"Send A Message!": Improper Closing Arguments by Prosecutors

Interesting post, here, over on Concurring Opinions by Wake Forest prof and former AUSA Jennifer Collins.  She is collecting inappropriate and outlandish arguments some prosecutors have used in closing.  A commenter notes [and shares transcription of and cite to] a death penalty trial in which the DA arranged the victim's bloody clothes on a chair and commenced a dialog with the victim as part of closing.  You don't see that on Law & Order:  SUV.  Yet.  [Alan Childress]
