My problem with our legal system . . .

from enforcement on the street to enforcement in the court is that the State and its representatives (police, prosecutors, juries, legislators and politicians) is that they don't care about justice.

Read the link above - it's yet another example in a long line of what is wrong with the people who run this country.

P.S. My month long self-imposed probation is up and I've decided to come back with a vengeance.

P.P.S. - here are some selected posts from the Agitator that make my blood boil: one, two, three and four. (Note that 3 &4 are Baltimore-related).

We're from the government. We're here to help.

I'm glad the police are out there protecting me!

The author has a few problems with her article. Yes the popo screwed up when they executed the warrant, I remember a case thats on point from Crim Law that dealt with this problem. My problem is the defense attorney should have argued in defense of others, not self. Thats a winning argument. Other problem is Maye's family hiring a attorney with little to no experience to do the appeals. Who are these wonderfucks? And why wouldn't the appeal attorney bring up as the FIRST issue that the jury ruled not on facts but on argument. I'd be pissed too if a defense attorney said find the defendant not guilty or you'll go to hell. Sounds like this guy had incompetent counsel. The article would have been better served painting the picture of injustice by ALL levels of the Mississippi system, not just the police.

True, but you can't ignore the fact that the police lied or exaggerated about drug evidence. The man who was killed was the son of the sheriff, and while the defense attorney was incompetent, the guy shouldn't have ever been prosecuted or arrested - AND when are the cops going to learn to CHECK THE WARRANT AGAINST THE PLACE THEY INTEND TO RAID EVERY TIME?
