So… I’m done with the whole murder trial thing. It was a real pain in the ass, the first two days went something like this.
Sit in a room for 2 hours, with a bunch of cops and lawyers.
Move to another room, sit for two hours with a bunch of cops and lawyers.
Move to a room near the court room, sit for two hours with a bunch of cops and lawyers.
Stand in front of a judge who tells you that by law you have to come in again the next day then go home.
I had an inside view of how the legal system works or should I say doesn’t work.
You have a room full of cops and detectives complaining, saying stuff like.
“I hope this goes to trial today, it’s the fourth time I come in for this shit”
Minutes after that someone would come in and tell them their case has been pushed back another month.
How do we let these criminals and grease ball lawyers get away with this!
They find any excuse to postpone a trial, I heard stuff like:
“The defendant is sick and can not be prosecuted today”
“The defendant would like to start a motion to suppress evidence”
“The defendant would like to bring in a new witness”
Most of these guys posted bail and are walking the streets.
It’s only when they’re in jail that it goes to trial right away.
I could feel the frustration of the law enforcement people in the room.
Waste of time and tax money.
We need to revamp the system, have deadlines and not allow so many postponements. The case I was involved in was 4 years old.
After I was done with my testimony the family of the victim were all hugging and thanking me.
