Back Again

Fear not... although posting was severly interupted by a combination of a workplace block on accessing blogsites, the demands of work (an uncanny confluence of several jury trials, out-of-town prosecutions, and just plain caseload) and the holiday season... I have returned!

Among the issues near and dear that I shall post on presently are the disastrous decision in New Jersey to abolish the death penalty, giving much holiday joy to the various deviant murderers awaiting their just desserts on Jersey's sadly slow death row, the Supremes taking on the supposed cruel and unusual nature of lethal injection, thoughts on waterboarding (is it really torture?), and of course, real true stories of life on the front line of criminal prosecution.

Stay tuned.
