Justice system? Or "Stupidity system?

Zimmerman was taken into custody earlier Wednesday on second-degree murder charges in the teen's death. 

Corey said the decision to bring charges was based on the facts and the law, declaring: "We do not prosecute by public pressure or by petition." 

When asked by Local 6 reporter Tony Pipitone what specific evidence was uncovered to bring the charges against Zimmerman, 

Corey said she wouldn't discuss details about the case. "That will be in court, detailed evidence -- that's why we try cases in court," Corey said. "That would be commenting on the facts of the case, and we are not going to do that at this time." More here:

I assume, if she answered, she'd try to tell the truth ... the facts as she believes them to be. Why can't she "comment on the facts of the case?"  Ever wonder why?

What kind of "justice system" do we have when the litigants can't "comment on the facts of the case?"  What do they stand to gain (or lose.)  More importantly, WHY do they stand to gain or lose just because they tell the truth?  Why would the truth hurt anyone?

I think our "justice system" is in need of a major overhaul.

If he is not guilty he might be in trouble cause the jury or the court may find him guilty just out of fear.

"We do not prosecute by public pressure or by petition."

That's Libspeak for "even though we never pressed charges and he wasn't arrested, once the public at large got wind of the story (although none of the facts), we decided to go ahead and prosecute more than FORTY DAYS AFTER the incident due to public pressure and by petition".

It seems their superior abilities to understand complexity have struck once again.

Of course "superior abilities to understand complexity" is merely Libspeak for "superior abilities to disregard, logic, facts, and common sense and to replace them with excessively complicated and convoluted statements and arguments only intended to confuse and bore anyone with whom they have already decided to disagree".
