I keep seeing this poor excuse for a man tell news reporters "Thank you for coming & God Bless You." It is the thank you part that drives me up the wall. This guy has a distorted view of himself to think that reporters or anyone (outside of his immediate family) would be there for him. They are their because of the charges against him. Based on trial testimony, I would find the bum guilty as charged, make him pay restitution and send him to a maximum security prison for a long time.
