First of All. Society Doesn't Create Criminals
The premise that we are all blank slates at birth is a lie. Every man is born with the power of choice. Some are not taught the difference between good or bad . Others are just so corrupted that they are beyond redemption. In the end, fear of punishment will keep some of the wolves at bay. However, that punishment must be quick and, in some cases, must relieve Society of the burden of wasting resources on those that are just not worth it. The Constitution explains what all of our rights consist of. The Police Officer that took Floyd's Life will go through the same system that Floyd went through, multiple times. In the end, a Jury will decide his guilt or innocence and his punishment if found guilty. A mob of criminals and Psychopaths using Floyd's Death as an excuse to commit crimes in his name should also be arrested and go through that same Justice system. There simply is no justification for hurting people that never hurt you. Or using someone's death to steal other people's stuff. Mobs of Criminals should be treated the same as individual criminals. Prosecuted and Punished for their crimes.
George Floyd Was a Hardened Career Criminal
Floyd was a Wastrel that never produced anything of value in his entire life. Don't blame Society or his Parents. Don't blame the color of his skin. Blame his desire to take what didn't belong to him from his innocent victims. Floyd isn't a hero or a role model. Quite simply, he is a thug being used by other thugs as an excuse to take away more stuff from innocent people without paying for it.
The Statistical Truth: Most Convicted Criminals Can't Be Saved
Criminals Don't Have Special Rights Under the Law.
The Constitution states you have the right to an attorney, It doesn't say you have the right to expect Society to pay your legal bills. However, in the Interest of Justice, lets say we agree to provide the criminal with representation....
All Lawyers Should Work as Public Defenders for Two Years
It makes more sense for the State to hire Public Defenders at the lowest cost possible. If a criminal wants better representation. They should pay for it. In other words, Judges assigning expensive Private Attorneys to defend a criminal is not a right guaranteed under the Constitution. A better alternative is to mandate all law school graduates to perform two years work as Public Defenders. And pay them a Public Employee Salary during that time. Since Lawyers become Lawmakers and Judges, they need to become intimately acquainted with those breaking the laws, and their victims. This would help thin the herd of those that think money should be an attorney's only concern.
We Need to Stop Federal Appeals for the Death Sentence
Federal Appeals are just another way for Expensive Private Attorneys to raid the Public Treasury. There is no Federal Appeal Granted in the U.S. Constitution of Bill of Rights.
You Have the Right to a Grand Jury Indictment for a Capital Offense
Article the seventh... No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
- US Constitution-7th Amendment
A Grand Jury is a Group of Private Citizens that review the evidence and decide if it merits a Dismissal or a Criminal Trial. This is the first protection against politically based or otherwise biased prosecution. If the Grand Jury Indicts, the Formal Jury Trial in a Capital (Death Sentence) case can go forward. If the evidence is lacking, the Prosecution will be forced to present additional evidence or witnesses or the Case will be dismissed.
You Also Have the Right to a Trial by Jury if Indicted by a Grand Jury
Article the eighth... In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.
- 8th Amendment-US Constitution
All 12 Jurors Must Agree on a Guilty Verdict in order to find the defendant Guilty of a Capital Offense. Otherwise they must agree on a Lesser Offense to Convict. This is an extremely high burden of proof. Twelve individuals in total agreement is something you will rarely see in any setting.
The Federal Court Appeal Process is Unconstitutional for the Death Penalty and not a Right Specifically granted by the Constitution.
Article the twelfth... The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
