Homeland SecurityProsecution: We have found a witchradicalize homegrown extremist, may we burn him?
Judge Carlos A. Samour: How do you know he’s a
witchradicalized homegrown extremist?
Homeland SecurityProsecution: He LOOKS like one
James: I’m not a
witchradicalized homegrown extremist!
Judge Carlos A. Samour: But you are dressed as one.
James: They dressed me up like this.
Homeland SecurityProsecution: Ah, no we didn’t. Ok, we did the hair. And the beard. And the thing on his head. And the Hannibal Lecter thing…. but he did turn me into a newt!
Judge Carlos A. Samour: What?
Homeland SecurityProsecution: BURN HIM ANYWAY!
The James Holmes saga is probably one of the most ridiculous pretend prosecutions I’ve ever seen.
The court have already ruled that they can use “truth serum” on the guy as they promise to bring in something like 60 million “witnesses” to say they saw a guy in a gas mask shooting people … and yet there’s not one single clear image of James Holmes in the Century 16 theater that night from the numbers of security cameras at that location.
In a real court of justice, there’s a reason they don’t bring the accused into court dressed up like Hannibal Lecter from Silence of the Lambs. It tends to prejudice the jury in favor of prosecution, thus preventing a fair trial.
But apparently that’s not important in Colorado. Their courts must be interested in something other than justice.
They tried to have little James Holmes manacled and wrapped up like the Butcher of Seville for the upcoming trial but that didn’t fly so the judge decided they would put a restraining harness on James under his cheap suit and literally chain him to a bolted ring on the floor like he was a mad dog.
This is supposed to be a compromise.
Need I remind anyone that the police department who arrested Holmes, found him drugged and out cold in his car behind the theater, and they would have suffered MAJOR losses to police personnel had James not warned them about booby traps set up in his apartment?
Need I remind anyone of the second gas mask found at the end of the building where Holmes could not have been, dropped there by someone who had been reported by witnesses as the gunman as he fled the scene?
Nah, just chain him to the floor like a rabid bear and the prosecution can have Homeland Security standing by with riot guns and armor “just in case” the bailiffs can’t handle a 145 pound kid.
And I know.. we’ll call it “justice”
Fuck it… they’re trying their damnedest to convict this guy in the court of public opinion, they should just bring him into the courtroom in this get-up.
Forget subtle, go for broke. This is America, no one’s paying attention. And if they are, we’ll call ‘em “truthers” and that will shut them up.
