    did not know the secret password for justice and a worker gave it to him so he could get his justice.  Can not let that happen so fire the worker.  

    The judge should be fired for not making sure the testing happened.  This is what happens when we are more worried with legal precedence instead of justice.

    •  More than precedence. (4+ / 0-)

      The judge denied his earlier motions because they were improperly written and did not establish his indigency. Once he drafted a motion with the proper content, it was approved.

        precedence was more important than justice to the judge.  I don't like judges or a system that thinks that justice should be delayed because of the accused  lack of access to a person who knows the secret password for justice.

          The judge should have advised  the accused (or insured he had competent consul) on how to get the testing but fucking proper language was more important than justice.  This is just about making money for lawyers, need hours of court room drama to make a common sense decision to fucking test for DNA.  

        Why is the testing not just in some algorithm the prosecutor must apply to a case.  Why did he have to ask, why was it not just done.

        Form over substance.  Money for nothing.
