In reply to comment: Judge will NOT do it... (see in situ)

That case was simply not under his

jurisdiction.

He can offer legal opinions and advice, yes, but he was not the presiding judge over Dzhokar's case. A judge does not get to 'choose' what cases he wants to take on: they can only choose whether to continue or throw out a case put before him. He cannot intervene in the fate of everyone. It's not like he can simply walk into the prison and release the wrongly-accused innocents.

But that is not to say that he has no power. No, he has power. His power is in the education of the american people, through talk. Yes, you heard it, through talk. Because if he didn't talk, we'd never know half the things that any law abiding citizen should know about the law and the constitution. If his heart is not in the right place, then we would hear nothing.

So... where does that leave you?

I believe in the freedom to be what we choose to be.
