Changing the Country for the Better

Key to changing the country for the better is making some major changes to the judiciary. Not just replacing individuals, but changing attitudes on a wider basis. Not sure we need to change any of our actual laws, since activist judges make new laws all the time under the guise of interpreting the laws we the people give them. Poor Mr. 50 bricks of cocaine. He was in a locked room while they discovered his stash. Good reason to deny reality and throw out the evidence against him. I vote no-confidence.

Funny - Cory and I had a long talk about this issue yesterday. The smallest mistake by a police officer in one sentence of a 20-page report and an entire case can be thrown out, even if it is a case of a defendant being caught in the act of a crime. At best, it's frustrating, at worst, it's a passive form of aiding and abetting criminals - and it happens daily in our country.

I'd agree that many of our laws are fine the way they are - if they were to be enforced with their supposed consequences on a regular basis. But since they aren't, what are we to assume are the real laws of our country?

Drinking and driving is a good example of this, particularly if you look at the percentage of people who actually receive the full penalty for their life-threatening actions.
