5 Responses to Prosecutor: Gillett will not be re-tried

    NO big suprise. Trials cost a lot of money. Money that our government(s) lack. WHat he did, compared to many court cases, is small potatoes.
    I totally think he is reprehensable and guilty as sin…but I am not suprised at all. Though I feel for Lynne, and I hope she sues the civil crap right out of this butthead…I’d rather see the money spent to jail molesters and murderers.
    Besides, I think suing him and taking his money would serve as far better punishment for this sub-human jerk.

    Maybe the prosecutor can’t find another 12 people in Custer County smart enough to sit on a jury.

    I don’t think the prosecutor can seat a jury in that county that will look at the case objectively and make a determination based on the facts of the case…as I said, when this story first broke about the hung jury, the prosecutor should have asked for a change of venue! before the first trial…):

    I’m not a lawyer, (thankfully) but I don’t know that a prosecutor can ask for a venue change, I think that’s a defense thing.

    I agree that he should be sued in civil court. What did the pictures show that Lynne was taking? That should be some definite piece of evidence? But I’m not surprised about the trial – is the restraining order still in effect?

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
