Re: another reason to hate CA
Back in the day you didn't need a law degree to sit on the bench or run for office. As a matter of fact most small town circut judges were "civilians", and common sense prevailed. Since the "legal eagles" changed the system look at what has happened. (a) You have to blame someone, no matter how redicoulous the sitituation, (b) You have to win at any cost in order to advance your career and get into polotics.
Look at what is happinging all around us, espically in the higher profile cases, the lawyers are having a field day at the taxpayers expense, and common sense has gone out the window.
The best example is the guy here in Cal. who was hired and licenced by the state to grow medical marijuana. The Feds procuted him and were able to get the fact that he was state sanctioned kept out of the trial. They got there conviction, but when the juriours found out all the facts, after the trial, they were about ready to burn down the fedrel courthouse. To late, the conviction still stands. Now it appeals time, and guess who's paying for that.
Most recently is Kobys lawyers. They are trying to get into the record, and possibilly into law, that you can't rape a promusicous woman or a prostitute. MMMMMM---let's see where that one goes?
