>>>>It's pretty obvious which side you're on, and the turning and twisting of the words is demeaning and debasing of the law.
Oh? Which side am I on? If there is actual evidence this guy raped her daughter, which side would I vote on if I were on the jury? That I refuse to abandon basic legal principles to get a result I want hardly tells you which side I'm on.
>>>An eighth grader could read it and come to the same conclusions most of the freepers on this thread did.
The courts throughout the years have disagreed with you. 8th graders are hardly qualified to run the Supreme Court. If that's the level you place yourself at, that's your call.
So, also, if the government may dictate to the jury what laws they are to enforce, it is no longer a trial by the country, [*9] but a trial by the government; because the jury then try the accused, not by any standard of their own --- by their own judgments of their rightful liberties --- but by a standard dictated to them by the government. And the standard, thus dictated by the government, becomes the measure of the peoples liberties.
Spooner. Trial by Jury
I'm done arguing with you.
