    I editted the thread title. Please keep personal attacks out of thread titles,or put them in the Flame Zone. There was absolutely no reason to put Jillian's name in the thread title of this article.

    My bad. For the record, I wasn't trying to flame Jillian - I remembered a discussion from a year or so ago .about the Rosenbergs and a paper Jillian wrote in law school.

    Probably, jillian was defending co-ethnics. If Jews murdered the Pope, other Jews would defend the act.

    I remember that discussion, too. I was talking about the case from an evidentiary perspective.... since much of the conviction was based on testimony about a desk with a secret compartment which was never produced at trial. And much of the testimony came from Ethel's brother who, on reading the transcript, appeared to lack credibility. But Judge Kaufman was so afraid of weenies like WJ saying he was protecting a "co-ethnic" that he allowed a disgusting trial.

    It also now appears that Ethel's sister in law was the one who should have been put to death rather than Ethel. Ethel's own brother sold her out.

    And you should be really afraid of people who do things like that type of prosecution... because regardless of what actually happened, the trial was a sham.

    That's the most important thing to be learned from this.
