    How is this guy supposed to get a fair trial. A real attorney would have a field day with this.

  2. Wheeler says:

    “A jury of one’s peers’ is a guaranteed right of criminal defendants, in which “peer” means an “equal.” This has been interpreted by courts to mean that the available jurors include a broad spectrum of the population…” Or so most definitions seem to convey.

    Sounds designed to be fair. But surely you would not seek to disqualify the system due to a particularly overwhelming scale of violations (?). Wouldn’t that be ironic. And sort of ludicrous.

    Maybe someone (and really, we’re talking anyone) potentially facing ‘a jury of their peers’ in a small community should be more careful not to trigger the sort of Niagara Falls of violations that would result in a very steep climb for their legal representative.

    Or was that simply a thinly veiled indictment of the legal system in favor of some sort of anarchistic societal drug free-for-all?

    By the way, “prohibited person in possession of a firearm” would seem to suggest a prior problem. Something tells me a ‘real’ attorney is already all over this – you know, a prosecuting kind of attorney…

    Wheener…when I saw it was your comment I decided to skip reading it. You are ignorant. Period.

      Oh, Stephanie – don’t pretend you have an attention span beyond what might be required to grasp the contents on the back of a soup can.

      And try not to mix up the ingredients with your latest serving of TROLL.
