From The Philadelphia Sunday SUN. If I sounded emotional, it's because I'm responding to the hundreds of people who speak to me every week about the loved ones they've lost. I carry those stories with me everyday.
In re: The Ahmaud Arbery and Kyle Rittenhouse trials: Some of America’s court systems, through the judges they appoint,or elect continually make a mockery of, and have invalidated their own civil and criminal rights granted via their constitutions (i.e., federal and state constitutions) by not protecting, and or affirming through their rulings the rights of all of the citizens. Judges continue to be verifiably different in their rulings on the civil and criminal rights of white and black citizens evidenced, and affirmed in the corpus juris under the headings of motions, appeals, rulings, reversal of rulings, remands, and certiorari grants at the supreme court level. Judges of lower courts of jurisdiction, and appeals courts of jurisdiction should not be allowed to continue over a period of years to rule in such a way as to result in the aforementioned various legal procedures of correcting lower court and appeal court errors in their interpretations of substantive law without punitive actions being taken at the state or federal level to remove the corrected judge from the bench. Justice is not served when a judge practices judicial over-reach (i.e., often referred to as judicial discretion) not founded in the strict observance of the doctrine of stare decisis (i.e., case law) resulting in a higher court corrected finding that corrects a prima facia legal hypothesis of the defense or prosecution that was put forth in the court of jurisdiction. The judges in the Arbery and the Rittenhouse cases, through their actions, are laying the foundations for possible appeals by the prosecution and the defense. These judges are playing politics with their positions by ducking their responsibilities while at the same time attempting to save their political reputations at the local and national levels. The Arbery and Rittenhouse trials expose two classic examples of the kind of judges that should be removed from their benches. #law #legal #civil #supremecourt
