  1. Re: “The charges against these individuals are merely allegations against them. All defendants are innocent until proven guilty in the court of law.”

    That only applies if you are not running for a political office.

    If you are running for political office, people can publish fictitious stories; hide behind the union ‘Breaker Press’ from a non-existent office and the ignorant voters will soak it up like a four year old in kindergarten.

    Each year our education system produces graduates who have less and less ability to think for themselves but they sure know how to purchase and consume chemicals which cloud sound thinking.

    Do you believe this is by accident or by design?

    What is “rights court”?

  2. Rights court is where a judge tells you the bond amount and also tells the inmate that they have a right to medical care and food, and sets their first court date according to the charge made against them.

    I wonder who will be the last person to go to prison for a cannabis case?
