Comment on Did Missouri Just Execute an Innocent Man? Very Likely. by Weezy McDuffin Mon, 25 May 2020 03:55:10 +0000 “Since his conviction, blood splatter stain evidence has been added to the list of forensic junk science that has been largely debunked.”

Excuse me but this is what Dexter relied on to solve murders.

“ Judge Gorsuch found no compelling need to intervene with the State’s right to kill a person for killing a person.”

Fake Merrick “you can have your trucker job and freeze to death or your life and no job” Garland strikes again.

Comment on What Will Jurors Be Like Post-Covid? by Oscar Michelen Fri, 01 May 2020 15:51:33 +0000 In reply to Jimmy Sandwich.

I agree that there will be no return to normal without a vaccine.

Comment on What Will Jurors Be Like Post-Covid? by Jimmy Sandwich Fri, 01 May 2020 06:59:36 +0000 “…and are thinking about getting back to normality.”

Not to put a damper on the parTy but maybe you can explain how we’re going back to normal until we reach heard immunity (60-70% or more of the population has been infected) or we manage a vaccine, which is far from a slam dunk. Until then, what exactly is our plan because I have yet to hear one. We’re not testing much and when we do there is no contact tracing and quarantine. Back to “normal” seems way off and, in fact, virologists are talking about a more severe fall/winter “second wave.”

Stay out of the courtroom and wash your hands.

Comment on SCOTUS Overrules Non-Unanimous Jury Verdicts But Were Stare Decisis and Abortion Also on Trial? by Tommy Onetoe Tue, 21 Apr 2020 05:18:40 +0000 SCOTUS doesn’t and never has “called Balls and Strikes.” They make it up. And the fact that one person invented his own cockamamee theory about the 14th amendment shouldn’t carry any weight. When you make up the law at minimum you should have to get 4 others to go along to expect it stand merely by virtue of its decision. I have another rule I just made up. Once “finding” a right it should never be taken away, which disposes of abortion. If they continue to pick that right apart or explicitly overturn it I think the court will lose the smidgen of credibility it still has, if it has any.

Comment on Progressive New Law in Virginia Removes Barriers to Proving Actual Innocence by Ricky Lamborghini Thu, 16 Apr 2020 19:07:46 +0000 limiting most people to one handgun purchase a month; and increasing the penalty for “recklessly leaving firearms” in the presence of children; (4) giving localities the ability to remove or alter Confederate monuments in their communities, and begin the process of replacing Virginia’s statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee in the United States Capitol; and (5) expanding early voting to 45 days before an election without a stated excuse; repealing the state’s voter ID law; and making Election Day a holiday. That last one was a double-whammy because to maintain the same number of state holidays, he also repealed the Lee-Jackson Day holiday, established over 100 years ago to honor Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.

That any state has a monument let alone a holiday to a Confederate officer is obscene. Why is a “process required to replace it” ? Just take it down today and destroy it as well.

The one handgun purchase per month made me laugh. That’s 12 per year. That can start to add up. With no limit. America is crazy with its gun fetish.

Election Day a holiday is a no-brainer. It should be a paid Federal Holiday.
