It's like some dystopian future court.
You know, something suddenly just came to me:
Technically, these people "presumed innocent until proven guilty" (which we all know is a huge joke), but the fact that this man is still only
ACCUSED he is treated as if he is guilty (per the prosecution, and apparently the judge). I'm not not saying he didn't do it; I fully believe that
he probably did and there is no big conspiracy like some suggest, but the fact that he is treated, even in court by the judge as if he is already
guilty, shows how the whole institution is going completely down the drain.
While he's been in court many times before (and possibly drugged?), the fact that he will likely be covertly bolted down (read: shackled) during the
trial, is interesting. Why not have a closed courtroom? Why not many things rather than tying him down, essentially? How often does this happen, and
how often will it happen in the future. Reminds me of some of these movies about a dystopian future where the "suspect" is brought in with shock
collars and stuff. Which reminds me...
A few years ago there was a police shooting near where I
. The suspect, after being on the loose, was caught and is not close to trial. He has been to court many times for prelim hearings, etc, but
now the prosecutors want him to wear a 50000V shock belt during trial. That is insane. But perhaps a better idea than shackled to the floor.
How soon before it becomes commonplace?
Are these people such "monsters" that a a room full of deputies can handle a potential situation? Oh, yes, it's the psychological aspect of the
suspect knowing he can't do anything.
He is already/still a prisoner, in essence. He will be found guilty.
What will they do with Tsarnaev?
