper found in the guest bathroom.
Spector’s attorneys argued that Clarkson was depressed over a recent breakup, grabbed the gun and took her own life.
But prosecution witnesses painted Spector as a gun-toting menace, with five women telling harrowing tales on the witness stand of the music producer threatening them with firearms. Spector’s driver testified he heard a loud noise and saw the producer leave the home, pistol in hand, saying, “I think I killed somebody.” – (Can we say guilty as hell)
At issue was whether Spector pulled the trigger — or whether Clarkson did. In photos projected on a large screen, the gruesome crime scene resembled a set decorated for a horror film.
Prosecutors pointed to the leopard print purse slung over Clarkson’s shoulder as evidence she was trying to leave when she was shot. (Again can we say guilty as hell)
The defense argued that blood-spatter evidence on the white women’s jacket Spector wore showed he was standing too far away to place the gun in Clarkson’s mouth.
Wow our justice system is the bomb! Can’t wait till they find Osama and put him on trial and he gets off with a $400 fine and community service…
