Is “Victims Rights Advocate” John Q Kelly Hiding Behind A Wall Of Silence?

We do hope not.

That would seem a very cowardly thing for New York lawyer John Kelly to do. And intensely disrespectful to the real victim here, Meredith Kercher, and her poor family.

We discussed this post on some wild-eyed claims John Kelly made on CNN’s Larry King (the YouTube of which has now been disappeared) with a dozen or so successful and very ethical lawyers who follow the case.

They all in effect concluded that John seemed to them to have acted either incompetently or unethically in sliming the judges and the prosecution and mis-stating the hard facts of the case. And that John really seemed to them to owe the Kercher family and the Italian authorities an explanation or an apology. 

They remarked that if the victim and her family in this case had been American and not British, then John Kelly would probably have been in front of a camera again within a day to say how very wrong and how sorry he was.

Of course the family are across the Atlantic in London and perhaps easy for John Kelly to ignore. But ignoring them WOULD seem to be rather cowardly.

Plenty of space here for you, John. When you decide to do the decent thing.

Google cached this post in less than half an hour. I wonder if anyone can make that hit disappear, as the infamous YouTube of Larry King just did?

The confusers are scrambling for cover, it seems. Increasingly running scared.

The media and the NY Bar Association are getting interested.

Well, just kidding about the Bar Association (the media interest is real) though several readers have suggested a complaint.

He really overstepped the line here, with real hurt to the family of the victim.

This man has no shame and he should come clean if he wants to spend the rest of his life in peace.  Who the hell is he trying to impress?? I think we should pool our resources and send him the First Place award in the “Raunchy Reporter” division.
