Juanita is not fond of Nancy

A Money Saving Idea

July 06, 2011

Do you have any idea how much money this country spends on the judicial system?  A lot, that’s how much.

We gotta pay judges, bailiffs, court reporters, district attorneys, lots of flags for the courtrooms, not even to mention the $8 a day that jurors make in my county and the stinkers want chairs and lunch breaks to boot.

All this money is flat wasted.

We could just hire Nancy Grace to look at police reports and make a decision for us.

If you have any dingbat friends who think Nancy Grace’s obsession on people’s guilt is a good thing, please remind them of Nancy Grace’s actions with the Duke lacrosse team and the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping.  And, of course, the suicide of Melinda Duckett. And then there’s this:

The Supreme Court of Georgia has twice commented on Grace’s conduct as a prosecutor. First, in a 1994 heroin drug trafficking case, Bell v. State, the Court declared a mistrial, saying that Grace had “exceeded the wide latitude of closing argument” by drawing comparisons to unrelated murder and rape cases.[8]

In 1997, the court was more severe, overturning the murder-arson conviction of businessman W. W. Carr in the death of his wife. While the court said its reversal was not due to these transgressions, since the case had turned primarily on circumstantial evidence, it nevertheless concluded “the conduct of the prosecuting attorney in this case demonstrated her disregard of the notions of due process and fairness, and was inexcusable.”[9] Carr was freed in 2004 when The Georgia Supreme Court ruled unanimously that Fulton County had waited too long to retry him, thereby unfairly prejudicing his right to a fair trial[10].

Despite upholding the conviction she sought, a panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals wrote in a 2005 opinion that Grace “played fast and loose” with her ethical duties and failed to “fulfill her responsibilities” as a prosecutor in the 1990 triple murder trial of Herbert Connell Stephens.[11] The court agreed that it was “difficult to conclude that Grace did not knowingly use … [apparently false] testimony” from a detective that there were no other suspects, despite the existence of outstanding arrest warrants for other men.[11]

She’s a hate filled harpie who spends her life rounding up lynch mobs to attack innocent people.  She makes a mockery of our criminal justice system.  She is the Tammy Faye Bakker of law.  And those are her good points.

Real grown up women, do not hide behind a crime victim to justify snarling indictments of people and cases they know nothing about.

Harpy is right, and a sanctimonious one at that... sigh...
