This is a good observation, RTH.

The way an appeal works is that it must be based on a very SPECIFIC point of law in the case. That's what the defense did. And what a defense attorney is bound to do under professional ethics.

Rotten as the outcome is in this case, I've got to hand it to the defense attorneys -- and think that maybe the voters of this jurisdiction might want to look at replacing their DA. The DA got punked.

That's why some of us keep hammering on the terminology, that it's a LEGAL system, NOT a justice system. It's not perfect by a long shot, and there are so many parts of it, from the juries all the way through to the judges, where things can go awry and justice is not served, but I'm not really sure how to fix it until we have incorruptible, infallible people who are able to journey back through time to observe and record exactly what happened and judges who are able to read minds.

Stupid is the most notoriously incurable and contagious disease known to mankind. If you find yourself in close proximity to someone infected with stupid, walk away as soon as said infection is noted.
