Legal System Out Of Control

by John Reiners - January 5th, 2007 - Hernando Today

Two journalists were sentenced last September for refusing to testify about who leaked secret grand jury testimony to them about Barry Bonds' use of steroids. (They had written a series of articles and a popular book exposing steroid use in the major leagues.)

There is a parallel between that travesty and the CIA leak fiasco which resulted in both the indictment of Lewis Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff - for obstruction of justice and perjury, and the jailing of yet another journalist who refused to testify about sources.

Our legal system is out of control. People's lives are being destroyed for political gain, and as long as you are in bed with the MSM (as the democrats are) you get a free ride. If you do not support the politically correct preferred outcome you are destroyed, by the media and the courts. In the Libby and Bonds cases the prosecutors sent journalists to jail in order to further their case. The difference though is that Bonds appears guilty based on evidence that is public while Libby appears innocent. In both cases though journalists were sent to jail and the only concern of the MSM was whether they were supporting the politically correct desire for an outcome.

There is also a parallel with the Duke Rape Case. It is now positiviely proved that Richard Armitage is the person who "outed" Valerie Plame. The special prosecutor in Libby's case, Patrick Fitzgerald, lied in public and claimed that it was Scooter Libby who "outed" her. It is now positively proved the special prosecutor knew this was a lie when he said it in the press conference.

Like Nifong in the Duke Rape Case, Fitzegerald continues to pursue Scooter Libby even though it is known he is innocent. It is not bad enough he sent a journalist to jail when he knew they were not hiding evidence that would permit him to proceed against Libby. The whole world now knows his whole case is a lie. Armitage "outed" Plame. Yet our incompetent buffoons in the court system permit this injustice to proceed against Libby just as they allow the injustice in the Duke Rape Case to proceed.

At least one balancing power over the corruption of our courts is supposed to be the power to pardon granted to our President. It is sad that our gutless President will not intervene and pardon Libby. Another option would be to fire Fitzgerald. Bush does neither. If Libby was a democrat he would pardon him. Since he is a Republican, and Bush knows he cannot communicate effectively enough to win the battle of public perceptions, Libby simply sits there with the power of the federal government trying to frame him. Nifong is doing the same to the 3 defendents in the Duke Rape Case.

Welcome to the injustices that happen when you are subject to "the rule of judges".
