R. Kelly’s Lawyer Compares Sex Trafficking Case to Martin Luther King Jr. Civil Rights Fight!
Somebody is truly drinking the lemonade because they are delirious. Sex trafficking and civil rights have nothing in common. But Kelly’s defense attorney sounds like a true BS artist. Continue on to read about this non-related comparison between R. Kelly and Martin Luther King Jr…
CelebnMusic247.com reports R. Kelly’s lawyer Deveraux Cannick went far on a limb to conflate the R&B superstar’s alleged sex trafficking and sex with teenage women with Martin Luther King Jr.’s fight for civil rights.
While prosecutors paint a clear picture of who R. Kelly is off stage, his lawyer is trying to say he’s admirable like Martin Luther King Jr.?
What? Huh? What in the world is he smoking???
Cannick’s final remarks at Kelly’s trial state that Kelly and King both sought to uphold America’s Constitution, and quoted from King’s famous “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech, delivered in Memphis in 1968 the day before King was assassinated.
Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech. Somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly.
The lawyer added:
That’s all Robert is trying to do…insisting that his client and King both sought to make America be true to what’s on paper.
You don’t have to worry about being beaten, maimed, or killed. You just have to do your job.
Cannick painted Kelly’s accusers as spiteful exes looking to cash in on their relationships!
Cannick’s closing came after 5 weeks in court that saw more than 10 accusers level claims of sexual abuse at R. Kelly, 54, born Robert Sylvester Kelly.
Cannick, however, painted Kelly’s accusers as spiteful exes looking to cash in on their relationships with the singer through lawsuits and book deals. He claimed his client was “never, never coercive” and that the women are “manipulating” the court system for money.
NOTE: He made all his girlfriends call him “Daddy” and controlled how they dressed when they could use the bathroom or eat, how they could interact with men, and whether they could leave the rooms he kept them inside his houses or hotels on the road, women testified.
Cannick closed with this:
They’re all working on those paydays. These folks are capitalizing… You can’t blame folks for trying to make a living but that’s totally separate from trying to take away someone’s liberty.
Wow, we are shocked at how he is trying to manipulate the jury.
