The general rule is that if you are innocent, get tried by a judge who will rule based on the facts. If you are guilty then go with a jury trial because you should never underestimate the ignorance of the American public.
As for Hardy, he was guilty and got what he deserved. Hopefully this will be a wake up call. I agree with those who say he is gone. Assault on a female is a big problem for JR.
Right on but in this case I don't think a jury trial outcome will be any different and he's out there swinging in the wind that much longer. Not guilty from jury trial is not going to change the perception and another guilty verdict hammer fugs the kraken.
If you are over 30 you probably have another team or two that you like. It's not like you kick the team you have followed your entire life to the curb the day the Panthers arrived. I gravitated to the Panthers from Washington and Danny Boy Snyder made it pretty painless. Thankfully my hate for Dallas was developed many years ago.
Yeah in the case of domestic violence cases everytime I have ever seen the police come the guy was arrested. Doesn't matter who was at fault. They will 9 times out of 10 take the guy to jail for the night.
Every single time. Even if there is no evidence they will arrest on the female's word. The police have no choice because of the way the law is now written/interpreted. I understand why but everything in this country is overkill.
