Lawyer for Georgia 17-year-old says his client 'absolutely' not guilty of killing baby
FoxNews.com ^ | 3/25/2013

The lawyer for a suspect in the shooting death of a Georgia baby who was killed in his stroller says his client is "absolutely" not guilty.

"My client is absolutely, 1,000 percent not guilty," public defender Kevin Gough, who represents 17-year-old De'Marquise Elkins, told The Associated Press. He made the comments Monday, while preparing for Elkins' first court appearance on a murder charge. It was scheduled for 2 p.m. Monday.

*snip*

West [the mother] said she thought the 14-year-old looked much younger.

"That little boy did not look 14," West said.

At Monday morning's hearing, the 14-year-old came into the courtroom shackled and wearing a baggy orange jumpsuit, The Florida Times-Union reported.

He glanced at the few members of the media allowed into the courtroom for the initial appearance as he shuffled to a lectern facing Glynn County Magistrate Tim Barton.

The magistrate told the boy he can't set a bond since only Superior Court judges can do so in murder cases.

Well, gosh, if he is “absolutely” not guilty, then we have to believe him.

So he’s 1000 percent not guilty,
meaning he should get to kill 9 more “cracker babies” for free.

I think I read a story that someone riding in the back of the getaway car turned them in. I’m sure there’s a lot of pressure on that witness. The 14 yr old will probably also be used to put the shooter away.

I am certain this public defender will be replaced by someone who loves the spotlight and wants to build a race baiting career for himself.

This should be a pretty easy case to make, if De-Marquis is indeed guilty. After 4 shots he should be covered in gun-shot-residue.

I don’t care whether it as the 17 year old or the 14 year old that pulled the trigger. They both need to meet the needle.

Well, the mother picked his picture out of a set of 24 only to be told “We have him in custody.” In other words, she identified him, and he already had a mug shot on file. So either he or the 14 year old pulled the trigger. Presumably the mother will be able to say which one it was.

Make no mistake about it, this is a tough prosecutorial case. There is an eyewitness-victim, IMO, eminently impeachable since she was actually shot twice and justifiably probably somewhat hysterical.

Then there's the generally reliable "Tyrone," defense. "Wasn't me. must be Tyrone who look like me." Probably pull 20 young males from the projects who look alike and confuse the witness/victim. Then there's the other kid. Who says he's the "other kid?" Sound like a slam dunk? It ain't.

Then, there's the missing murder weapon and all the forensics entailed. Common in the ghetto to have weapons stashed away from home. Unless a homie cracks, it will never be found.

Be ready for the Defense to "Try the Victim-Witness." Ms. West does not have the look of a "model citizen" to me. Throw in a black jury. This is a crap shoot from the git-go.

Best shot: cops take in a known gangster who they know had nothing to do with it and make his worthless life miserable until he tells them what really happened. Brunswick? There are 100 people in the projects who know exactly what went down and who was involved. Until there are teeth in the street, we won't.

hydrogen sulfide?

Natural product in some oil wells in West Texas.

Heavier than air, lethal like Carbon Monoxide.

Please! That picture makes me violently ill. The child is just a bit younger than my two year old and had the joy of a loving mother and family to look forward to. I can not imagine the horror. If ever a POS should die, this is it. No place in hell is great enough.

You make excellent points, particularly about the jury being unwilling to convict even if the evidence proves it.

As to weapon, I think you are also correct in that it will never be found, but there should be plenty of gun shot residue all over the victims, the stroller, and the shooter (and possibly even on the 14 y/o) so as to tie them together.

Win case or loose case, justice will be.

This is Georgia.

He is guilty, will be convicted.

These disgusting bastards should hang from the neck so everyone can see them cry..I was a nice person but there are so much of this sort of thing going on it makes me sick..To shoot a little baby in the face it took an evil demon to do this..I hope the parent or parents are proud of what they raised..

If these two are not taken out of Georgia for trial they will walk..

Nope, sulfuric acid.

But hydrogen sulfide (H2S) would eventually do the job too .. only without imparting to the animal that well-deserved skin bubbling effect.

It is possible that within the shooter's circle of influence killing "cracker babies" is viewed as a badge of honor.

As we have come to learn in the past 5 years, there is a lot of hatred out there toward whitey...and Obama and Holder, because of their positions in society, seem to give it significantly more legitimacy.

I was driving through my neighborhood and a little 5 yr old made a gun out of his fingers and pointed it at me.

The substance listed was sulfuric acid. A popular tool of the Mexican cartels. Nothing remains for "forensics".

Exactly..

Ever since that no good piece of trash Obama took office the blacks are getting wilder than usual..They know they can do anything they want and get away with it..I just wonder how long it will be before whites go after these savages like this one..I also wonder how tough they would be if a gun were pointed in their face..I noticed they went after a woman and a baby, that shows me what pathetic cowards they are..

Well, gee, if he says he's not guilty I guess he didn't do it. Could we at least punish the person that came up with the name De'Marquise? Sounds too close to Marquis de Sade for comfort.

In fact, if I were the public defender, I would have
myself a grand time arguing that young D’vontaeshiqquia
was unduly influenced by malik shabazzzzz and the new black
panthercats and therefore not responsible and charging them as well,with something.

Discovery would very enlightening.

I view him as an animal. He doesn’t really know where he came from or why he is on this earth. He has no purpose in life other that gratification. He has no empathy for other living creatures.

In short, nothing between the ears. He’s dead inside. His brain may as well be a walnut sized mass, that just keeps his heart pumping.

As stupid and soul-less as a pig.

He's not an animal.

I've spent my life around animals...they are very friendly, lovable and loving, dependable, protective, and courageous.

He's more like a demon.

True, but I was curious because I thought he could have possibly posted this status, after the murder, to brag about it.

I think I have translated what the fine young lad said:

“Me in my nigga’s a turn ur blo5k in to murder scene.”

“Me and my nigga’s are going to turn your block into a murder scene.”

Maybe it was premeditated.

I probably didn’t communicate clearly. Essentially a bunch of hoodlums moved in and think this is their turf. Pretty sure its racial as they dont seem to like white people.

I took it as a threat as his big brothers were there as well.

That's what I thought (not that he planned to shoot this particular child and mother...any 'cracker baby' would do).

It's almost like a gang initiation or a rite of passage.

The lawyer for a suspect in the shooting death of a Georgia baby who was killed in his stroller says his client is “absolutely” not guilty.


Hence sometimes tag line:
