The Jury Determines the End of the Case!
July 22, 2013
The jury has spoken and the case is over. When juries render verdicts in our country, cases should end. Nothing positive can come from second guessing judges, juries or trial lawyers.
When the George Zimmerman verdict was read, the usual suspects poured out to foment disrespect for the legal system and stir up racial tensions. The antagonists claimed to seek “justice,” but that can only come from the judicial system, not from unruly mobs. These people seek only publicity and political gain. Sadly, the media accommodate them.
No civilized nation can survive if criminal culpability and legal disputes are not assigned to the courts for determination and the results accepted by the populace. Some among us apparently would prefer anarchy.
