Whoa there (Off-Topic)

The governing bodies take it upon themselves to decide if people have infringed on the rights of others in a criminal trial and if so convicted are relieved of your rights to property, liberty, etc. every single day. That is exactly how it works. Even civil litigation follows that conceit.

Perhaps you could argue against it occurring between individuals, but the logic is there in most interpersonal disputes.

So a jury of my peers isn't a thing anymore either? Just whatever the man decrees, huh?


Heh - my wife works for a bail fund. You'd be amazed at the numbers of days people stay in jail without access to a jury of their peers.

I suppose justice delayed isn't the same as justice denied... but The Man has a hell of a lot of power in our current society.
