Proof Cameras In Court Can Be A Disaster

Published by at 7:11 am under All General Discussions

Watching the circus that is being called ‘a court hearing’ on Anna Nichole’s remains is prime example of why cameras in court can be a bad thing. That judge is a disaster as he rambles on, crooning to the cameras and trying to showboat. What a joke.

    There is nothing about this situation that has any bearing to reality.

    From what I hear her death occurred at a hotel that is on Seminole Indian property which is like a third world country that our courts have no say over.

    Good almighty the woman only had three pounds of tits, two can be good or maybe in two and a half, but does she deserve all of this?

    I just got thru listening to a few minutes of NPR. Do they have a rule that you have to at least sound gay to be a contributor to their programming.

    If the parties to these hearings and the judge could figure out a way to sell the rights to this spectacle as a reality show, poor Anna would be lying in the ice box for the next three years.

    What a disaster that hearing was. I can only feel sorry for the mother of Anna Nicole. No one knows how it feels to lose a child to drugs unless they have been there. A person’s personality completely changes once they start going down Drug Road and even with rehab and becoming clean and sober, those personality changes are never completely reversed.
    Anna Nicole went from being a part of her family to being manipulated by those who enabled her drug use. And what was really a sorry spectacle on the part of Stern’s lawyer was to try to protray Anna’s mother as a hateful person because she had standards for her child that did not include drugs.
    The judge was grandstanding for his own means. Pathetic. And in the end, he made a decision that could have been acheived in 30 minutes; in other words, he kicked the can down the road to someone else.
    I hope someone is looking into this poor woman’s death and the fact that there was one central figure involved when both she, and her son, died.

    Merlin, I sometimes listen to the liberal talk radio station out here, (it really makes me laugh) and they have a guy who reminds me of this old cartoon character. (I don’t know how old you are so you may not remember this). It was a pessimistic depressed hyena who was always whining, “It’ll never work! We’re all going to die!” in this real crying whiny voice. This air america guy sounds just like him! I hear him and laugh my ass off.

    I don’t know if you guys have heard, but the reason this judge is stretching out his fifteen minutes of fame is because he wants a TV show! He has actually made a tape and peddled it to the networks. He is sucking up as much limelight as he can because he wants to be the next judge Judy. Disgusting!

    I will give you a clue , that I am almost old enough to have invented dirt.

    It’s not a pretty choice of options.

    At the current time I have death chasing me like a well worn option.

    I am fighting the fight but I realize he will eventually win.

    A damn shame really.

    Sometimes I don’t post here for a bit of a stretch. It is because I have a hospital here I do consults with like a revolving door.

    It doesn’t matter what my issue is, it is only one of the many things that can kill you.

    I can only hope that other posters here can carry on with the common sense and decency that I remember as a hallmark of my childhood.

    It is very scary to think of the alternatives.

    You are watching from a distance. I live in Broward County and we , the tax payers have to pay for this circus. Now we are flying her body in a private plane with the guardian and the pathologist!!! Of course they’ll come back in the same private plane. We have to pay for the honoraries of the Guardian plus all the police escorts etc.

  9. MerlinOS2 says:

    Broward County the place that has to do this wanna be preference of every thing so wrong it can sing it’s own song?

    First they go hanging chads and now they have something of a stink that we if we choose to follow it have to clearly hold our nose.

    Give it back, I don’t want it. But somehow I feel cursed with it.

    I got a question.

    Do three pounds of chest make a woman?

    I have issues with that and more questions that any of you can guess.

    Nope, but it’s not a bad start.

    Let me guess , you are a sucker for pizza with two toppings.

    Had to step away from the puter for a moment for a couple of shots of nitro.

    Was having my first cup of morning coffee and broke out into a major sweat and was shakin so bad my hands were doing dances around the home keys. Only a half a cup down so it aint from a caffeine overdose.

    It’s gettin bad when you no longer have to dial 911 because you have learned all the EMT’s schedules and you have them on your speed dial list.

    Actually, just the opposite of disaster.

    PROOF that our courts have gone insane. If waltoon’s courtroom also had media coverage, a lot more Americans, arleady suspect of this stinking system, would have seen more.

    Not that it’s going to change minds. Given how Libby’s case is not getting coverage; but the insane antics of Seidlin brought him not only mega-media attention. It may have slapped him around a bit? So that he now knows Judge Judy’s producer isn’t calling on him soon, with a contract.

    While, so far, because so many lawyers are turned out of librawl artsy-tartsy schools, you’ve got more of them now, than used car salesmen. (And, that’s a job that fills up resume paper. As most people try it. Few succeed.)

    It’s probably also true in law. A lot of mega-bucks for a few. But many have holes in their shoes; expensive lifestyles. And, expectations from others they just cannot meet.

    While if you asked most people, what does the CHICAGO SCHOOL mean, they’d probably tell ya the mafia. And, they’d have no trouble extending this thought all the way up the ladder to the supremes. Expecting that all those appointmenrs are political. And, you can BUY EM.

    Other than that? If you’re watching DC for the outcome on Libby’s trial, you’re one of the few. (Like an assortment of people who still gather round for Cindy Sheehan.)

    Does that mean it falls off the radar? Well, it’s been a bruising political fight for the president. And, an expensive one for Libby.

    While it seems, off to the side, the donks have figured out a way to besmirch our troops, so that volunteerism will drop off. On the other hand? If it doesn’t? We’re living in a HOUSE DIVIDED.

    This time, though, the donks and lawyers are on the losing end. They go thru the motions on stage. But their hearts aren’t anywhere close to what was happening during the Civil War.

    Just an ungainly UNcivil war, now. With the judges finally showing the world that no matter how good the bedrock is on the foundations of our US Constitution. It’s still a pin in the middle. With two sets of idiots, at each end of the see-saw. One goes up. The other goes down. Aren’t the bumps thrilling?

    You’re scaring me, MerlinOS2. I hope you’re OK.
