JLN,

As you may have gathered from our earlier encounters, I respect your intellect on a number of levels. Even though I really cannot help but disagree with your positions on the interpretation of the law, I recognize that your positions are consistent with those of a number of law professors, many of whom are ultimately as partisan as I can be in other political areas.

The power of the grade book afforded them safe haven when confronted on their often hypocritical positions and allowed them to shut down discourse. One of them happened to be one of the founders of the Federalist society, orhers in more social settings happened to be your favorite Justice and yet another was the then Solicitor General of the United States. The same arguments you're making against certain :wink: "activist" judges are somewhat similar to those they ham handedly made then, and for the same wink, nod political reasons you'd like to believe don't win the day in front of them.

They'd also argue specific language, until they couldn't, with their fallback always being "their" arrogant interpretation of original intent. Right up to the abomination and contradiction that is Citizens United. But I never heard the straight faced, full throated discussion of the constitutional power of the federal judiciary from them in the positions you've taken here

I deal on a daily basis with lawyers who are braindead morons. I also talk to them IRL. :)


Get a brian moran! Us lawyers are reel smart.

We have an entire 390+ page thread on this board dedicated to the concept that a person can be both a lawyer and a brain dead moron

Quote:
Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday said he'd be issuing a new directive this week aimed at increasing police seizures of cash and property.

“We hope to issue this week a new directive on asset forfeiture — especially for drug traffickers,” Sessions said in his prepared remarks for a speech to the National District Attorney's Association in Minneapolis. "With care and professionalism, we plan to develop policies to increase forfeitures. No criminal should be allowed to keep the proceeds of their crime. Adoptive forfeitures are appropriate as is sharing with our partners."

Asset forfeiture is a disputed practice that allows law enforcement officials to permanently take money and goods from individuals suspected of crime. There is little disagreement among lawmakers, authorities and criminal justice reformers that “no criminal should be allowed to keep the proceeds of their crime.” But in many cases, neither a criminal conviction nor even a criminal charge is necessary — under forfeiture laws in most states and at the federal level, mere suspicion of wrongdoing is enough to allow police to seize items permanently.


This guy :lol: :cry: :lol:

Yeah, this shitheel is planning to rob U.S. citizens but we're more concerned with some fantasy of him being a Russian agent.

Police in this country are nothing more than armed tax collectors.

Even the supposed "good-ones" are pieces of shit as they stand by while the rest of them rob the public blind.
