Of course NOT!!!!
It only highlights and underlines the fact the the courts are NOT what
they ought to be.
Why would the courts delay the hearing of such appeals? Why would the
the filing of such appeals. The whole system is obviously broken.
Have you seen and heard of what some police are doing to totally
unarmed individuals? Some such individuals have died by police
mishandling (and that's stating mildly). In many such cases, the
police are exonerated by the courts. Scant few are prosecuted.
Sorry to say, that "democracies" have indeed degenerated or are
slowly degenerating into thuggeries, with the real rulers always
hidden behind the screen of so called elected officials who are
bribed and and intimidated into doing the will of their masters.
Does 911 ring a bell? Or do you believe that it was a real attack
by outsiders? Please do read the philosopher Hegel.
