World's Greatest Lawyer
In Holmes County, Miss., in October, Mr. Chocwe Lumumba, Esq., earned an acquittal for his client, former policeman Eddie Myers, having convinced the jury that it was self-defense when Myers killed his sister-in-law (who was the assistant police chief). Myers told the jury that, yes, he grabbed two .40-caliber handguns and fired 36 shots, hitting the woman 14 times, and yes, the victim's own handgun was found by emergency workers still strapped inside its holster, but it was still self-defense.

I don't know, I'm thinking the "worlds greatest lawyer' would have found a way for the shooter to have been paid for doing what he did in cash:D

Thats coming next int he civil trial.

Hideously large cash award for the pain and suffering his poor departed sister in law caused him. Having to shoot someone 14 times. OH, THE HUMANITY.
