On this day in 1995, February 17th, a verdict was handed down in one of the most bizarre criminal trials ever.  Colin Ferguson was charged with six counts of murder in connection with the Long Island Rail Road Massacre in 1993.  His lawyers wanted him to plead guilty by reason of insanity but he refused to accept that plea.  Ferguson fired his lawyers and defended himself.  He took on the demeanor of an experienced lawyer and referred to himself in the third person when he cross examined 17 of the 19 people who survived the shooting spree.
