You'd Think A Lawyer And Judge

You would think that a lawyer and judge would be more familiar with civics than the average rutabaga.

Judge Milton Hirsch has declared Florida's latest law defining what Stand Your Ground means is unconstitutional on the grounds that only the supreme court can draft such legislation.

No.  Really.

Buddy, the only branch of government empowered to produce legislation is the congress.  That's why they're called legislators.

Yes, Your "Honor", the legislature can demand its employees follow procedures as defined by law.

The several attempts at defining stand your ground and self defense limitations in Florida would not have been needed if prosecutors in a certain geographic portion of the state would acknowledge that "innocent until proven guilty" is one of the cornerstones of American jurisprudence.

The tendency to defer to making prosecutors jobs easier at the expense of the innocent citizens who've had to use lethal force to defend themselves has been rejected, firmly and forcefully by said citizens.

  1. This judge needs to be removed from the bench and disbarred. Unbelievable.
