    Re: ...Alabama...sigh...you've done it again

    Frankly, given that too many of these convictions for the death penalty and long sentences get overturned on new evidence or prosecutorial impropriety I would like to see the death penalty abolished. One innocent dead person is one too many. Life in prison without parole will do and if it's overturned then you still have a living person to let go. Can't bring them back from the dead to tell them sorry and let them out.

    I guess we can also reframe SCOTUS decisions like Hobby Lobby and the cake baker as "Christian freedom" rather than "religious freedom" too.

    Many Christians on death row treated their victims poorly. They nevertheless received comfort in their last minutes from a chaplain of their faith.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    I'll add that we should not debase ourselves to the lowest of the low as a measure of our own morality/ethics/justice.

    I think it should be reserved for the worst of the worst - killing while imprisoned already on a life without parole, clear evidence of murder of an LEO, etc. I'm familiar with how prosecutors think. All too many have a "win at all costs" mentality and all too many are way too much in bed with the LEOs, whom they're not supposed to represent...

    Testilying! Been a victim, until a prosecution witness corroborated my story. Lucky for me, the prosecution called that witness! Once the acquittal came in, the judge actually told me that doesn’t mean I am innocent, just that there wasn’t enough evidence to convict me at this time. My jaw dropped to the floor! I fought back my rage, smiled and left the courtroom! The officer should have been charged with perjury in my opinion! I know murder is a much more serious offense than I was charged with, but the inner workings of our judicial system is the same.

    You were wise to hold your tongue. He was trying to goad you into remarks he could hold you in contempt for...

    When I lived in Dothan, I sat on a jury in a trial of a guy accused of molesting his 8 yr old step-daughter.

    I was among three of the twelve jurors who held out for conviction. After 2-3 days of deliberation, we couldn't come up with a verdict.

    On the morning of the 3rd day, we the jury sat in an empty courtroom. The judge came in and berated us for wasting the court's time and money, pointedly looking at those of us who thought the guy was guilty.

    I risked contempt after that jury was dismissed. I went up to his office and sat down and told him that I and the other jury members were within our rights to vote to convict or acquit as our conscience sees fit. And he as the judge should only rule on thefairness of the case.

    Luckily, I was polite enough and he had gotten over his anger. I was just ....ed off because I had tried to get out of jury duty (small children, and wife was out-of-town working) due to family obligations, and I had just spent 3 days in a jury box that I really didn't want to be in. And to have that guy talk to us like we were spoiled children. Just set me off.

    I later found out that the accused was part of a good-old-boy network in Dothan. Everybody knew him, the D.A. and even the judge....who should have recused himself. They didn't want the case to go to trial in the 1st place. Small town justice.

    A small town paper publishes an editorial calling for the return of the Klan to “clean out DC”.
