You Don't Say

Here's a strong contender for the 2007 "No Shit, Sherlock" Quote of the Year honors.

"The reality of life and of restraining orders is that if a person is intent on harassing someone, just because a judge has ordered them to stay away, doesn't mean they're going to do that," said former prosecutor David E. Frank, a reporter for Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly.


Did they teach you that in law school?

Also from the same article:

"It's bad," said Rieves, 46, who has been taking out restraining orders against Mathis, the father of her 15-year-old daughter, since 1993. "I just wish (the courts) would try to do more for the victims and stop being so lenient with the offenders."

Sheesh, lady, what are you? A republican or something? That qualifies as hate speech in Massachusetts. You better watch yourself.

Where's your sense of compassionate progressivism?

Everyone deserves a 87th chance!
