    Re: Is Wille Getting the Shaft?

    Willie is a multi-decade pot smoker... everyone knows it in law enforcement. He's sort of getting the shaft because for multi-decades he's been getting away with it because he's a well known singer/songwriter. He's sorta not getting the shaft because he's gotten away with it for so long... he finally got a judge who's sick of the law not pertaining to specific segments of our population because of their fame. Willie's had it coming for a long time... it was bound to happen. A year off in a cushy celebrity jail, playing harmonica for the other white collar inmates sounds like it would do Willie a lot of good.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    OK...DISAGREEING with marijuana laws and all that...I DO see the judges point. Willie Nelson is associated with two things...country music and pot. He has been busted so many times he is like Otis from the Andy Griffith show...he could just walk into the jail and sleep off his buzz...every night. And no 'regular' citizen is going to repeatedly have things overlooked with a wink and a nod.

    I've never heard of a judge throwing out a plea bargain between a defendant and a DA. The deal was made. If I was the DA, and some punk judge pulled that **** on me, I'd drop all the charges and let Willie go free. Bear in mind, it could be any defendant, not just a famous one.

    Leave poor Willie alone! He's never hurt a flea.

    Then Willie should plead not guilty, demand a trial by jury, and stretch the case out for 3 or 4 years. The pot was found during a search of the bus. Willie isn't the only person that rides on that bus. Make the DA prove that the weed belonged to Willie.

    I agree with you on that point but I also feel this guy doesnt give a crap regarding drug law either. So for him thinking the law doesnt pertain to him, I say toss his ass in the pokey!

    But didn't Willie already admit to it seeing how Willie agreed to a plea bargain?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    He could tell them that he was high when he made that plea bargain?

    Admitting to being under the influence of a substance he is accused of possessing to try to escape a possession charge?
