Closing Arguments

Closing arguments should conclude today in the Robert 'Mickey' Blake trial.

From Our Gang/Little Rascals star, to murdering quasi juvenile in Capote's 'In Cold Blood' to Police Detective Baretta, Blake has led a roller coaster life with ironic roles throughout.

Physical evidence is light, or even non existence. Circumstantial evidence is strong, but not compelling. When you consider the 'beyond a reasonable doubt' standard, I find it difficult to comprehend they can get a conviction in this case. But that is what I said about the Peterson trial.

Either way I suspect the verdict to be quickly delivered, and by the end of the weekend, we will have our answer.
