Ed-vise: Grand Jury

A Cousin and Aunt coming to town GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, kin folk coming to town today! Needless to say I am SUPER excited that they want to come up to see me. Or, they are coming up for Wings and Waves just down the road. Nah. They’re coming to see me!

Free For All Friday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s FRIDAY! OPEN MAT; PIZZA NIGHT!


Our boy T-Rump finally got indicted! FINALLY! Jesus H Christ they been talking about his crimes since FOREVER!

Now, the press has it saying the indictment is about hush money payments he made to Stormy Daniels. Stormy is the woman he hooked up with while his wife was recovering from delivering their child.

So, I thought I’d give a little discussion on how this and other crime type things play out.

The Manhattan DA did the investigating of T-Rump because the DA’s office got word of a crime. So, they investigated. The DA’s and police agencies rooted around, talked to people, gathered information. Then, they put it all together and compared it to what the criminal rules (statutes) say is a crime.

All the evidence they put together, when held up to the criminal statutes led the DA’s office to believe there is a crime. They put together a list of charges and present it to a judge. They also ask the judge to bring together a bunch of average citizens and convene a Grand Jury.

Once a Grand Jury is put in place, then things get really cool. They get to dive deep into stuff. Deeper than what the DA initially thought. They get to look at all the evidence, call the witnesses, even witnesses the DA never called. If you ever get a chance to serve on a Grand Jury panel, DO IT! It’s way better than regular old jury duty.

Now, the thing about the Grand Jury is that the defendant need not be present. They don’t get to cross examine the evidence nor witnesses. They just get to sit and watch the whole thing play out…if they are present. Reason being is the courts look at the Grand Jury work as a group of people just talking. Seeing if there is a crime or not.

Well, in this case, they, the Grand Jury, found enough evidence for an indictment. THAT is the charging instrument to say “HEY! You committed a crime.”

The indictment gets served on the defendant. Sometimes it is with the police taking them into custody. Sometimes, like here, it will bring T-Rump to court. He will then stand before the judge who will read the indictment to him. Then, the judge will ask “How do you plead to these charges?”

Now, here is a bit of Ed-vise for you all. If you are ever brought before the court and asked that question, reply with either GUILTY, NOT GUILTY, or NO CONTEST. NOTHING ELSE! NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING! GUILTY, NOT GUILTY, or NO CONTEST! It is not the time for your show or puking out your opinions or anything else.

More likely than not, T-Rump will say “NOT GUILTY.” And then the state of New York will have the obligation of proving all elements of the crimes before they can convict.

I think the nation, and the world for that matter, will get a TON of education on the ‘MURICAN criminal justice system in the next several weeks.

I’m just saying

That’s it for today. Be the person a stranger will do CPR on. Check in on each other with a “You Good” and remember the woman that tried to castrate her lover and cut his thigh instead was charged with a…MISS D WEINER! BWAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAA…Missed…now that’s funny right there!
