Lawyer For Lee Rigby's Murderer Slobbers: Killer is 'Upright, Honorable, Sincere, With Absolute Honesty And Moral Conviction'
Because how could running over and attempting to behead an injured, defenseless human be anything other than honorable?
Michael Adebolajo, 28, and his friend Michael Adebowale, 22, hacked the 25 year-old soldier to death after running him over near Woolwich Barracks in south London.
Jurors have heard Adebolajo attempted to decapitate him with a meat cleaver before dragging his mutilated body in front of members of the public.
David Gottlieb, defending Adebolajo, emotionally told the jury: 'Here is a man who killed a British soldier.'
'He is a British citizen and he has shown himself to be honest, upright and honourable.
His voice cracked and he appeared to sob as he added: 'He is someone who is totally sincere, a man of absolute honesty and moral conviction.'
'The description of callous, barbaric, mutilating a body do not fit my client, it's not consistent with being a murderer.'
