We seem to have a spurt in old crimes finally being brought to justice:
While I am a big fan of law and order, I also must question how any case that is over 30 years old can have a fair hearing. Really, since I can barely recall last week, how credible can witnesses be decades later? As I recall, our Constitution guaranties us the right to a fair and SPEEDY trial. Somehow, I get the feeling that our Founding Fathers would not consider a delay of 30 years as falling into the “speedy” category. It’s sad to see the foundations of our country slowly crumble.
