So... when a low-level crime lab technician is shown to be chronically incompetent -- not dishonest, like this judge -- law enforcement wails and rends its garments over the scores and scores of cases that will be thrown out and judgments overturned. And that's just by association, not by proving actual, individual errors. Seems like this would be a literal get-out-of-jail-free card for an awful lot of convicted individuals... unless, of course, her willful subversion of justice is deemed less serious than the lab tech's dirty test tube.
It's been said over and over, but it's really difficult to continually read these reports without imagining what OUR lot would experience if we lied repeatedly and shamelessly, forged documents and generally tried to flim-flam just one -- let alone several -- federal courts. Any of us would be spirited away before we could spell "incarceration".
Ahh, but would the YouTube detector-bot kill the stream if the audience sang "Good Morning, Dear Teacher" instead? I've been at conferences where they play that song in honor of someone's birthday, and invite the audience to sing whatever lyrics occur to them. Legal for the conference organizers, since it wasn't subject to the Copyright extension Act in 1976; and suborning 450 individual cases of infringement. Go get 'em, boys.
And stop giving these things dopey names... "The Freedom Act"; what the hell does that mean? Why not go straight to the drunk-driving-missing-child motif, and call it "Melanie's Law"? Then he can get it passed "... for the children".
"... people are allowed to distribute materials, constitutions, etc...."
"Constitutions". Love that. Any old small-"c"-constitution you might have lying around. Bring a variety of different constitutions to school, and you can stand on the concrete square and hand them out. One's as good as the next, I guess.
