    There is the frustration, cancellation, and anticipatory anxiety of the legal process. But there is also the legal expense, which is often the greater punishment, and the greater deterrent f0r others. This is the Obama template. Winning is still losing for the Conservative. If a few protesting parents lose the house defending a case, that will deter parents everywhere. Further, and pardon my cynicism, the case-management paradigm of one’s own attorneys is very often: Complex, expensive, drawn-out, and hostile.

    Jared, I was an “elite” undergrad when and where you were. I had too much to lose, as did similarly spineless faculty and administrators. Maybe we could have stopped all this. After all, we were right there, exactly when and where it all began.

  2. I wasn’t spineless so much as clueless. I was a good little liberal who agreed with everything I was told. My only flicker of sanity was when Arthur Jensen was shouted down and not allowed to speak on campus. I was sure he was a wrong, of course, but I wanted to hear what he had to say. My friends thought silencing him was a triumph; I thought it was wrong.

    If I had heard him speak, it might have saved me many years of blundering.

    We don’t have a legal system anymore. At \$300 to \$500 per hour attorney fees, no one can afford it, even the rich. The costs are an extreme hardship, but even more devastating is the time spent. Court cases drag on for years, consuming every moment of your life. I’ve been through three large civil lawsuits. It is devastating, even when you win.

    The Virginia district attorneys know the defendants can’t defend themselves. They have unlimited public money to spend. Like the Chauvin trial, they will overwhelm the defense with several hundred thousand pieces of evidence during discovery, far beyond the ability of the Defense attorneys to respond. It ramps up their costs and makes a defense impossible.

    If the leftist Virginia district attorneys were interested in justice, they would iron out the disputes over law and evidence during pretrial, with very little costs to either side. Instead, they want to use the Courts as a cudgel to destroy their opponent financially and in spirit, leaving them utterly devastated. They have already shut down the defendants’ access to money, by labeling them as terrorists, so the network of banks, which use a threat clearinghouse, have blacklisted them, forcing them to withdraw their money from bank accounts, but not allowing them to open another bank account for the rest of their lives. They did this to a relative of mine, who is now unable to bank.

    It’s terrorism. The Left are terrorists who are no different their their ideological cousins who murdered 100 million people in communists regimes. During the 1950s, we rightly treated them as the terrorist that they are. They need to be imprisoned or deported to serve their time in the communist paradises they envision, like Venezuela.

    Chauvin was convicted of manslaughter and second- and third-degree murder and sentenced to 22-years and 6-months in prison for simply doing his job -if, at worst, a bit callously and carelessly- because the jurors knew that verdicts of “not guilty” on all three charges or even a verdicdt of guilty on mansloughter but not on second- and third-degree murder would not only incite more riots and death and destruction but also endanger their lives.

    If a cop of any race, especially a black, had knelt on the neck of a white thug and junkie who died of a drug-inducted heart attack, he woild not have been charged with a felony or even a misdemeanor, especially if he was black.
