Re: Wow, Robert Blake Acquitted? Justice?
This was the prosecutions dropped ball from day one. They were arguing the wrong crime. They had no witnesses, no connection to the murder weapon and Blake, no evidence of Blake even firing a gun near the time... nothing. What they should've done is argue that he hired someone, a third person who hasn't been found. There was enough evidence to convict him of conspiring to commit murder, but not enough to say he actually pulled the trigger. The prosecution f'ed this one hard core! Like it or not, the legal system works folks.
