Speedy justice. . .

OK, so they have a bunch of surveillance cameras show this guy pulling out his gun and shooting all these people. There are dozens of eye witnesses.
Despite that, they are saying it will take years to try this case.

I believe in a fair trial for everyone no matter what their alleged crime, but come on, "years?!" Our system is broke. I'm not sure why it would take so long, but taking years to try a guy of a crime that there is video tape of him committing is ridiculous no matter what the crime.

I hope some judge steps in and stops this bullshit circus and gets this guy the justice that he deserves under the Constitution of the United States and the justice that the victims deserve.

oh, and "not guilty?" G'luck with that.

TUCSON, Ariz. – The man accused of carrying out a mass shooting in Tucson pleaded not guilty Monday to charges he tried to kill Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and two of her aides.
The plea by Jared Lee Loughner marked his second court appearance since he allegedly shot the congresswoman and 18 others at Giffords' meet-and-greet event on Jan. 8 outside a grocery store in Tucson. Six people died, including U.S. District Judge John Roll and a 9-year-old girl. Thirteen others were wounded.

You know lawyers are paid hourly right? My wife's family has a legal case going on right now that was a pretty clear-cut deal - so much so that people laugh when you tell them the details. But the lawyers have been keeping the back and forth going for nearly three years. The side in the wrong totally know there's no case but, what the hell, they're just milking that cow for as long as they can. I seriously think lawyers should be shot. Not metaphorically, literally!

If anyone is claiming years on this one, bullshit. If the defense is claiming it, bullshit. This could be tried in half an hour.

I wonder, though - if the prosecution is saying this, I wonder if they would have reason to believe this guy didn't act alone, and are waiting to catch a bigger fish.

I dunno.
