Defence Counsel- Kalimullah

They Were Ambitious Sons, in Their Father's Image; Now Lyle and Erik Menendez Stand Accused of Their Parents' Murder

Two brothers, Erik and Lyle Menendez were convicted for the murder of their parents. A team of defense lawyers defended them. The defense team used a strategy that seeks to exonerate the brothers by laying blame instead on the murdered parents. The defense team argued that the brothers were driven to murderous rage by the parents themselves who subjected the brothers to prolonged abuse and tyranny.

Sakmongkol wishes Kalimullah Masheerul Hassan is a lawyer. Best of all, if he defends the notorious RPK. Kali would be the equal to Leslie Abramson who defended the Menendez brothers for killing their parents.

Today he has written a piece. Defending and justifying Uncle Lah’s inability to carry out changes. Uncle lah has had 5 years but is till not able to make changes. Kali should also lay blame on the menagerie of anarchic cabinet members for failing to do manly tasks of prodding and debating with the PM. Or perhaps they too can carry out a class action against Tun Mahathir for being turned into half past six leaders? .

What was uncle’s lah main bugbear of carrying out reforms? Commissar Kali puts it as the legacy of Tun Mahathir.

Lay blame on others for your own incapacity and lacking. Uncle Lah was driven to incompetence and haplessness by a lifetime abuse by Tun Mahathir. Tun Mahathir was the parent or surrogate parent to the cabinet. Sakmongkol is surprised that Kali has not included sexual abuse from Tun Mahathir to explain uncle lah’s incompetence.

The defense would try to prove to the jurors that it was Jose and Kitty and not Lyle and Erik who should be held accountable for why the murders were committed. Abramson and Lansing would argue that the brothers had been instilled with feelings of fear over a long period of time, going back many years. The athletic, spoiled rich sons who had each at one time in their lives considered becoming professional tennis players; were going to be portrayed as victims of child abuse.

Therefore just like the defense team in the Menendez brothers case, Kali uses the same defense strategy. That Uncle Lah has been instilled with feelings of fear over a long period of time, going back many years.

The pure and more Islamic Uncle Lah is going to be portrayed as victim of Tun Mahathir’s abuse.

Wow, Kali, you are better than Shafee Abdullah.

Kali contributed to Lah's downfall by letting his NST be used as spinners to boost Lah's fledgling esteem. Instead of propping it he managed to weaken it even further. In the process even the new daily Sinar's circulation beats that of long established NST.
