    The Kerry case really hung on the fact that the victim was really not a nice guy with previous convictions for using a gun to threaten Social Welfare officers and neighbours taking the stand that he threatened them as well. Ferris went at him with the forklift 5 times. After the first that defence went out the window but the Jury grasped at it, as the defence knew they would to deliver the 'right' result.

    However did people live without radio and television in the past.? It might do them good to do a bit of reading [ not newspapers of course] for a week or two.
