A lawyer for the insane

I suppose paranoid - schizophrenics are entitled to their day in court. And, if they have some cash to throw around they can hire a clown who's name I can't even pronounce to represent them in justifying why someone throwing a bag of popcorn or playing their music too loud was a "clear and life-threatening present danger" that required lethal force.

Since our highest court of the land deemed person-hood on corporations the justice system in this country has been on a downward spiral that soon will look very much like a skit out of SNL.

People dressed in box like suits with corporate logos emblazoned on them will line up at polling stations. People will suit up in Kevlar and pack an arsenal to go to the movies or the local mall.

Any sign of a threat; a dirty look, someone reaching for something out of their pocket or purse will evoke knee jerk responses; guns drawn, people ducking for cover anticipating the hail storm of lead to come flying their way.

Welcome to the 21st century where, at this rate, might be the last one in this civilizations life cycle. Unlike previous extinctions this one is self-imposed; a Jim Jones on steroids event that will surely top the reality TV charts.

But hey, not to worry. Just call Ken C!
