Are we losing our justice system?

25 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

This is the most absurd questioning by a judge in years. This democrat judge is railroading a citizen and denying him his civil rights. The rumor is the Obama admin is pressuring this woman and after the last few scandals who would doubt it (obviously the delusional such as ninja, aka NNs, are excluded)?

In the States judges are selected politically from the ranks of the legal profession. It's amazing you don't get more of this sort of thing. They are also given too much power with tribunals being used rarely and there being no particular consequence to having a decision overruled than that the decision is overruled. Finally, in the States there is a "right" of trial by a jury, as though a group of randomly selected people have some special wisdom (although as a practical matter this has been pretty much overturned by having a complex set of "rules of evidence" giving the lawyers final say in these things anyway).

Sorry mate, I can't quit. It's my country, I fought for it and I have a brilliant kid. I won't let these scumbags take it all away and I'll never subject my child to a socialist world such as ninja and his ilk prefer.

That sort of thing actually convinces you?

I can't.

It is an audio !

You didn't even bother.

Sorry but unless I want to go through a not-very-difficult proxy procedure such things are not available to me, and my particular situation in life suggests that I keep my nose clean.

I pretty routinely resent people who post such things with no understanding that local situations differ and offer no verbal description.

On a positive note, this idiot, biased judge has made an appeal easy to get. Is it just me or does she looks like Chris Farley in a wig? I guess that was uncalled for but it's an amazing resemblance.

The u-tube and facebook censorship here in Vietnam is a bit of a joke, since of course everyone knows how to defeat it. Here I am talking about it so openly. The official reason has to do with the presence of disturbing things of a violent nature and the presence of pictures of certain items of women's clothing that is contrary to local taboo. The situation is common not just in Communist countries but in others like Malaysia and Singapore.

I don't think the problem is political since the authorities do nothing about the widespread use of proxies.

Our "justice system" was lost decades ago, at the altar of the bogus war on drugs.

Now with Patriot Act, NDAA, MCA and a host of others, constitutional principles have been thrown out the window by our elected representatives.

As for the lady judge, it seems to me she's doing fine, considering that the defendant and his wife have already attempted to deceive the court about financial matters. I am happy to play the 'innocent until proven guilty' game, and I am also capable of seeing the forest as opposed to the trees. Z is lucky I'm not sitting on his jury.

By far the biggest flaw in the American justice system, is allowing people to be proven guilty by the free press long before they come to trial.

This practice essentially nullifies the burden of proof on the state. That is, the state purposely leaks damaging information about defendants to the media, in an attempt to tilt the scales of justice in the state's favor. This, on top of their advantage in terms of resources means that you're essentially having to prove yourself innocent. You have no assumption of innocense, and they see to that, unless it's a police officer on trial, and then YOU NEVER SEE THESE LEAKS. What a crock, as obvious as the sun blazing in the sky.

You want to know why we have so many wrongly convicted people behind bars? It's because people have to prove themselves innocent, after the state assists the media in convicting them in the public eye.

It's for this reason, that I have less and less faith in the U.S. justice system. You're guilty by smear campaign, long before you even go to trial.

That's one big thing I like about the justice system in Great Britain. I'm pretty sure that this protection is afforded to defendants, and while there may still be leaks, they are miniscule by comparison to the U.S. Justice System.

What we have is jury by MOB verbal violence. What we have is justice by public hanging, before there's a conviction.

SHAME .... EVIL .... beyond words in some cases.

I don't have much doubt that the American judicial system doesn't work. Indeed, I have little doubt that any judicial system works. I also agree that it may be that the free press in some western countries contributes to this, although I might say that sometimes it has the opposite effect.

A Dagger at the Heart of Justice - Mark Steyn

"Needless to say, even in a nutso jurisdiction like Florida, the crime of “child abuse” was never intended to cover a wizened old granny kicking the ankle of the punk who’s mugging her a week before his 18th birthday. But, if Aggravated Pedophilia is what it takes to fry that puffy white cracker’s butt, so be it. If, for the purposes of American show trials, an Hispanic who voted for a black president can be instantly transformed into a white racist, there’s no reason why he can’t be a child abuser, too.

The defense was notified of this novel development, on which the prosecution (judging by the volume of precedents assembled) had been working for weeks or more likely months, at 7:30 that morning. If you know your Magna Carta, you’ll be aware that “no official shall place a man on trial . . . without producing credible witnesses to the truth of it.” But the rights enjoyed by free men in the England of King John in 1215 are harder to come by in the State of Florida eight centuries later. So the prosecutors decided, the day before the case went to the jury, that Zimmerman was engaged in an act of child abuse that had somehow got a bit out of hand: No “credible witnesses” to this charge had been presented in the preceding weeks, but hey, what the hell?"

Good post, speaking of Magna Carta, and don't forget the old Habeas Corpus, which has been sold down the river by our elected officials. :tu:

Steyn nails it. Thia case was a travesty from the beginning, right up there with the Duke Lacrosse case.

Have Grace and Sharpton apologized to them yet? Jackson offered to pay for the stripper's education even after the lacrosse players won their court case. It's like a "negative" of the Scottsboro Boys. We repeat past mistakes in new guises.

Race problems are a business that Jackson and Sharpton have made millions of dollars at. The big losers are the only people in the US that happen to have "leaders". What other ethnic group has that badge of dishonor and how have here two corrupt morons come to represent the whole of black Americans? Is black American OK or has it changed again? How ridiculous a question and what a great venue for strife. You are an American period.

Black on black murder is an atrocity that no one talks about. An unprecedented murder rate, thousands of young men destroyed over nothing and the "Black Leaders" couldn't care less. Talk about it and you are called racist! How absurd and how can a country survive when a whole segment of their population is committing genocide on itself and we shrug it off?

Blame the democrats and the race pimps (same thing I guess).

Jackson and Sharpton speak for themselves, not most Black Americans. White progressives help to put them in leadership positions in ways that patronize Black citizens in that White progressives act like these two speak for all Black citizens. As far as media censorship goes, Black-on-White crime is the third rail, and their cowardice is disgusting when it comes to the coverage of such demonic crimes as the Wichita Massacre. I put an assailant in the hospital when I was confronted with becoming a statistic when I attended a university by a dangerous neighborhood. I used my fists, not a gun or a knife. Certain groups attacked certain groups if their skin was too pale. This was ignored by even local news outlets, but the few reverse cases were headline news for weeks. I despise such hypocrisy.

Thank you, sir. I might add that an elderly Black gentleman defended and supported me through the aftermath. I have genuine affection for the elderly residents of such neighborhoods, and I blame *just* the misguided attackers, not a whole race. I hope that we can find our way back to a time where individual, not group, culpability is paramount.

I spent most of my young life in the military and we quit the racial BS long ago, in the 1940's. My ass depended on the guys mainlining that jet and color was irrelevant. Honestly, life is tough out there and the color of your skin is pretty inconsequential on a carrier, 3,000 miles from home at war. The rest of the country could learn a few lessons.

I knew an elderly black man, that had been in the military since he was seventeen. He traveled all over the world and we had stayed in touch my whole life. I asked him where he had been treated with the most respect and he told me that this is where he planned his retirement. He said, "I think that says it all".
