TECHNOLOGY IN THE COURTROOM
There is a difference in being polite or sensitive to the perceptions of others and being downright stupid. For many in today’s society, the second option is the one chosen. For example, the Atlanta TV reporter forced to resign because she quoted a Twitter user in requesting his information for a story. When she used the same phrase he did, suddenly she was a racist! How’s this for convoluted logic? You can’t shoot a bad guy about to harm you because you rob him of his opportunity for a fair trial! That’s just our first hour!
One retired teacher sounded off over the weekend on reading selections for kids in schools and why parents should be kept out of the process. He was far, far off base. Have we decided on criteria for hiring a County Manager? And what is it that Melbourne International Airport (you will not hear the O word here) has to brag about? It’s not airline traffic, that’s for sure!
Just in time for our visit with Judge A. B. Majeed in hour 3, we have a question asked of John Roberts with a surprising answer- is predictive technology appropriate for use in sentencing. IT’s an interesting idea and, since the muzzle is off our judicial friend, we’ll ask that and much more.
