why would the lawyer create such a wild story, which can be considered liable/slander if untrue, about a serial killer in another country. and go through so much effort in it
As entertaining as it is to speculate about his mental state, LM premeditated the crime, went through with it, and then fled. An unhappy abusive upbringing doesn't excuse his actions so much as offer a cautionary tale that benefits breaking those cycles of violence, isolation and abuse. Also, the victim's choice of kink isn't that unusual, so if he was into a little slap and tickle then so be it. It doesn't disrespect him to bring it up, and it also doesn't imply he deserved the events involved in his murder on the basis of lifestyle choice. Just my 0.02.
Libel and slander are the least of least of Luka's worries now, and Mr. Salta knows it. That's why he waited to release the info until today. It's not as if Luka's going to lawyer up and sue him in a N.Y. court.
i mean for him to flat out lie about his dealings with LM and completely fabricate those emails and obtain and photoshop that picture?
that is an awful lot of lying to the world for an officer of the court.....by him lying like that he could put his name and career in the sh.tter....
i dont think he is lying at all...
dum spiro, spero
I'm curiuos about the lawyer's comment that LM wanted the story of his abuse out there. When did LM tell him this?
I have been following this case and just wanted to chime in and thank EVERYONE for their input. A lot of good points being made. I think we aren't even close to discovering everything going on with this case but you all are doing an amazing job.
Member of the Federal District Courts for the Southern and Eastern District of New York)...
he is not some random anonymous person saying "LM stayed in my room while i boinked him for 2 nights and this is my story"...
those words he said to the reporter are there FOREVER.....you really think he would risk his name and his career (he has his own firm) over some POS like luka by fabricating a huge story complete with picture?
i just dont see that....
dum spiro, spero
the only person that would have anything to gain and have clear motive is LRM, either in creating a BS story, being a complete lunatic, or in the billion to one chance there really is a manny.
edit: as someone also mentioned.. He risks getting in major trouble with the BAR. if lrm didnt sit in his office, tell him this story, and that he wants it released if **** hits the fan. then he could face major career issues
I'm open to hearing what possible legitimate reason anyone thinks this guy had for committing one of the most basic ethical violations of the legal advocacy system.
it is possible the are in on it TOGETHER, as part of a broader long term defense of insanity, or that there really is a manny.. but thats getting a little out there..
if he goes to to police or the media, without LRM's wishes. he gets in major trouble. he goes to the media cause he says thats what LRM tells him to..
and how did the lawyer get the means to doctor up a photo of LRM, or even get a real photo of a beaten up LRM(i dont think its real but could be i guess..)
while this may sound like im showing sympathy for luka aka POS, im not....
BUT to step outside of the box of our anger and digust......the likelyhood that LM was a victim (of his parents, johns, relationships, etc) thurout his life is VERY VERY VERY plausible. it does not make an excuse for what he has done but it explains what he became and what he has done.
im not sure why people cant believe that many of his writings could very well be self-confessions........even horrible horrible people need an outlet and many people use writing as an outlet.
while LM has proven to be a liar, that does not negate the fact that he also may tell the truth at times too. it does become a matter of "the boy who cried wolf" but even that boy in the end told the truth......and nobody believed him because of his lies. lying does not negate truth telling ever happening.
and i absolutely believe that he has been a victim of abuse thruout his life and coupled with possible brain imbalances...the product of that is one f.cked up person who does extremely f.cked up things....
dum spiro, spero
