Now You Know

No, by the grace of God, you will NOT plead ignorance. You will NOT testify that you never knew any better because no one ever taught you anything better. You will not plead that you were never told.

Man Acquitted: Evidence "Too Damning"

Oh my dear, sweet God! I am not taking the name of the Lord in vain; I really mean it. This world is nothing but a nuthouse and the inmates are running the asylum:

A MAN who confessed to killing two women walked free from court yesterday when a judge ruled the evidence too damning.

Father-of-two Lyle Simpson admitted being a killer, DNA evidence proved he was at the scene of one murder and he tried to commit suicide a day later.

Yet after three days of legal argument in the NSW Supreme Court, Judge Anthony Whealy ruled some evidence was just too damning and ran the risk of "unfair prejudice" to the accused.
[Emphasis mine.]

Although the case in question took place in Australia, the gross stupidity and the blatant miscarriage of justice it involves are equally applicable to the courts right here in the good ol' USofA.

What hope is there for us when we have morons and monsters in the judiciary such as Judge Anthony Whealy of the NSW Supreme Court in Australia and Circuit Judge George W. Greer (i.e. the Terri Schindler-Schiavo murder conspirator) here in the US?

God save us when those of such mindless evil obtain positions of authority. And to think the Middle Ages are referred to as barbaric! When it comes to barbarity, they can't hold a candle to the barbarity of the 20th and 21st centuries.
