Smart move - he just set it up for a mistrial, although California has a law that says the defendant cannot profit from his own 'deeds'.

Why waste the time on the jury trial?

Based on what I read on the related stories, I don't think he's playing the mistrial angle. I think he has genuine contempt for the legal process (which I agree with him on) and he's just a remorseless killer. He's just a bad guy. He's being honest about it, at least.

Hopefully the COs in prison will rack him down every Monday evening for the rest of his life. Andif he complains, put him in the hole for 30 days on nutriloaf.

I'd say so they can go for the death penalty, but it's California...

That's the only time we take something to trial when they want to plead guilty.

Amistrial? Why? He's allowed to ask for a quick conviction, if he wants.

If he really wanted a quick conviction, he can plead guilty and bypass it all.

I think they think maybe some miracle will happen and the witnesses won't show or something, so they roll the dice with a trial. I've seen one who wanted to testify, against his lawyer's advice, "so I can tell the jury to suck my ____."

Unfortunately, it's not that easy any more. Not around here, at least.
