I hear ya, I wasn't implying that you were for the burglars "doing the right thing" or anything like that. I was simply responding to the article. The article read towards the end, that no action was taken on the two burglars and the chief of police (or whoever) said that we punished the "lesser of the two evils". That's what I don't agree with - they need to punish anyone/everyone who broke the law.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but... let's take a look at a scenario (becuase I honestly don't know)
In a murder trial, if evidence is obtained that PROVES the convicted guilty
it can not
be used in court if it is obtained illegally. Correct?
EDIT: Well, I just talked to my dad (he works in the judicial system here in Georgia) and he tells me that it's all up to the DA and the Judge (at least that's what I got out of it, I find that stuff extremely boring and hard to pay attention to). It can literally vary from courtroom to courtroom on what is decided... sigh, I hate how our system isn't consistent anywhere.
