For those of you who disagree with the Kentucky Grand Jury . . What would you prefer . . . a Kangaroo Court?
Remember, a Grand Jury, much like a regular jury is made up of everyday, average people.
A grand jury is a one sided presentation by the prosecutor ONLY. Legal representation of the accused not allowed. The jury must only find it likely that a crime was committed to issue an indictment.
Now imagine if all charges were referred to trial today. At that trial ALL court rules of testimony and evidence are followed. Not only that, the defiance attorneys are able to challenge evidence, and testimony, as well as offer their own.
Oh, and the criminal jury has a much much higher burden of proof - - beyond reasonable doubt.
If you prefer a kangaroo court, does that also apply to others accused of breaking laws?
- Kangaroo Court. Trhey are guilty and laws and the judicial system be damned
- Every defendent regardless of who shuold be treated to the same rules
