The Monroe County court systems are flawed

They make up, change, bend or circumvent the rules based on WHO you are, WHAT they hope to achieve or to make it look good.

Jury's too!!! Flawed
Keep Da Change

Can't blame the courts or the laws. The blame rest solely on the jury's.

There is a fine line between an accident and recklessness.
To me, I think the big difference is wanton disregard for doing the right thing.

Our culture seems to focus on wanting to live the "Mountain Dew" extreme lifestyle, coupled with living up to the rude Jersey Shore behavior & our culture of un-accountability ... we no longer know the difference between right and wrong.
We’re just focused on who's gonna pay to clean up the mess.

If you are going to complain about inconsistency in the courts ... let’s starting fixing the problem by hauling these deep pocketed fat cats in Big Pharma who recklessly peddle their drugs on the masses operating heavy machinery!
No one’s going after Big Pharma like they do the bars that serve the drunks in a DUI case.

You're a pathetic loser. No one is talking about race here. But of course, as usual, you attempt to race bait. Let's see if Biracial One comes to your defense or maybe CC or both. You are pathetic.

The verdicts in this case were an absolute disgrace.

Equally disgusting was the foreman of the Scerbo jury in today's D&C trying to justify their verdict and saying he was "happy" with it.

There is no question that once he gets out of jail, Scerbo will continue to be a menace to society (look at his criminal history); in fact, he'll probably be lucky to serve 5 years due to "good behavior." Then he'll keep repeating this type of behavior until someone has the sense to put him away for good.

The fact that Merkel will probably serve zero jail time is also disturbing. She is just as guilty as he is. This is why society is going to hell - juries absolving douchebags like Merkel of any responsibility even though she was drunk, was on drugs, and had no driver's license at the time of the murder (screw the word "accident" - this was murder pure and simple). She was utterly unremorseful right after the accident and even told people to "F*** off" on her Facebook page days after the accident.

Let's be honest, we all know these two will be in trouble for the rest of their lives. They will re-offend and others will have to clean up their mess because these two stains on society are lazy, incompetent douchebags who have no respect for anyone else on this planet.

I feel so, so sorry for the Boyum family and friends. They were failed by these two incompetent, lazy juries.

I agree with 99% of what you have said. However, the way the law is written, I believe they had no choice but to not convict Merkel of vehicular manslaughter. She was culpable, yes, but the law isn't written that way. They are both scum. I hope when their time is up here on earth that they both rot in hell where they belong. Nothing but losers.

Yeah, I know what you're saying. It's just so frustrating though. I wish the law was different. I think it's ridiculous how lenient some of the laws are.

How is my comment inappropriate? Crotchety complains ENDLESSLY about white cops, white teachers, white lawyers, white judges...read her comment. I merely pointed out the FACT that the reason why there are soooo many white teachers, white lawyers, white judges...is because they spent the time and effort to gain an EDUCATION! So you tell me, reDICulous...why do you believe my comment is inappropriate and ignorant? It is neither one of those. It is dead on correct. Period.

You;ve loss me, but I can tell you if it was a black jury and a black judge these crazy white druggie drunk driving murderers would have been held accountable.
Then after you go to college to be a teacher, go back to college again and be a lawyer, okay, Crotchety? I'd have no problem with that. None at all.

BWAHAHAHAHAHHAAAA!!! You "demand" it huh? OR WHAT? What are you going to do? HUH? You say NOTHING to Crotchety about all the threads with "white this..." "white that"...You come on here and SAY you are white. Which is absolute bullcrap. You threaten me ENDLESSLY and expect people to respect anything you say (which isn't much except for threats). Keep up the good work. You're giving Crotchety a run for her money as arsewipe of the week on here. ;)

But something like this white drunk drivers killing other whites, we are not to mention that duh its all whites, whats going on in the white culture??
The number of times the blacks are in the news for shootings, stabbings,etc... are 1000 times greater than the number of accidents like this.
I'm not saying they dont ever happen, just not nearly as often as you read about sombody black getting shot or stabbed, usually by another of their own race!!! There was a black lady that committed a hit & run in Rochester within the past year. She was high on somthing & texting.

I see there is a subculture issue going on, there is white trash that get drunk and drive and smoke bath salts and meth and molest their own children, then there is a ghetto black culture that acts badly too.
There are law abiding God fearing normal white and black people, too. We all need to stop condoning the bad apples, and figure out how to break the cycle of poverty and immorality that is dragging our city and country down.

Just like whites are knew to stick their penises in children, and the sentences for this is hardly nothing. How many local whites have we seen that have abused child only to be free within months.
A black guy arrested for loitering on a corner would probable do more time than a white guy that sexually abused a young child.
I agree with you 100%! This has been proven and the system is really screwed up!
