And when the justice system has failed or become merely a procedural sham what then?
It's a common conceit among lawyers that our legal system is the justice system - which is not fully true: It's a justice system and a pretty good one at that but it's not the only justice system. So there's an assumption that if the legal system is manipulated and even blocked, then there's simply no recourse at all for those on the receiving end of this treatment and so they'll just accept it. Which is clearly what the above people and their allies seem to believe. Well out of the inertia of trust in the system this is true up to a point - but only up to a point.
But when that trust that justice will actually be delivered is finally broken, stoic acceptance of the jiggered results of a broken system can no longer be counted upon either. Instead you will see a reversion to the older, rougher justice delivery firmware that's embedded in our DNA and it will be ugly. But not necessarily unjust.
Given that people have had their lives destroyed for merely making a bad joke on social media, wearing the wrong shirt, answering a hypothetical question about catering incorrectly, and using the wrong ordering of words in a phrase, not to mention threatened with jail for the act of committing politics, I see no reason that Chisholm, Kluka, Lerner, and Machen who have done far worse should be able to walk the streets and go through life comfortably and carefree.
Don't blame me for this - I wasn't the one who deliberately subverted and broke the system of justice that we had."

My recently-passed friend Scott used the term "Shitteree" often, and I don't know whether I've heard it before... let alone with such frequency. He liked that word, and I'll use it in his honor.
The "barley wine" was suggested by H-Dogg when he heard the theoretical alcohol concentration of the finished beer will be over 10% ABV. Stiff stuff.
We are all going to die, but I hope we all live longer and suffer much less pain than my friend Scott. One bout with cancer fucks up the whole shitteree.
Scott, may the Creator welcome you. Cheers, Prosit, and I'm glad you suffer no longer. Thanks for everything you taught me, and thanks to our Creator for letting me meet you. I hope we'll meet again.

His wife called this evening to inform of his passing last night.
He is pain free, and has met our Creator.
Godspeed, Scott. Rest in peace.
