Actually it's been quicker than a lot of cases because it's a high profile case. Other cases can drag on for years, being postponed at various stages, but this one got a lot of attention so it moved along quicker.
The entire legal system has been built/designed by lawyers to create as many billable hours as possible. They basically wrote themselves a lucrative career. The entire system is utter nonsense and lawyers should be strung up on lampposts as a warning to others who would attempt to rob the down trodden and unfortunate in this manner.
I'm sorry to say this but it really is time for Western Civilization to disappear.
It had a good run.
be careful what you wish, some cultures will string you up from said lamppost for believing in a different invisible sky pixie (or even just a different flavour of the right sky pixie)
I don't think making the legal system simple, efficient, and straightforward is the same thing as frontier justice. Those other cultures aren't stringing people up because they lack lawyers - they're stringing people up because they're idiots.
care to post an example of a simple law that cannot be circumvented?
Can I post a simple example of a law that is well understood by everyone that reads it?
Can I post a simple example of a law that a lawyer is incapable of twisting into an irrational, society-destroying mess of legalize, complexity, and horror?
That doesn't mean the law is the problem.
Oh, BTW, I did notice that you dodged my question.
You must be a lawyer of some sort - hoping to push the conversation into a gray/poorly defined/incomprehensible area so that you can work your evil. I'll have to drop out of this conversation because you'll have me confessing to the Kennedy assassination before it's through.
We aren't there yet.
Lawyers in the USA are still trying to define the word 'is'. They've a 3,500 page outline and are now working on filling in the actual texts of the various sections. We've a team of 400+ lawyers working on it - ever since the Clinton scandal. I think they're making great progress.
I feel if we immediately burned all lawyers at the stake right now, in one bloodless revolution (1), that Western Civilization would probably last another 200 years. If we don't take this action Western Civilization will be stomped out by more advanced civilizations - like those in North Korea, Iran, or Syria - you know, places where no matter how backwards they otherwise are they've the decency to occasionally identify forked tongued devils and murder them on the spot.
I cleaned that up a little bit because I don't care to offend anyone.
1: Lawyers are actually a type of bloodless parasite.
