"I don't think he's guilty. I definitely think there is reasonable doubt," Mamet says... "They should never have sent him away. Whether he did it or not, we'll never know but if he'd just been a regular citizen, they never would have indicted him."Really? Is L.A. known for its unduly harsh treatment of celebrity killers? Hadn't heard that.
Al Pacino will play Spector, for whom Mamet has some sympathy:
He simply wanted to be by himself. Did that make him a monster?What made him a monster was pulling guns on women and shooting Lana Clarkson in the face. And if he wanted to be by himself, then why did he tell his girlfriends "If you try to leave I'm going to kill you"? That sounds like a guy who really didn't want to be alone.
When presented with all the facts, an objective andJackson is running for D.A., and is planning to use the Spector trial to burnish his crime-fighting image. He will also be a character in Mamet's movie, which should be interesting.
unbiased jury found Mr. Spector guilty of Lana Clarkson's murder.
Subsequently, a panel of appellate justices determined that Mr.
Spector's conviction was just and proper, citing "overwhelming evidence" of his guilt. I respect the jury's verdict and the process by which
that verdict was arrived. The true injustice was suffered by Lana
Clarkson, and continues to be suffered by her family and those who love
and miss her.
