Open thread: Bring back my North Carolina


Jane decided to plead guilty

Her assessment (in my words):

The court system is a cluster fuck, with insufficient funding at every level.

The judges and the prosecutors are chummy best friends, not just with Moral Monday cases, but in general. The entire system is stacked against black people.

The verdict on Moral Monday charges is a foregone conclusion.

Jury trials could take as long two or three years.


Much to think through before my day in court on Wednesday.


If you're going to MM, please send pictures and let us know how things turn out. We're dealing with veterinarians and a very hurt dachshund today, so we won't be making the trip to Raleigh.
