Balder Regional Message Board
Yeah, it's a lousy system to have trials focus more on comparing the skill of the lawyers than on getting at the truth. I'm not sure what could fix it, though, without being even more vulnerable to corruption. We'd need a group of entirely neutral, trustworthy experts to assess evidence that would be called in by the judge, instead of one attorney or the other. Maybe disbar lawyers who get caught intentionally deceiving the jury. Of course, ideally the prosecutor would be more concerned with getting the right guy than just getting a conviction. But good luck getting any laws to encourage that through when trying to keep innocent people out of jail is considered 'soft on crime'. And the defender's job ought to be making sure that the legal rights of the accused are protected and giving them advice on the legal complexities of the situation, not doing anything possible to get them off, but expensive defense attorneys would have a hard time charging as much if that was all they did.
In Teh Supremez0r, we've got mind readers to make sure nobody gets away with lying under oath. Makes things a lot simpler, as long as you don't want any right to privacy in your own head.
As far as "legally blind", it may sound weird but it is an important distinction. Since I can still see, I'm not fully blind, but my vision is so poor compared to a normal person that it affects my ability to work. It crosses a "legal threshold" for what counts as blindness.
I think that "Legal Blindness" thresholds may vary between jurisdictions.
Nope. Legal blindness is part of the Federal SSA guidelines! (Insert "The More You Know" jingle here)
Unless you mean on a country-by-country basis, in which case you're probably right. And since Fake is from the UK, his rules might be different.
Legal blindness is the same in UK and US
I don't know how I got here, but thank you for your time. I think there's been a mistake.
