a dark, dark comedy October 17, 2007

In the on-going black comedy entitled the United States Criminal Justice System, a man who shot & killed a judge presiding over his rape trial, then shot & killed a court reporter and, while escaping, shot & killed a deputy who chased him outside… (let’s stop and take a breath here) and then shot & killed a federal agent along the escape trail, and then held a woman hostage in her own home before surrendering… this man’s trial on these charges has been suspended because of lack of funding for his defense.

Being completely without money he has been appointed three private lawyers from the public defender’s office. The latter states that the $1.8 million dollars already allocated to them is gone and in fact "the defense has been inadequately funded." The man has confessed his crimes on videotape.

If justice cannot be served in this kind of high profile case – involving no less than the murder of a  judge in his courtroom -  than god help the average citizen who looks to the courts of this country to render them justice.

Read it and weep:

Murder trial halted over lack of money
