The Police State In This Country MUST Be Stopped! No trial, 2 years in solitary after DWI arrest!

This is why the jury system is so very important in this country.

The link below tells the story of a $22 million dollar jury award given to a man held in his county jail for two years without trial, for a DWI. His story is more than appalling!

yes!!!!!!

Wouldnt justice be a bit sweeter if the district attorneys & judges had to pay a chargeback fee out of their own pocket for wrongful convictions. But then again, what would happen to defenders of the likes of OJ. . . . Hmmm. . Is this a way to bring honesty to the judicial system. It certainly puts the onus upon the citizen or sovereign person to discuss with legal counsel what 'needs to be said' but may cause turbulance to the right of private counsel. . . . Interesting. . . . . .

But then again . . . In a society of deferred responsibility it would all be blamed on the jurors. . . .

I agree with to a point..

I don't feel sorry for the residents of that county what-so-ever. For they’re the ones responsible, who keep electing these thugs (Country Commissioners, Sheriff, and local Judges) into office, in the first place.

They'll be finding out the hard way when their new tax bills go up to cover this award. Now maybe they'll finally get there head out of their backsides, and start electing statesmen instead of politicians.

Remember, money talks, and Bull-s**t walks!

Some jail time for the rights violators would have my approval

Put them in a cell with someone they may have arrested previously. Once that happens a couple of times, the so-called authorities would likely be more circumspect when dealing with those merely accused of a crime.

The tone changes when rather

The tone changes when rather than calling them tax payers, you call the voters.

Vote for a corrupt politician, Live in a broke society. In todays age, voting properly isn't enough. We need to convince everyone else to vote properly.

Yep

This will be the norm, except for the 2 million in compensation.

And then

If an off duty cop kills a biker while driving, he doesn't get tested for nearly 6 hours.
