Cashill Still Hiding Facts to Defend Killer, Smear Victim
Topic: WorldNetDaily

In his Aug. 13 WorldNetDaily column, Jack Cashill returns once again to his current cause celebre, Steven Nary, convicted of killing a gay man, Juan Pifarre, in 1996 and recently denied parole.

As before, Cashill attempts to denigrate the victim as suggesting he deserved to be murdered not only because he was gay but because he was "an immigrant, an illegal one, who got a green card through a sham marriage" and "an angry coke-head." As before, Cashill whitewashes Nary's actions, not mentioning that Nary allowed Pifarre to perform oral sex on him, for which Pifarre offered to pay Nary $40, or that Nary told police he choked Pifarre for five minutes, or the apartment where Nary killed Pifarre was strewn with blood, or that Nary originally denied any sexual contact with Pifarre and told the Navy medic who treated the broken hand Nary suffered in killing Pifarre that he had hurt it playing basketball.

Cashill bizarrely complained that the district attorney at Nary's parole hearing "chastised Nary for not calling 911 after he had fled Pifarre's apartment in the early hours of the morning. That he had called the police of his own accord days later scored him no points." So it's the thought that counts? Wouldn't a truly repentant killer with conscience have called 911 immediately, when there might have been a chance to save Pifarre's life? Waiting days to call 911 for someone long dead is a meaningless gesture.

But then, Cashill's overeagerness to defend a killer and denigrate his victim is a tad meaningless as well.
