These are probably part of that 4.1% unemployed "they" speak of.
Can't really say what to do with the "father" who shot his son, BUT can you guess what I'm thinking?

Why bother with an indictment, nothing will come of it because the child is too young to testify on his own behalf. We have been here before. It will be the same old story. Little boy can't speak for himself, lower the bond, lower the charge, lower the sentence, get probation, go home. No justice for the child. Could someone out there tell me how much evidence you have to have for an indictment, and doesn't that evidence have to be fairly strong? Just curious.
August 18, 2007 at 12:00am
And yes, THIRTEEN, I know what you're thinking, and I agree.

When you get called in for that giant jury duty call, they pick people who will be on the grand jury. Those people serve for about a week and the police officers will come and talk to them about what their case involves and ask for an indictment. If those people believe that it is likely the person committed the crime, then they put out an indictment. I think trials should be a little bit more like the grand jury process, but in trials there are certain ways that things have to be presented and then other things will be excluded. The grand jury can hear everthing where, depending on the judges interpretation of the rules and how savvy the defense attorney is, they trial jury may have the opportunity to only hear a small portion of all the evidence.

truthandjustice- Thanks for the info. I was under the impression that the trial jury got ALL the evidence that had been presented to the grand jury. I wish it was so that no good evidence could be excluded in trial. Thanks again.

I'm sure some of it has to do with the way evidence is/was collected by the so called officers of the law. if they get overly aggressive with stuff and don't do it right in the first place, then sure it gets tossed. so blame them too.
August 20, 2007 at 12:00am
Actually, it doesn't have to be due to aggressive police work. There is a term used ..more prejudicial than beneficial.. which means that something makes the defendant look bad and doesn't fully prove the defendant committed the crime so you can't talk about that. In sex abuse cases the DA isn't allowed to talk about other convictions for sex abuse that the defendant has had. Sometimes, there can be loads of evidence that when put together lead you to see a picture of what happened, but when you get to court, you only get pieces after it is determined that other chunks are taken out, so lots of things don't make sense. Think about a story where the tv goes out every once in a while...you miss the whole feel of what happened in the movie.

It seems to me that once a lot of evidence is discarded, what is left and allowed in court is more "beneficial" to the criminal, rather than the victim, as it usually means that the criminal is charged with a lesser crime than he actually committed. Could it be that the DA sometimes does not have faith in the intelligence of a jury or are juries that unpredictable?
August 21, 2007 at 12:00am
I agree Boo, it does look to me like the criminal gets more benefits than the victim. The criminal's rights sure protected. I'm not sure I understand what you mean by lesser crime, and the DA not having faith in the jury. It is the judge who discards some of the evidence. The DA is trying to use it to prove their case. Maybe I misunderstood, but do you mean that when the judge discards the evidence, that the DA has to plea the case for a lesser charge? I think juries can be unpredictable, but especially so when they don't have a complete picture of what happened. I think juries are under the misconception that they would hear everything, but that's just not true.
