Ok, BCSBers, out of a fantistic stroke of luck I met our AG Michael de Jong today. He gave speech during the lunch break of a seminar and the second he finished I made my way over to him. I introduced myself and started to talk to him about Orion Hutchison...I have a feeling he knew what I was going to say.
Long story short - the legal system - the judiciary and everyone involved in that process - depends on the trust and legitimacy placed in them by the people. There is a growing disconnect between the legal system and the general populace - this is a very bad thing indeed and cause for concern.
He gave me his card and asked me to contact him with more ideas and suggestions (I had some but will keep them to myself so I won't taint your creativity) on how to address this problem.
This is where you folks come in. Specifically relating to Orion Hutchison's case - tell me what would give you satisfaction. What actions, and by whom, would give you confidence that justice was done, or if not justice then at least the belief that our legal system was applied fairly.
I'll wait until this thread grinds to a halt and then I'll incorporate some of the ideas into my letter to him.
