Before I start this thread. Allow me to state that yes I am aware that every person is afforded the right of due process as far as criminal law
states. I dont wanna someone jumping on that right away.
Now on to the thread...
As I am sure many of you have followed the case of Mr. Duncan. The nutjob who brutally killed a family and kidnapped their two young children for sex.
I have been following the case. The latest turn of events deals with whether or not the poronographic films duncan made of the molestation of the two
children should be allowed to be copied for his defense team. Why are even allowing this to go to court to begin with? The man admitted to the
allegations and their is concrete evidence in the way of video's and digital pictures of the acts he committed, not too mention the eye witness
testimony of the young girl.
Too me, it would seem that his rights to a fair trial are null and void. He's gonna go to trial and in the end he will be found guilty. And in the
end his "defense" will tie up the court, cost a large amount of tax payer money for his defense. The media will rape the case over and over again.
And all for what? A guilty plea? Which brings everyone full circle. We knew he was guilty when it the wires. No surprise there.
Why not save the time, money, and efforts of all involved and give him a hearing before a judge (no jury) and sentence him the same day?
