Justice turned on its head

Hospital discharges Cheney victim

Harry Whittington, the lawyer who was shot by US Vice-President Dick Cheney in a hunting accident, has been discharged from hospital.

He told reporters he bore no ill will and felt "deeply sorry" for the trouble Mr Cheney and his family had faced.

The rest of this article is here: bbc.co.uk

- as said on a BBC TV satire program tonight - "this will be the first ever case of its kind where a lawyer will fail to prosecute"

- but for the victim to apologise to Cheney ..... the mind boggles!

Here, when there is an emergency, we are supposed to pick up a phone and dial 911 for an ambulance. Cheney didn't. I read he waited twenty minutes to have medical people come, and he didn't even go to the hospital with him, and he didn't even file a report with the police... he's the worst kind of coward. He cared more about his reputation than the man's life.

Remember Shokai? His father just passed away. You may want to go over to Water Dissolves Water and wish him well... how are you doing?

Thanks for telling me about Shokai. Much appreciated. I've just posted a note to him.
Oh yes, and I'm doing okay thanks, and you? Love your latest blog picture (although love is probably the wrong word ... :) )

Glad you posted to him. He hasn't responded to or left comments in a while. I hope he's OK.
