From a man appointed by Dwight Eisenhower who later said it was the worst mistake he had ever made.

Yes, the same as my comment, re, Judge Green. Perhaps those who so fervently gave a thumbs down, re; Judge Green should also comment on this quote.

More true than I would prefer...

A perfect example of a lynch mob menatality disguised in legality. 5 stars for the truth it points out.

Who uses legal methods for convicting those thought to be criminals.

Mike, Norwalk

Not shooting the messenger; The “laws of nature and of nature’s God” (Declaration of Independence) was to be the existential jurisprudence of a de jure States united. That rightful reality has been replaced with a criminal justice system of despots using a philosophy of men (gods) - (mainly legal positivism, legal realism and maritime jurisdiction executed on land). Carnally compelled compliance, victimless crimes, governmental licenses, larceny (2nd plank of the communist manifesto, funny money, etc.) are all violations of the noble being man, nature’s / constitutional law, and eternal justice.

A crime is; “an offense against the state that is punishable.” (Collins Dictionary of Law) “A crime is an offense against a public law.” (Bouvier’s Law Dictionary) A crime then is not a description of a law infringement but rather, an act contrary to carnal god’s legislation or whims. Any use of the term “justice” associated with/to such criminal system is nothing more than a slaver’s retribution.

Life and liberty are not as much endangered from such anti-lawful methods as they are extinguished. Current system administrators are not just life, liberty and law breakers, they are criminals in their own enclave.
