I was auditing the original triple murder trial while I was in law school and I just want to say that I couldn't believe the jury acquitted Derosa. It was so clear to everyone that he was guilty of this horrible execution that when the jury returned the not guilty verdict we were all in utter disbelief. Then I realized the reason for his swift acquittal. SHEER LAZINESS. The jury had been complaining of the long hours and that they were unsatisfied with the Chevys Tex Mex they were given to eat. So they quickly ignored a MOUNTAIN of evidence which left NO doubt that the man on trial could be the only one guilty of this crime in favor of going home early to the McDonald's they're used to. SHAME ON YOU MEMBERS OF THE ORIGINAL JURY. THE BLOOD OF EVERYONE THIS MAN HAS MURDERED IS ON YOUR HANDS. AND EVERY RUINED LIFE AS A RESULT IS ON YOU. Someday you will have to stand before your maker and explain yourself but I'm sure "Mexican food is weird" and "he reminded me of my son" will be acceptable excuses for letting a killer loose to kill again(Derosa has been suspected in several murders since his acquittal). How you sleep at night I'll never know.
