A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
This has also been addressed:This time, the prosecutor said, “The People are not ready. We are requesting one week.” The next court date set by the judge—March 9th—was not one week away but six. As it happened, Browder didn’t go to trial anytime that year. An index card in the court file explains:
June 23, 2011: People not ready, request 1 week.
August 24, 2011: People not ready, request 1 day.
November 4, 2011: People not ready, prosecutor on trial, request 2 weeks.
December 2, 2011: Prosecutor on trial, request January 3rd.
June 29, 2012: People not ready, request one week.
September 28, 2012: People not ready, request two weeks.
November 2, 2012: People not ready, request one week.
December 14, 2012: People not ready, request one week.
You don't know that it was only $300, or that they could afford $300 if that was the amount, and the point was made moot when bail was revoked two months into his 3 years in jail without trial.Considering the COL in NY and the fact these are foster parents running a foster home, $300 is doable for an emergency. But hey, no proof would be good enough for you. You desperately do not want your argument to be shown for what it is, broken.
That's a nice quote, now how does that relate to the case? I've posted evidence of at least 10 delays by the prosecution, that cumulatively delayed the trial well over a year. I've said the law counts 10 "one week" requests as 10 weeks against the 6 months, even if the actual delay is 6 weeks or 8 weeks or 10 weeks. What part of the story indicates the bulk of the delays were due to defense motions? And if the defense did request delays (which you haven't shown), in part because he's got 100s of active cases, how does it show the system works for the poor in any way at all?
In prison, Browder clung to his sanity — barely.
But upon gaining his freedom, he seemed to slip between an effort to regain his life and the darkness that threatened to take over.
He had allies everywhere. An anonymous donor offered to pay for his community college education. He met with Rosie O’Donnell and Jay Z.
...Gonnerman, the journalist who visited with Browder several times during her reporting for the New Yorker, noted that he had recently been spending his time in and out of mental health institutions.
After a visit with Browder in the psych ward at St. Barnabas Hospital in January, Gonnerman described him as “gaunt, restless and deeply paranoid.” She added, "He had recently thrown out his brand-new television, he explained, “because it was watching me.”
At a gathering in the family home Saturday, the family struggled to understand what went wrong, according to Gonnerman. Was it the anti-psychotic medication that exacerbated his suicidal ideation? Or had he stopped taking the drugs? Kalief Browder’s suicide and the high cost of violence and delay at Rikers - The Washington Post
