Our Judicial System
A pious publication ban on the bail hearing was imposed,
Then another on a preliminary hearing went unopposed,
Details of pre jury trial motions banned from publication,
It means secrets of the system and a lot of frustration.
Names of youthful murderers canít be made public or known,
As part of that public we should be subdued and show no scorn,
Search warrant information is completely and quietly sealed,
The names of victims or witnesses may also be concealed.
Soft-on-crime judge can let illegal terrorist criminals walk,
On a peace bond or empty the courtroom if you even talk,
And your camera is never allowed in during a trial,
You cannot see the video admission of guilt or read the file.
This combination of soft-on-crime judges and criminals is sad,
Appointees giving peace bonds to terrorist refugees is mad,
But they can ban publicity of this too or that or all names,
So few go to jail in these tight politically correct games.
