Look if you get pulled over and ticketed for a bull**** violation and you know and truly believe it is a bull**** violation, where do you win that fight? Do you win it on the street with the officer or do you win it in court?

2) Plenty of nations don't use grand juries, and have not collapsed into tyranny. (Unless you have a patently ridiculously low barriers for your definition of "tyranny.")
1) I have no interest whatsoever in your personal business.We cannot always see the ones who are broken by trials for crimes they never committed. I brought a lawsuit and won. But it cost me dearly. It costs the state nothing.
