    You don't understand, BD - "justice" does not mean getting out of prison. "Justice" only means one thing - getting put into prison and staying there. Forever.

    Got it?

    Justice denied is inversely proportional to the average retainer paid to the attorney entrusted.

    It's 'American Style'.










    :D

    Being a public defender, I guess that means that my clients are denied maxium justice. Sounds about right.

    Typical, Betty the liberal leaves out a critical part of the argument. Gallion was indicted and tried and convicted in a timely Constitutional manner. Federal appeals are taken up on a first come first serve basis. Let's say he served six years. The appeal was probably four years old. Not bad for the federal system.

    I concur. However, if there is evidence showing a prisoner did not commit a crime attributed to him or her, on what grounds then is such a person being held in prison?

    You know, while I am tough on crime, I do not believe in having people convicted without solid evidence. I would rather see even the guilty walk free than see an innocent behind bars. And considering the mindset of some of our party politicians, I somewhere stated that:

    For the well-being of a State or the nation, it would be best to have more democrats in criminal courts (to ascertain innocent people are not wrongfully convicted) and more republican judges in family courts (to make sure deadbeat parent, not taxpayers, are held liable for the upbringing of their offspring).
