C'mon Gil... Ol' Willie got caught with a pail full of, well... human head... and you're shaking the technicality tree?
-- VANCOUVER -- Defence lawyer Gil McKinnon argued Pickton's six second-degree murder convictions should be overturned, because a B.C. Supreme Court judge made an error during his charge to the jury and while answering a question by the jury during the 2007 trial.And what's up with this "second degree" bullshit?
Can't we just assume that, after the first five corpses... (never mind that the unofficial bodycount is somewhere on the dark side of forty)... there was an element of premeditation here?
No wonder lawyers are so popular.
