People v. Hartsch (Cal. Supreme Ct. - June 28, 2010)

After needlessly killing two people in a car, Cisco Hartsch tells his confederate not to worry about it, because "it's not like they were important, like, if they were bankers or lawyers or anything like that."

Which is good, I guess, if your jury consists entirely of bankers and lawyers. But not so good if it's a different venire. Which will sentence you to death, and the California Supreme Court will affirm.

But at least that comment is better than when you also told him: "the bitch didn't want to die and . . . she had nice tits." That's really not going to help with the jury either.
