Last time we checked in on the Lawrence King trial, Brandon McInerney’s defense team had blamed King for his own murder and said that McInerney couldn’t have possibly committed a hate crime because he doesn’t even own any hateful books—right. The defense team’s latest gambit: claiming that the judge is anti-gay because he referred to King as “queer.” One of McInerney’s lawyers has announced that she is in fact a big ol’ lesbian and said that the judge should recuse himself because anyone who uses the word “queer” has to be anti-lesbian too. Ahhh… that… sorta… makes… no… sense… whatsoever.
Looks like the defense team’s last hope is for a mistrial. S-A-D, sad.
