The law, a matter of respect and logic Considering most law seems to be about precedent and not about the actual case being tried, I rarely find myself giving a damn about the law.
If I am to be judged, then judge me. Don't hear the lawyers speak their piece, and then retreat to read how a judge (the word makes no sense if they are not genuinely 'judging') in another case likely barely similar if at all, arrived at a decision.
I have no respect for laws in a system where there is no judge making real judgement calls on the merits of the case before them as presented and nothing else.
Yes mistakes get made, life goes on for society all the same.
I might end up in court tomorrow. I might get run over on the way to court tomorrow and never live to make it to court tomorrow.
The courtroom might burn to the ground from a lightning strike in a fire overnight. The judge might vapour lock while screwing his wife and in the process make it so the case is delayed for a month.
And that would just mean there'd be a month worth of random potential to deal with eh.
I know the law changes from country to country. And I know the law in Canada is likely as full of shit as it is in the US. Our shit will smell different, but it will still smell bad.
But either way, if you plan to accuse me of a crime, you better have proof I committed the crime, our you can go *&%& yourself.
There better be some logic in your law, or I have no respect for it, and I will do what I would do with any other law that was assinine.
I won't care.
