Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
    (January 14, 1958- )
    Born in Kingston, Jamaica
    Killed six people and injured 19 in a shooting on the Long Island Railroad (December 7, 1993)
    Received six consecutive life sentences (1995)
    He represented himself, turning his trial into a farce.
    His proposed witnesses ranged from President Clinton to a man who would testify the government had planted a computer chip in Ferguson’s brain.
    During sentencing, Judge Donald Belfi called him a ‘selfish, self-righteous coward.’
    His crime was seized on by both gun control advocates (who cited him while arguing for an assault weapons ban) and gun control opponents (who argued he would have had fewer victims if the passengers on the train were armed and could shoot back).
    Because he represented himself, original defense attorney William Kunstler was unable to present his theory that Ferguson had been driven insane by living in a racist society.
    His televised trial was overshadowed by OJ’s.
    He was put in the embarrassing position of appealing on the grounds that he had had incompetent counsel – himself.
    He is not eligible for parole until 2309.
