The trail of the baby killer Kermit Gosnell has gone to the jury for deliberation on the seven counts of First Degree Murder of infants, a count of the Third Degree Murder of Karnamaya Mongar, and sundry other, lesser crimes.
The jury may take a while to reach a verdict because the murders of those seven babies carry the possibility of the death sentence for Gosnell and most juries will deliberate quite long before rendering a verdict that can lead to the extermination of a felon. Most likely though, the matter is not strongly in doubt.
It’s certainly the case that Gosnell’s flamboyant defense attorney, Jack McMahon closed his case with a closing non-argument that proved that he had no argument in defense of his client.
“Dr. Gosnell is not the only one doing abortions in Philadelphia,” McMahon said, “but he was an African American singled out for prosecution.”
“We know why he was targeted,” he said. “If you can’t see that reality, you’re living in some sort of la-la land.”
It is a simple and incontrovertible fact that each and every time, without fail or exception, that anyone plays the race card in defense of some minority’s actions or lack of actions it is the case that they have no argument of facts, substance, or worth to present in that defense. Hence. McMahon’s closing argument is laughable at best.
