Tallahassee, we have a problem.
You can bet there's a lot of good chemistry going on between many Florida defense lawyers and their clients after learning the state's top law enforcement agency is in a bind.
Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) ssaid they suspect one of their own lab chemists swapped prescription drugs for over the counter meds in dozens of cases, reports the Orlando Sentinel.
we had a similar incident here in MN. seems when one public defender actually thought it might be prudent to check on drug tests when a client she was pretty sure was telling the truth about not having drugs came up positive...it seems the drug testing lab they were using didn't even come close to following standard testing practices. they were even using contaminated equipment for many tests. the repercussions are still being felt in the court system.

JACKSONVILLE—
A Florida murder trial, stemming from an argument over loud music at a gas station that ended in the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager, opens on Monday, reviving a debate over the state's gun control and self-defense laws.
Michael Dunn, 47, faces first-degree murder charges in the death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis on Nov. 23, 2012.
Dunn's attorney, Cory Strolla, has filed motions asking the judge not to allow references in the trial to comments Dunn made in jailhouse letters or phone calls where he referred to Davis and to some inmates as “thugs”, and made other “alleged racial comments,” according to court documents.
In a letter that Dunn sent to a local television reporter, he described Davis as a thug.“This case has never been about loud music,” Dunn wrote to news anchor Heather Crawford in October.“This case is about a local thug threatening to kill me because I dared to ask him to turn the music down.”
Strolla also asked that the judge bar the prosecution from referring to Davis as a “victim
(Well if he wasn't a victim, what was he?, I can't believe the judge allowed this along with the public record of his thug comments)
http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sfl-loud-music-st...
Blame the victim. Davis was a high school student who worked part time at Winn Dixie. He had gone Christmas shopping with his friends.

Who in the he11 buys wine at a convenience store?

Dunn is in deep sht.

BTW Charlie Crist's Democratic political benefactor is John Morgan who's group has successfully managed to put medical marijuana on the November ballot. The experts claim that this will bring many younger voters to the polls. We'll see.

Dumbwaiter saw that as of Jan 1, his cable bill increased from $60 to $90 dollars a month.
He shopped around & signed up with Direct TV & the same coverage is only $70.00 a month.
Did Direct TV save money & did it lower his monthly bills?
Dumbwaiter is arguing it didn't because his monthly bills went up $10.00. But they would have gone up $30 if he did not change. So yes, the change saved him money & lowered his bills.
Dumbwaiter is just dumber than sh*t.
By the way, dumbass, the costs of the ACA go up as does the revenue generation. The ACA does not add to the deficit or the debt.
ObamaKKKare will run an enormous deficit and the middle class voters will punish the DemoKKKrats in November 2014....

Ive just always wondered how you guys got the idea that the Tea Party is the official interpreters of it instead of the Supreme Court?
Because they arent.
And it belongs to and protects ALL Americans.

Ok. The Constitution isn't radical.

The Constitution was written so the average person could easily read and understand it. The Constitution doesn't need interpretation. It needs only enforcement.

If you disagree, put in your post text from the Constitution you do not understand and you need someone to interpret for you.

Then it should be easy for you to answer this question:
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?
why are you so stupid as to not know there was no cover-up?

how do you know it was al qaeda who did the attack since no one else knows who did it?

its fun to watch you make a fool of your self.

It's easy to sit there & bitch.
Tell us how.
Sounds to me like you're pushing single payer.
The only decree is that everyone be insured or pay a fee.
If ObamaKare is repealed, will health insurance premiums and deductibles go back to what they were before ObamaKare raised the cost?

Hey Duh A Vey-
Imagine if they put the same PITCHFORK effort into revising and redoing, actually offering some AFFORDABLE health care for everyone (rather than Robbin'hoodieTicing from others)?
Why people might actually HAVE some viable, realistically AFFORDABLE healthcare CHOICES by now- rather than marxist economy debilitating decrees.
ObamaKKKare is about wealth redistribution and screwing the middle class....not about medical care.....

Marriage is a legal contract inthe eyes of the State.

How would that contract differ for same sex marriage?

You think the State has the right to sanction "joining"? Where is that the Constitution?

Really? You are this uninformed???
Someone making $20K a year would get significant help buying insurance in the exchanges.
Typically, if you are single making $20k, the maximum you have to pay is 5.11% of your income.$85.00 a month.
If it were a couple with 20K, their coverage would be free thru medicaid unless they lived in a Red State where they decided to f*ck their constituents rather than appear to support the ACA.
My God, at least try to learn about the exchanges & he ACA before you continue to embarrass yourself.
So, just what are we subsidizing?
What kind of a person makes just 20k a year? Illegal aliens digging ditches make more than that. Why don't they qualify for a real job?

Yes, like Florida where we probably have a million people in that situation. We can only hope that Rick Scott gets voted out; however he did change his mind about the expansion but the devil republicans in the legislature blocked it.
If Charlie Crist campaigns on accepting the Medicaid expansion, I have no doubt that he'll win. It makes no sense that the working poor cannot get insurance.
Medicaid is welfare, not insurance.....

The President of Libya arrested 50 Al Qaeda and interrogated them, and discovered Al Qaeda planned the attack immediately before Hillary Clinton started reducing Stevens' security and cancelling his security contracts.
Or, you can watch the CNN interview with Ahmed Abu Khattala, whom the entire US government has not been able to find. Perhaps the US government never disguised themselves as any of the many western news networks, and Ahmed Abu Khattala would come out of the woodwork to tell you all about the Al Qaeda terrorist attack on the US in Benghazi.

Now, back to the question you run away from:

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?
