I mean, I can understand it given the situation you’re in:
A man convicted of first-degree murder told Jefferson Parish jurors deliberating his fate, “If I had an AK-47, I’d kill every last one of y’all with no remorse.”
Isaiah Doyle made the comments today after taking the stand during the penalty phase of his murder trial.
The same jury that is weighing Doyle’s fate yesterday convicted him of first-degree murder in the 2005 shooting death of a Marrero convenience store clerk.
But you should probably wait until after they’ve decided whether you’re going to die or not before making such proclamations. I know that I wouldn’t blame the jury for deciding you’re not worth keeping around for much longer.
Especially after the following:
During the penalty phase of the trial, prosecutors also put the female victim of another Doyle robbery on the stand. The appearance by that victim, robbed by Doyle three weeks before the killing, prompted an angry outburst from Doyle. Courtroom deputies had to restrain the convicted murderer.
Later, on the witness stand, Doyle told the jury what he had told the robbery victim following her testimony. Doyle testified that he told the victim, “I should have blown your f****g brains out.”
Asked whether he had any remorse about murdering Hwa Lee, Doyle told jurors, “I have no conscience. When I go to sleep at night, I don’t even think about it.”
Yeah, I wouldn’t place any bets on you ending up with just life in prison.
