    Re: Genarlow Wilson freed

    So can we appeal Lucca's suspension as "cruel and unusual punishment"?

    DO you think we could get it before the US Supreme Court?

    I am very happy for this kid though. Hopefully he still gets the chance to play football and get an education somewhere.

    Very good news. It's really unbelievable that he actually got to jail in the first place, and even worse that it took two years to free him.

    I thought that the worst part of this case was when the DA was asked about it, and he said that he didn't agree with the law, but instead of acting against it, he said that he would do his best to ensure that the kid went punished for breaking the law. If you don't agree with something, grow a damn spine and act out against it. ****ing lemmings.

    Good point, 62. The prosecutor's comments were nothing more than double-speak. A prosecutor pretty much ALWAYS has discretion about which cases to pursue and which ones to leave alone. If he doesn't like a particular law, he can decline to prosecute cases under that law. Regardless of what he said about not liking the law, he intended to get a "win" against Wilson. Wilson wouldn't take a plea deal because he thought he did nothing illegal, and the prosecutor decided to make an example of him for not "cooperating." Right, Mr. Prosecuor! "I don't agree with the law" my a**!

    Prosecutors like this guy and Rob Nifong in the Duke lacrosse case don't engender a real sense of confidence in our criminal justice system. It seems to more about "winning" (and political posturing) than actually ensuring that justice is done.

    Re: Genarlow Wilson freed

    I don't see this as a "win" at all. It's still a felony conviction and a sex crime, which gets him lumped in with the child molestors and all the "you can't live here" laws in most states.

    While it appears to be a s'mother crime (they were really going after him on the rape charge, and could only get the "other" charge to stick), this seems, on the surface to stink. Bad.
