What is this country’s Judicial System coming to!?

Posted by on April 1, 2005

I don’t know why this infuriates me so. I mean we knew the man was incompetent but his testimony yesterday after pleading guilty just crawls under my skin. His testimony ANY day regarding this is just pathetic.

“I exercised very poor judgment in the course of reviewing the files,” Berger told reporters outside the courthouse after pleading guilty. “I deeply regret it. It was mistaken and it was wrong.”

“My motivation was to help prepare myself and others,” he said.

Hmmm…so you “mistakenly” stole documents from the National Archives, took them home, and destroyed them by cutting them up with scizzors? Ya know, I came up with some pretty good tales attempting to get away without doing my homework in grade school but this one would have gotten me a very sore butt.

$10,000 and no jail time for stealing National Security Documents? G. Gordon Liddy was convicted of a felony and served 4 years in prison for attempting to steal campaign material. Sure…that makes sense.

This line makes me wonder how much he was paid by the Kerry campaign/Clinton cabal:

He would not answer questions as to why he decided to destroy three of the documents.

So far this week we have watched a woman starve to death because the Judicial System said it was OK while a Trade Lawyer/former NSA walks for stealing and destroying National Security Documents. Is it just me or is something askew here?

I’ve been torn about the Schiavo Case. The law is what the law is and the Courts had their say which amounts to State Sponsored Torture in my view. No one had the stones to do anything about it…although doing something about it would mean Jeb Bush calling out his “posse” to go liberate Mrs. Schiavo and placing his brother in a terrible position. The laws that put her, and us, in this position need to be changed. The US Senate passed an Unconstitutional Bill of Attainder and folks screamed about the 11th Circuit ignoring what it said. Whatever. The Senate screwed up in a BIG way but I’m growing used to that. The Republican Leadership won’t step up to the plate and stop the unconstitutional actions of the democratic minority for reasons that escape me. So…a woman dies a painful agonizing death and we all pat ourselves on the back because, once again, we have let the Judicial System work it’s magic on a case originating in Florida.

I’m not at all torn about the Burger case. He’s a thief. He stole from MY National Archives. He stole National Security Documents because MY Congress trusted him. He’s a thief of the worst kind. He betrayed the trust MY Country placed in him. Treason? No. IDIOCY? Certainly. But once again we’re faced with allowing the Judicial System to work it’s magic or forming our own little gang of vigilantes and taking care of this problem. Clearly the vigilante approach is out of the question. I wouldn’t touch Mr. Burger for fear of catching something and he’s not worth the bullet or the rope anyway. So he walks.

As I am typing this the Pope is near death in Rome. It’s clear he’s gonna die and has no quality of life right now. Let’s just go ahead and kill him. He can’t eat or drink on his own so remove that feeding tube and watch him dry up and starve. The US Supremes have quoted International Law…why not apply US Law to the Vatican? Put him out of his misery right? That’s what we did in Florida right?

While we pat ourselves on the back for killing Mrs. Schiavo and the Pope I think I’ll go to the National Archives and steal the Declaration of Independence. $10,000 is a small price to pay compared to what I could get for it on Ebay.

    the pope can feel and speak and respond to what is happening, terri schiavo had irreparable brain damage which made her unable to feel. look up what the cerebral cortex does and then remember that terri’s was fluid, not brain matter.

  2. DeepThroat Says:

    Steve:

    For one thing, there was hardly unanimous agreement among “experts” regarding Terri’s condition. She was not brain-dead: such diagnosis had never been made, even by those who WISHED for her death. The only such “hard” evidence available was a CAT scan. Not an MRI. Not a PET scan.

    Secondly: you have no idea whether Terri could feel pain or not. However, I find it hypocritical that the New York Times runs a story suggesting that death by starvation is euphoric, while in the same breath imploring that Terri cannot feel pain.

    Michael Schiavo’s case should have been thrown out on standing. He was SHACKING UP with another woman (whom he called his fiancee for ten years, and even had two kids with her).

    This hardly makes him a demon; however, this commonlaw marriage does leave reasonable doubt as to his ability to make an objective decision in the best interests of his wife.

    Sandy Berger got off WAY TOO EASY.

    His actions consisted of multiple felonies: stealing classified information, and destroying classified information. Because this involved at least five documents, we are talking about at least ten felonies.

    Had this been you or I, we would be looking at 5 years on a plea bargain, if the DOJ was in a good mood.

    Berger will lose his security clearance for three years. Again, this is a love-tap on the butt. People are denied security clearances for far lesser infractions.

    Guys, you are missing my point. As I knew would happen as soon as I posted this. Gus, at Command Post, missed my point too.

    The question is what do we do when the Supreme Court holds up a lower courts ruling when it just. doesn’t. make. sense?

    I posted the below at Command Post in response to this item:

    Niether the Berger case or Schiavo case effected people deeply enough and on a large enough scale to cause action to be taken. Eventually either the weight of various cases or a single case will tip the scale and people will start to wake up. Our Judicial System Makes. No. Sense. We have convicted pedophiles walking the streets while white collar criminals like Martha Stewart serve a single year and leave prison better off financially than when they went in.

    Regardless of what you think about the individual cases, the disparity in punishment is stunning!

    What do we do when a/another case comes around the simply demands a more reasonable response? We can no longer rely on the judicial system for justice.

  5. DeepThroat Says:

    I didn’t even comment on that one because I already agreed.

    At some point, one of the other branches of government will need to assert itself. That will only happen when people give enough of a damn to demand it.

    I hate to say it, but I don’t see it happening.

  6. pilgrim Says:

    exactly. So…are we happy with a runaway judiciary and a laissez-faire Legislative and Executive branch? If not…THEN what? What PEACEFUL recourse do we have?

  7. DeepThroat Says:

    None. It’s THAT simple. Unless the exec and legislative branches take decisive action, there are only two alternatives:

    (1) continue the path toward Talibanization

    (2) you and I KNOW what the other alternative is.
