Fuck this. Fuck that judge.

The start of the story of Cece McDonald is here, including the judge's awful decisions about which evidence to include in a murder trial. May be triggering. She does have people rallying in support, but they can't change the minds of the people on the case.

I didn't even know you could exclude evidence like the defendant's wounds from the actual prior attack, or the "victim's" history of assault and Nazi tattoo, from a murder trial. Doesn't that make it not a fair trial?

This is why so many people have no reason to trust the "justice system". Someone mentioned the comparison to the Trayvon Martin case, where all the circumstances and evidence are so different. Except, it seems the identities of the people involved are the only variables that matter.
