It's worth noting (or maybe not, but then tough shit for you) that in situations in criminal cases that recur and can be generalized (somebody claims to have killed in fear for their life despite all sorts of indicia that there was no reasonable basis for that fear, person walks out of The Gap with three unpaid-for sweaters wadded up in the bottom of her backpack, person pulled over with a bunch of weapons and marked bills from a bank robbery in the trunk, etc.), there are usually a few common "defenses" (often based on some lame movie or tv show) that are basically a Hail Mary pass thrown in the hopes that it might resonate or sound plausible with at least one jury. Generally, the key characteristics are similar to what you see here -- not completely impossible to imagine in the abstract, no matter how implausible in the particular case at hand.
