Yeap. Innocent until Proven Guilty.
Remember waaaaaay back when... A high profile crime would occur and it was obvious to everyone what happened.
The suspects' innocence would be defended by some strong patriotic official (take your pick: Sheriff, Congressman, etc.) that reminded the public
"Innocent until proven guilty" all the while knowing (or at least suspecting) they had enough evidence to convict the suspect.
Wull, that was decades ago... Many of those 'suspects' were able to get off... I'm not being specific because it happened so much... They get off
because some slimey lawyer got them off on a technicality.
What makes anyone think this guy INS'T
insane? That's a perfectly legal defense.
Power to the twinkies! and the twinkie defense. Look it up if you haven't heard of it.
The Congress' knee jerking activity, based on the shooting, is a glaring reminder about their priorities.
Mark them this time and remember.
BTW. The "Repeal The Health Care" bill is a reminder who is on your side or at least showing off for you.
They all know nothing will come of it... but it's a reminder to people where the politician stands... who votes YES and who votes NO.
Really doesn't matter if the shooter makes it to court. He's certifiably insane from every thing that he's done so far that has been witnessed and is
proven. He can have "life in an asylum."
We don't execute retards even if some people think
that's the way that America should behave.
Edit to add:
From the few scatheing posts that I've read on this thread ... I'm amazed at the knee jerking public response about this shooting. Vitriol? It's
inside the public and for what reason?
MSM found something to exploit 24/7 followed by Congress that sees all the worker bees buzzing about.
I think the Congresswoman's opinion will be important. She can no longer function in her current capacity.
Why haven't they held a special election yet?
Where is the buzz about that?
She's an employee injured on the job and she won't be getting a doctors excuse any time soon.
We wish her the best but as she well knows ... life goes on and she isn't returning to work
One last Edit:
If the government wanted to show how GREAT they are ... they would get a special election going...
Doctors have already said that she has a long road to recovery.
Reaction these days is REALLY F'ed up. Really F'ed up. America is truly umop ap!sdn (upside down)
