À propos de #DSK, les « témoignages laissent transparaître un comportement de l’intéressé rendant vraisemblable au titre des indices graves ou concordants que celui-ci, bien que feignant l’ignorance tout en admettant cependant qu’“en y réfléchissant”, il avait sans doute été “naïf”, n’ignorait pas l’activité prostitutionnelle des accompagnatrices, lui permettant ainsi de leur imposer un rapport d’exigence fondé sur la force, voire la brutalité du dominant au dominé, sans considération pour l’objet de ses désirs, sachant que s’adressant à des prostituées, leur rémunération – n’en serait-il pas le payeur – le dispenserait de leur libre consentement, ou à tout le moins lui éviterait tout refus de leur part », lit-on dans l’arrêt de la chambre de l’instruction.

Alors, Nicolas Sarkozy, mâchoires serrées, dénonce d’abord une “injustice”, puis a ces mots, beaucoup plus lourds de sens : “Ne vous inquiétez pas, je n’en resterai pas là” Emoi du magistrat, qui interprète cette phrase comme une menace à peine voilée. En cet instant, il se rappelle peut-être le sort subi par ces juges qui ont osé défier M. Sarkozy. (…)
Alors le juge Gentil décide de ne pas laisser ce sérieux accrochage sans suite. Il demande à sa greffière de noter l’incident et de l’inscrire sur le procès-verbal d’audition. Colère de Me Thierry Herzog, l’avocat de M. Sarkozy, qui s’oppose à cette retranscription. Pour ne pas envenimer davantage la situation, M. Gentil y renonce finalement. Me Herzog et son client, furieux, quittent le cabinet du magistrat et filent à Paris.

The Enliven Project: rapists jailed… 

That’s not merely a dark day for the rule of law. It’s a wholesale repudiation of it. The US government is expressly saying that banking giants reside outside of - above - the rule of law, that they will not be punished when they get caught red-handed committing criminal offenses for which ordinary people are imprisoned for decades. Aside from the grotesque injustice, the signal it sends is as clear as it is destructive: you are free to commit whatever crimes you want without fear of prosecution. And obviously, if the US government would not prosecute these banks on the ground that they’re too big and important, it would - yet again, or rather still - never let them fail.

A jury is designed to protect society from lawbreakers, but it is also a means to protect society from bad law.

A jury can nullify a law that it believes unjust or wrongly applied to a defendant.

Jury independence is your power to judge the law as well as the evidence, and to vote on a verdict according to conscience.

This true story occurred in 1386 in Falaise, Normandy, France. A sow was sentenced to be ‘mangled and maimed in the head and forlegs, and then to be hanged, for having torn the face and arms of a child and thus caused its death…As if to make the travesty of justice complete, the sow was dressed in man’s clothes and executed on the public square near the city hall at the expense to the state of ten sous and ten deniers, besides a pair of gloves to the hangman.’ (from E.P. Evans: The Criminal Prosecution and Capital Punishment of Animals). (via Round the Water Trough: Pig pig - Hung for Murder)

In a letter dated Monday, Psychologists for Social Responsibility (PsySR) argued that PFC Bradley Manning, who has been held in solitary confinement at the Marine Corps brig in Quantico for the past five months, may be the victim of political retribution. The group also suggested that the psychological damage Manning may be suffering from spending 23 hours a day alone may ruin his bid for a fair trial.
It had been widely thought Sweden had made the decision to oppose bail, with the CPS acting merely as its representative. But today the Swedish prosecutor’s office told the Guardian it had “not got a view at all on bail” and that Britain had made the decision to oppose bail. Lawyers for Assange reacted to the news with shock and said CPS officials had told them this week it was Sweden which had asked them to ensure he was kept in prison.
Media law experts, including Holding Redlich managing partner Ian Robertson, have said it appears to him that Mr Assange had operated as many other media outlet would by releasing the cables. It was clear a crime was committed when someone took the material without authorisation from a US military computer system, he said. But it was most unlikely any offence had been committed by those who published the material online or in newspapers.
Again she bought his £10 train ticket because he had no cash and said he didn’t want to use his credit card in case his movement was being tracked. He spent most of the 45-minute journey surfing the internet on his laptop, reading stories about himself and twittering or texting on his mobile phone. ‘He paid more attention to the computer than to me,’ she said bitterly.
