this is why I am going to move to New Guinea and become the new God of a tribe of pygmies.

@Jade_Phoenix: Pygmies live in Africa (mostly) iirc. New Guinea has headhunters, cannibals and lots of Christian Missionaries.

Well blow my lips off! I Wikied it and they DO live there! Have fun JP! Don't forget to post pictures of your temple & stuff!

Cats, you can shield evidence from anyone not involved in the trial (press.)
This is a new trial apart from his previous conviction. He still needs access.



@CodeJockey: I'm thinking of Sirhan Sirhan, the guy who "allegedly" shot RFK. He pled guilty to avoid the death penalty, then tried to change his plea.
The judge refused to let him change it, gave him life and sealed ALL the evidence. In all his appeals he was never allowed to see a single bit of evidence against him.
idk if that's normal, but I'm thinking it would take an order from a higher court to un-seal evidence, not likely in this case, eh?

ummm no this is just not right, some times u gotta say fu ck the law there is no way this should be happening


There are many situations where there is no option that is completely right all of the time.

You have to look at which option is the least wrong.

I argue that presumption of innocence and the right to review evidence is the least wrong option.

You want to remove those two principles from your country's legal system. I argue that would cause far more harm to far more people than having them does, therefore your choice would be more wrong.

I am so sick of neo-cons finding any excuse they can to strip away individual freedoms and constitutional rights all because of a few bad apples.

my solace lies in three facts.
1: he's getting piles of media coverage.
2: prisoners watch television.
3: even prisoners hate molesters
this problem will solve itself.

@sbeelz, they will have to make a specific amendment that stops this kind of behavior. when there are sensitive materials involved; that satiate the lust of the defendant in ways that break the law, simply cannot be allowed.

Seriously though, laws aren't the word of Allah, when poo like this happens it shouldn't be this hard to go to a judge and put a stop to this type of thing from happening.

@sbleez

Why not just pass a law that requires the defendant to go before a judge and provide a reason, or a hypothesis of what they hope to find or be able to prove by viewing the evidence if it is obscene after say 5 guaranteed reviews? I don't think that would be a violation of the defendants rights. It's a violation of the victims rights to continue to let them be exploited.

BTW- how does the prosecutor propose to "change the law" in order to stop this kind of thing from happening? Take away people's right to defend themselves in court, or take away attorneys' right to review evidence?

It's already been said a bunch of times here- as disturbing as this is, we can't take his right to adequate legal defense away because we wish not to be disturbed. Angilion, Madest, Gerry etc hit the nail on the head.

In order to guarantee everyone equal rights, you unfortunately have to give them to scumbags too.


That's it in a nutshell.

Either you keep these ideas:

Innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
A fair trial including review of the evidence.

or you discard them and accept the numerous massive injustices that will result.

Arguing that they should apply to some people but not to others just doesn't cut it. They're principles that either apply to everyone all of the time or they're worthless.

@highonhuffin: Clearly you're opposed to those principles. Maybe you want to lynch people instead of having a criminal justice system that inconveniently gets in the way of you torturing people to death for your own pleasure?

How do you like your style of argument being applied to yourself?

Not cool BUT the news is spinning it like he is sitting in jail looking up child porn on the internet and that is not true, he is looking at evidence that happens to be child porn that he owned...he already saw it. Now yes this time it is pretty messed up but the courts will attempt to stop people from representing themselves and seeing the evidence..there won't be a clause to let people represent themselves and see evidence as long as it is not pornographic. The point being that in THIS case yes it is a crappy situation but changing the laws over 1 case will result in many people who won't be able to view evidence when representing themselves. The government lives for little hot button issues like this because it gets people fired up and people act irrationally allowing the government to go behind our backs and change the laws so they screw us all!

IT is what it is. I think its horrible and sad for these kids but he has a legal right to do this and if we take it away from him we take the right to view evidence from everyone else.
