I'm not judging...

.., just making an observation in regards the guy arrested for the murder of that girl from Crescent City:

I find it a little hard to swallow that the guy drove all the way from Arcata to Crescent City to buy three ounces of pot. Why didn't he buy his pot in Arcata, a place known for having lots of dope?

But maybe he's just funny that way? Supposedly he works at a plant nursery in Crescent City and commutes to the job from Arcata. That's kind of hard to believe, as well, especially with the price of gas nowadays and I would think a job in a plant nursery probably doesn't pay much.

But I'm not pre- judging the guy. We'll see what else comes up as the case develops.

I'm curious, too Fred. It'll be interesting to see what facts emerge.

Don't you sometimes wish we could turn back time, Fred? Prevent things like this from happening.

Isn't it strange that our nation has the most amazing and fair system of justice in the world, yet on the basis of some hastily-written newspaper article or a 60-second TV news report on a breaking story, we are willing to say with certainty, the SOB is guilty, hanging is too good for him.

I say, the media gives us a general idea of what happened. All the known facts will be presented at trial. Then justice will be done.

God Bless America and our system of justice. If anyone thinks our system is bad, go travel around the world. Let me know when you find a better one.

You want a good example of the lynch mob mentality, check some of the comments on stories on the Times- Standard web site. Pretty scary stuff.

You are right about that. But did you notice, someone talked with the editor of the Times-Standard, and she has cleaned up that Topix forum.
