Blind Devotion?

http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/06/19/12298878-jerry-sanduskys-wife-testifies-she-never-heard-or-saw-evidence-of-abuse?lite

In this one, Jerry’s wife says she didn’t see anything in regards to the charges against her husband and my first thought was, “Of course she’d say that… because she probably didn’t.”  So her testimony to that effect would be the truth, right?

That his defense team abruptly ended their case doesn’t sound like a good thing, like, maybe they realize that there’s no way they can get the jury to acquit their client?  There are some serious allegations involving a newspaper reporter, witnesses being coached, stuff like that; technically, it can be issues that can get a case thrown out or result in a hung jury and a mistrial.

But how likely is this to happen in this particular case?  In theory, the state wouldn’t have bothered to ask for and get a grand jury if they didn’t think they had a solid and spotless case; judges don’t like having their court time wasted by frivolous and shoddy casework where due process and procedure hasn’t been followed within acceptable limits.

The thing that got my attention, other than what Mrs. Sandusky had to say, was the actions of this reporter, who won a Pulitzer Prize for exposing the situation and who, reportedly, advised one of the victims to get an investigator to help make their case.  She did this – whether it was morally or ethically correct is a matter of discussion – and then, as the media loves to do, they hid behind their right not to reveal their sources and sought to get the reporter’s appearance in court tossed out.

It’s funny, huh?  Reporters have the job of getting the story, getting to the truth and all that, but when they put themselves in a position where they might have to appear before the bar, oops, nope, ain’t gonna do that – civic duty and responsibility my ass!  While they’re always operating on the premise that the people have a right to know, they are often quick to invoke their right not to tell – is it me or is this really kinda fucked up?

So, closing arguments are on the horizon then the judge will hand the case to the jury – it will be interesting to see what their verdict will be…

About kdaddy23

Not really sure what to say; there's a lot about me that can be said but the basic thing is that I'm just a guy with a lot of things on my mind that I need to get said. I have to add that if you're not old enough to deal with adult issues or you find them offensive, you might want to stay out of my head...
