Gosnell requests public defender, gets friendly in courtroom

    Seems Dr. Kermit Gosnell isn’t quite aware of the gravity of the charges against him. He put on an odd little show in court this morning, according to accounts by the Inquirer and Philadelphia Weekly.

    The doc (does he still get to use that title?) wasn’t pleased that his 17 properties and a boat were keeping him from getting a public defender. That wasn’t enough to stop him from smiling and waving to the CBS3 reporter in the room.

    Keep it classy, Kerm.
