Convicting an innocent person is one conviction too many and the jurors...during the jury selection process...must be apprised of such duty to make absolutely sure...beyond a reasonable doubt...the defendant is GUILTY as charged...that the defendant did what the state claims the defendant did. Anything less is anathema to American jurisprudence. Yes...juries do convict innocent people all the time because jurors forego their duty and rubber stamp the prosecution...silently declaring by such kangaroo court decision-making that God will sort out error come Judgment Day.
In the case of "Scooter" Libby...he suffered at the hands of such a rubber stamping jury. He was convicted on 4 out of 5 counts about lying and obstructing justice. His ruination came about because he would not "rat out" then-Vice President Dick Cheney and somehow implicate Dick in a salacious child pornography racket. When Fitzgerald was told "Scooter" would ride the MARE OF STEEL rather than tell LIES to save himself...FITZGERALD attacked using a federal jury system...with "yes" people packed...before a BUSH-hating federal scumbag-judge...using FABRICATED STUFF...all neatly stacked.
Later on...the primary witness against SCOOTER...a tart sporting the label: Judith Miller came forward to say she'd been tricked by the U.S. Injustice Dept. She had been manipulated by FITZGERALD...the maggot-prosecutor...to say things that were not true. She had been scripted by Fitzgerald...and...during trial...although troubled by Fitzgerald's glare and stare...she didn't wish to depart from her STORY since departure meant discrediting herself and the New York Times...a fate she preferred not suffering.
ONLY LATER ON...did Judith Miller discover PATRICK FITZGERALD...with JAMES COMEY guiding him...had USED her to attack. They had pushed her into a story line that was obviously false. She discovered this horrific ruse...however...AFTER the trial...and...long after Fitzgerald had made his escape and was beyond the long arm of real justice. Although she now saw what the Injustice Dept. had done...used her to FOOL a GULLIBLE JURY and convict an innocent man...it was too late and the freedom-hating MASS MEDIA would never tell the world...anyway... about what their brethren did to innocent people.
But TRUTH and JUSTICE cannot be stomped out in such fashion. The evil-doers will be...as some have been already...finally identified and brought to real justice. They'll be held out for punishment...and...marked for future derision and shunning.
Indeed...only on this BLOG and in a few news rags such as the Wall Street Journal will you read abut the EVIL of JAMES COMEY...FITZGERALD...McCabe...OBAMA...ELIZABETH WARREN...SHERROD BROWN...and...a host of other maggots and scumbags...all dedicated to destroying America...skewing its traditional jurisprudence...and...stomping anyone asking questions.
