Another Failure by Our Govt to Do the One Thing They're Actually Supposed to Do

How outrageous is this:

Appellate court tosses out murder conviction
Judge failed to properly instruct the jury.

...She said that instructing a jury about the presumption of innocence and the burden of proof is basic to every criminal trial.
"We argue about a lot of things but that's not one of them," she said. "It's so automatic that it looks like it was missed. All of the parties thought it had been done but it doesn't appear anywhere in the trial record."


What an incredibly incompetent judge and prosecutor! And what an incredible waste of our tax dollars! We don't ask the government to do much (well, I don't, anyway), but I do ask them to run a court system in a somewhat baseline competency level.

Fire everyone involved with this case. Now! No excuses for this.

Cody, right on man. Goverment has lost touch with the idea of common sense and the value of a dollar. Privatize the MTA(the fact that these people threatened to strike at Christmas time in NYC is criminal), the postal service(UPS does a pretty good job running a business), and take away lifetime civil service jobs. On any level! Let's be honest the only money losing gambling house in the history of mankind is OTB! Enough said. Pave my roads and protect me from murderous pychopaths, the rest of it leave it up myself and the rest of hardworking America. We'll be just fine. Yikes. Turned into quite a rant.
