Blackwater guards’ lawyers want nicknames kept from jury: ‘Savage,’ ‘Extreme’

• Rawstory
What do you think of the nickname "Murder?" Would it influence you as a juror in a murder trial? How about "Savage Viking" or "Extreme?"

The US Second Circuit Court of Appeals recently reversed an attempted murder conviction for a US gang member, citing what it called the prosecution's "gratuitous exploitation" of the defendant's nickname, "Murder." Now lawyers for two former Blackwater guards want to mount the same defense.

 If I were one of the legal whores representing Blackwater, I wouldn't worry too much about semantics.  Freedom, like everything else in Amerika today, has a price and can be bought and sold on the stock market

'Blackwater guards' = mercenarys - those who serve only for money.
