This week’s topic didn’t offer much of an opportunity for any of the usual wise cracks. It’s about Brian Nichols, the defendant in a rape trial who was being led into court, took an officer’s gun, and shot the judge and others.
He wasn’t handcuffed because apparently they don’t do that so as to not bias the jury. As a result, Nichols’ next jury will be really biased– cuffs or not. Forget that the jury wasn’t even seated in court. How much of this politically correct tripe.. not to mention how many dead people… will it take before some of this PC ridiculousness is put to an end? Give a read to “PC: From bad joke to tragic tale“.
