“US comedian Bill Cosby was freed from prison Wednesday, in a blow to the #MeToo movement, after a US court overturned his conviction for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman 15 years ago.”
It’s saddening how those entrusted to uphold the “rule of law”, have not only used their positions of power to “legislate from the bench” and make our laws mean what they want them to mean as happened in Bostock v. Clayton County, 590 U.S., where the majority on the court used the Humpty Dumpty theory of language to make the word “sex”, as found in the 1964 Civil Rights Act, mean what they wanted it to mean, but now these scoundrels are shown to use their position of public trust to overturn a conviction of a sexual predator who took liberty of sixty women.
Let us remember the definition of tyranny, as defined by one of our founding fathers.
”The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands [e.g.,our judicial system] . . . may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.” ___ Madison, Federalist Paper No. 47
As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances there is a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air - however slight - lest we become unwitting victims of darkness.___Supreme Court Justice William Douglas
