Shooting suspect Jake England tells his story to noted attorney Clark Brewster
Tulsa World ^ | 4/13/2012 | By JERRY WOFFORD World Staff Writer

Posted on 04/13/2012 5:10:42 PM PDT by ImJustAnotherOkie

Tulsa attorney Clark Brewster held a news conference this afternoon to announce that he will defend Good Friday shootings suspect Jake England.

Brewster said he made the decision to provide his service for free after receiving a letter from England's mother, Teri Alexander, who is incarcerated Mabel Bassett Correctional Center in McLoud. The letter described England's difficult childhood and asked for his help, Brewster said.

"Our family does not hate black people," Alexander wrote in her letter.

Brewster also said that after interviewing England over the past week, he does not believe that England has any animosity toward black people

KEYWORDS:
People around here know how good Clark Brewster is. He's a Brilliant Attorney with a face only a mother could love.

It will be fun watching him defend the hate crime aspect of this act.

Difficult childhood? Sorry,no sale sonny.If you did it and didn't have a *damn* good reason (a black having killed your father doesn't even come *close*) you'll get the hot squat with any luck.

I’m not taking his side in any way. It could be interesting however to see this Brewster guy take on Holder’s Mafia.

Hate crime...BS.I'm not even *slightly* interested.Not guilty is my vote on any such charge,regardless of the evidence. Deliberate,premeditated,depraved murder interests me very much,regardless of the race/gender/ethnicity of the killer *or* the victim.

Here is an interesting twist:

“England’s father, Carl, was fatally shot in 2010 by a black man who had threatened Carl England’s daughter. After tracking down Pernell Jefferson, the men fought and Carl England was fatally shot. Jefferson was not charged with homicide because an investigation determined he acted in self-defense.”

An investigation comprised of eye witness testimony and corroborating evidence at the scene said that Zimmerman acted in self defense too. But the National Lynch Mob scared Florida authorities into arresting him anyway.

If he is lucky, the lawyer will be able to negotiate that they jam the execution needle in his left arm instead of his right arm.

I don’t know if Holder has enough zealot’s in his closet to take on two ultra high profile cases at once.

Yes, the father killing thing is an interesting angle. The guy left to go get a gun and came back and shot the father.

This case has more than meets the eye. The father was murdered by a black guy which you may know.

The Father hit him with a ballbat. The guy left to get a gun, returned and killed the father in front of the kid. On top of that his fiancee committed suicide in January. The authorities say it was self defense. It just doesn’t quite wash. This drove the kid just plain crazy. That would be the proper outcome.

Jessie and Al Sharpton will be here Sunday. This was a made to order perfect storm scenario for them.

He just has a penchant for shooting them. It is not race hate or cultural bias, they are just easier to shoot. Or something.

Well I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison,

And I went to pick her up in the rain.

But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck,

She got run over by a danged old train!

Could not resist..........

Insanity a viable outcome.

The Father angle is very significant our should be.

The Father hit black guy(convicted felon) with a ball bat purportedly defending his daughter. Then the guy left to get a gun, returned and killed the father in front of the kid. The authorities say it was self defense. It just doesn’t quite wash.

On top of that his fiancee committed suicide in January.

England is NOT white. Yet Shep Smith refers to him as white, did it today.

Does Oklahoma have a Stand Your Ground Law and does it apply when someone attacks you with a baseball bat?

That’s what’s not washing.

He clearly returned and sparked a further confrontation. Plus what’s he doing with a gun?

If they don’t charge black mobs attacking whites as a hate crime, they should not prosecute a Native American who shoots up blacks as a hate crime.

Equality before the law means, without regard to race, something.

It may be wise not to be wise to bring a baseball bat to a gunfight.

However, that has nothing to do with the current case and the current case hangs three murders on England.

Jake and his sidekick will never see the light of day and will likely be executed.

I agree with your post, but on first scan, that is what I saw. Then re-read it.

Joe England and Alvin Watts have much larger problems than being charged with a hate crime which only carries the possibility of one year in prison in Oklahoma. The primary charge of first degree murder carries the death penalty.

They murdered (if convicted) and I don’t care if they are subject to the death penality like, hopefully everyone else, w/o regard to race.

“Hate” crimes has nothing to do with this unless it is equally applied to every US citizen. It’s not. “Hate crime” is nothing more than a far left voter registration drive.

That was uncalled for. Noprogs posted a SONG LYRIC. What kind of person resorts to the *f word* on an open forum in response to a lyric? Even if you don’t know the song, ask for clarification before descending into the gutter. A simple courtesy, which is sorely lacking on FR these days. Give a little grace to people, for goodness sake.
