If You Can Handle This Foolishness, You Are In Line For A Silliness Medal

    Be forewarned, this one is going to be confusing. Read slowly. Actually, if you figure it out, send me a message and explain it to me.

    I recently saw a newspaper article about a trial for murder. At this point you are saying to yourself, “Self, so what? Why are you bothering me with everyday news? There are lots of murder trials going on all the time.”

    The “what” is that this is the second trial for murder by the same murderer. Does that sound like Double Jeopardy to you? Actually it is Second Jeopardy because this was the second trial of this bad person but this time it is for the killing of a second person first.

    This dastardly person is already serving a Life Sentence for killing someone in 2003. The second dead person is actually the first dead person because this guy made his first dead person dead in 2002.

    It is certainly a fact that this guy is already serving a Life Sentence and this is why murder trial is so confusing …

  • Are we afraid that a Life Sentence does not mean a Life Sentence and our murderer is going to be released before his life has run its course?
  • The above bullet point is of genuine concern because others serving Life Sentences have been released before they have been done living their lives.
  • In researching my facts for this Blog Posting, I read about a convicted murderer serving a Life Sentence, who had been in solitary confinement for six years, who was now being considered for parole on the basis of his “good behavior”.
  • Has “good behavior” been redefined as, “He did not kill anyone while he was in solitary confinement for six years.”

    Here is the It Would Make More Sense To Me part of this posting…

  • We ought to save our tax payer dollars until such time as this awful person has been given parole from his Life sentence, has been given his new cheap suit, has been given his $12 spending money and is on his way out the jailhouse door.
  • It is at that point he should be met on the other side of the door by officers of the law who will arrest him, read him his rights and inform him that he is now going to be put on trial for killing a different person.
  • Why waste the money to try a person for another crime unless and until he has been released from serving his Life Sentence for the crime for which he has already been convicted?
  • Look at the bright side. Think of all the court costs we would save if he dies before he has finished serving his Life Sentence.

    There really ought to be a law against a person who has been given a Life Sentence from even being allowed to die before he has served out his Life Sentence.

    Would I kid u?
