Death row should be renamed “appeal row.”
The U.S. justice system is a mess. People can keep appealing decision. People can appeal and appeal and appeal. This is not a legal system at all. If a judge makes a decision, why in America can the decision be appealed time after time and again. People on death row are still appealing decisions. This makes zero sense to me. This is costly for taxpayers, as most people use a public defender.
Isn’t a decision by a judge a decision?
I thought a decision was a decision and is a decision!
What does the U.S. legal system think a decision means? Do they have a different meaning than what is in Webster’s Dictionary?
Background: Judge decided in my favor in a domestic relations dispute. However, an appeal has been filed. So, the issue goes on and on.
How is this a legal system, if a decision can be appealed for so many years? In America a decision can be appealed so many times, it makes the country broke, due to appealing of a judge and juries decision.
Why is the American legal system allowing so many appeals, when the decision has already been made?
Judges and juries have to make the decision. The decision needs to be upheld, unless there is brand new evidence to review. In my case, there is none. The appeal was filed with no new evidence. So, this wastes my time and money, when the judge already decided in my favor!
The American legal system is a “we shall take your taxes” system. The more appeals, the more public defenders, and more taxes paid to the government. The attorney also makes a ton of money from appeals.
My opinion, any decision by a judge or jury should be upheld, with no appeal, unless there is brand new evidence to the case.
Decision = Decision
