Guilty - Take Him Down

The BBC are reporting that Peter Blake has been found guilty in the first crown court criminal trial to be held without a jury for more than 350 years.

Urm... Why bother reporting this? It's fairly obvious he was going to be found Guilty. That was the whole point of 'Trial Without Jury' wasn't it?

It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside knowing this little trial took place and that we no longer need to rely on our peers to weigh up the evidence against us.

Actually, that's not true. It sends a very cold chill up my spine.

  1. A sad and shameful day.

    The State is now all powerful. No one a few years ago would have believed we'd allow this to happen here... but we have.
