When I worked for the District Attorney’s office in Sacramento, I learned that prosecutors have budgets. They have to justify the cost of a trial. That’s why there is so much pressure on them to obtain a plea bargain. There are hundreds of thousands of criminal trials every year, so it’s hard for me to accept “trial by media.”
The media selects the trials they cover, based on ratings. It has nothing at all to do with the importance of the crime. People like Nancy Grace spend months covering the trial and advocating for a guilty verdict. Big media can’t get enough coverage of criminal trials.
Justice must be served, until it comes down to the President of the United States. Despite all the evidence of Obama’s involvement with civilian terrorists, his obviously photo-shopped birth certificate, his long list of aliases, a phony Social Security Number, close associations with questionable “persons”, and a very strange passport issue with his mother’s travel to Jakarta — Congress sees no reason to investigate him.
The media, which just can’t get enough of Jodi Arias, has absolutely no interest in holding any public trial of Barack Obama. Odd.
