    How can this clown and his lawyer think he can plead not guilty when there was a plane full of witnesses that saw him do it? They should throw the book at him just for being that stupid on top of everything he did!

    Worse yet, is Abortionist Kermit Gosnell (House of Horrors) who has been charged with cutting the spines of seven late-term babies after they were born alive.
