Description

On Friday, June 21, after months of deliberation, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its opinion in the Curtis Flowers case. In a 7-2 ruling, the justices threw out the conviction from his sixth trial, in 2010. The decision of what happens next -- whether to release Flowers or begin a seventh trial -- now lies with the same prosecutor who's pursued him from the beginning: Doug Evans.

wow .......Mary Catherine Brisco's statements are filled with so much prejudice and non-logic I can't even begin to point out her errors. "That was my daughter *he killed*"? "I don't understand why he just don't leave it alone - we just have to go through this so many times..."? Blaming Curtis Flowers for "bringing up these issues in the first place"?? wow.... just wow. My guess is, because her daughter died, she wants someone to blame, so she decided to settle with the easy target - Curtis Flowers. She blames Curtis Flowers for "bringing up these issues in the first place", but we all know that it was actually Doug Evans who brought this whole thing up. Why isn't she pointing the finger at Evans? Probably because she's one of those people who blindly accepts what the authority tells her without coming to her own conclusions, *and* she's racially prejudiced. I found it very hard to listen to her statements, and I hope I'm not alone in feeling this way.

I've said it before, Doug Evans is the criminal here. He is an evil, godless, prideful person.

yeah for justice.. sorta?! If Doug Evans is stupid enough to try Curtis's case for a seventh time, maybe he should 1. ask for state assistance (as suggested by the ussc), 2. get ANYONE ELSE to do it, or 3. select the jury blindly, like how they select contestants on The Voice, so he can truly say he didn't pick people based on the color of their skin, but by the answers to his questions!

I had never rushed to play an episode like this. I'm so glad that they overturned his verdict. But he's not a free man just yet....
