Lack of jury trials.

Being an expert on all things like the "Modern Major General" of "HMS Pinafore" fame, I shall explain the ugly reasons people avoid trials like colonoscopies.

The federal law and order patriots have 18 month go to trial and lose tax that is always levied and with great glee, I might add. Only the demented, desperate, or those who believe mistakenly that innocent until proven guilty means something, roll the loaded dice facing those odds.

Just crossing off that tryanfs dream box would triple federal jury trials. If we have a law that says if a state attorney files a first degree murder charge and notifies the adoring public that death is on the line, there should be no turning back. He cant use our holy death penalty as a hammer to beat out pleas for getaway drivers and crazy teenagers.

We would have more trials and fewer farces, like seeking the death peanlty for a woman who kills her child, something that has not happened anywhere in this country for over 100 years. We should have no "nolo contendre" pleas for crimes that do not have civil consequences. Allowing some character to deny he broke the law on the courthouse steps after copping a deal would come to an end when he or she had to admit to being a perp or degenerate.

One other thing, all these clowns who brag about being trial pros or have had helped 100,000 accident victims should have to go to court for real at least once every five years or pull down their ads.
