One Response to Rather than packing the Supreme Court, make judging impartial — New English Review’s Iconoclast blog

    at one time only a few years ago, i would have disagreed with U, believing as i did that all judges strove to be impartial. as usual, as an indoctrinated citizen who has been self-educating himself over the past few decades, it never occurred to me that if there is no incentive to be impartial, judges would have *every* incentive to put their thumbs on the scales of justice. my eyes were finally opened to this by reading of several cases in which judges blatantly ignored exculpatory evidence brought to their attention by the defendant’s attorneys, and finally by judge sullivan’s decision to become the prosecutor in the general flynn case.

    at this point in time, with national (as opposed to federal, which system has not existed for the past century or so) prosecutors being graded solely on the number of convictions they win, rather than on whether or not their cases were justified and fair, i now call the former DoJ the DoI instead, with “Justice” having become “INjustice.”

    May God help the poor citizen who gets his foot caught in the gears of the court, because neither his guilt or innocence have much to do with the outcome of the trial process.
