Making it Easy For the Jury

From the Star Telegram:

Convicted killer Christopher Chubasco Wilkins took the witness stand in his capital murder trial today, matter-of-factly admitted to three murders and a variety of other crimes, and then told the jury he didn’t care if he lived or died.

Whatever jurors decided -- life in prison without parole or the death penalty -- was fine with him, he said.

"I'm as undecided as you are," he told the jury. "You’ve got a job to do. You tell the judge, 'Get a rope, or not.’ Look, it is no big deal. It is not big deal. Do whatever you do."
At least he has saved us a few tax dollars drawing this out. Now for the jury to do the same, we will be good to go.

Some background on this case can be found here. Yes, this one deserves the needle.
