Justice often doesn’t prevail in court

By From page A11 | February 28, 2014

Throughout this past year, I have followed a Solano County court case that held my interest. I had trust in the law and what it should stand for. I have no mercy on those who commit a crime, particularly when children are involved.

After following this court matter for more than a year my interest became deeper and my true understanding of the law saw how things can be twisted. “False” becomes “true” and “no” becomes “yes,” all with no evidence. It’s a frightening thing.

To watch a judge deny evidence from the public defender time after time to defend their client, but sit back and allow the district attorney to have no evidence presented and slander the accused, going so far as to use curse words to describe her own opinion of the accused, is just gross negligence. A judge allowed such mayhem in the courtroom.

A crime is a crime, but it should be dealt with in a decent manner. What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt? How can anyone prove their innocence when judges deny any of their evidence? Why do citizens just sit back and allow such mayhem like it is nothing?

I have followed many articles in the paper. I realize humans can make errors, but errors time after time? That is just not acceptable to me. “No” means “yes”and “false” means “true” without a shred of proof, evidence or DNA?

Our courtrooms and the people in them ruling them really need to be monitored, in my opinion, A courtroom is not a place to make a name for yourself. No wonder our prisons are overcrowded. With people wanting that power to make a name for themselves, no one is innocent, only guilty.

    Thank you for your letter, Nancy. Tyrants in black robes are as big a crooks as you'll find robbing banks. And with all the other shenanigans between the courts, the coroner's office, the sheriff's office, Vallejo police, the DA's office... you'd think we were in the backwater South during the Jim Crow era. Shameful... just shameful.
