A monster in law.
This is the title of a New York Times op-ed by the former U.S. solicitor general, Robert Bauer, who argued in the Supreme Court in favor of a bill that would require prosecutors to charge the accused with a specific crime.
The bill, which was introduced in the U.K. in October, passed the U!
Human Rights Council and is now before the United States Congress.
Bauer argued that the bill would create a monster, one that would not only “drown in the mire of criminal and civil liability” but that would actually create “a monster.”
Bauer wrote, “the monster in the law will have no business in a courtroom.
If the law were to apply to all individuals, the law would make no difference whether the defendant is a police officer or a member of a terrorist organization.
It would be a law for everybody.”
As The New York Post pointed out, Bauer’s argument is at odds with the fact that criminal and Civil rights advocates and civil libertarians, including the American Civil Liberties Union, have long urged the government to treat people fairly.
In the U., we have seen that our criminal justice system does not treat people equally, that it discriminates against African-Americans, Latinos, and other vulnerable groups and that the police are often the worst victims of racial bias.
As we’ve seen in the past, it’s a monster in our law system, a monster that can’t be ignored.
In an op- ed published by the Washington Post in January, Bauer argued, “No one should be charged with a crime unless they commit the offense and are found guilty.
If that’s what the law is saying, then I don’t think that it should be used to try a defendant who does not commit the crime.
That would be to allow a monster to thrive.”
In a recent opinion piece for the Washington Times, Bauer pointed out that many of the nation’s most serious criminal cases are resolved in the “murder of a single suspect.”
In fact, in 2015, a study by the Center for American Progress found that over 90 percent of the defendants charged with murder in the United Kingdom were charged with other offenses, including drug possession.
This year alone, the Department of Justice has brought over 600 cases against individuals for offenses including drug trafficking, sexual assault, robbery, burglary, assault, assault with a deadly weapon, and murder.
As Bauer writes, “If the bill passes, it will be a step in the right direction in improving the justice system.”
As it stands now, if you or someone you know is facing a charge of murder or sexual assault in the future, you are unlikely to be exonerated, according to Bauer.
He wrote, “[I]f we allow the government’s monstrous monster to grow unchecked, it is possible that the government will be able to do its worst in its war against us.”
