Skakel could be free but should he be?

After serving eleven years for the murder of Martha Moxley it seems that Michael Skakel could be totally freed soon and is already out on 1 million dollar bail as his original lawyer may not have done a good job representing him. This was a sordid tale of power and privilege that was solved by Mark Fuhrman (yes, that Mark Fuhrman). In his book, Murder in Greenwich, he showed that Michael Skakel had the the motive, the means, and the opportunity. It was out of an overpowering lust for Martha after he had observed his older brother receiving a sexual favor from her and followed her heading for home wanting a favor himself. The book was convincing and made me sure that Skakel was guilty and should be tried and jailed again. If you are not sure just take my word for it...

OK okey dokey

I read the book also and found it fascinating. In a gruesome way.

I have never been a fan of non-fiction murder stories or mysteries. I'm fully aware of what the human race is capable of doing to one another, and the reasons behind much of it... gruesome, yes... fascinating, no.

It has nothing to do with any of it being too graphic for me... it's more a case of, I just don't want to read about the more evil side of humankind. There's enough on the daily news.
