Lawyer ML Sharma told journalists three of the men he was representing, Akshay Thakur and brothers Mukesh and Ram Singh, the latter of whom was driving the bus, would plead not guilty at the next hearing scheduled to take place on January 10.from New Delhi gang rape defendants ‘to plead not guilty’
Well, they're obviously innocent, since from the outset they apparently admitted to the police (see previous posts) that they were just trying to have some fun, and not rape or kill anyone. By the same logic that allows the US to torture in the pursuit of information, these guys are innocent, as well as all criminals who ever lived.
But the more I look at the vast coverage, which reeks of the media's disinformation mills, the more I'm convince that I'm right. For example, when have you ever heard of the accused having their faces covered in a hearing? On top of that, the hearing was closed to the public and the media. The efforts to join in on this festival of lying get more absurd by the day.
