Don’t let the door hit you in the behind, Mr. Majors.

Swell. Another “trial and conviction by media” in the Daily Sentinel.
Anybody besides me ever notice how in cases like the Jason Kemp and Lewis Pollard shootings, where police wrong doing appears to be a distinct possibility, the affidavits are somehow always magically “sealed” and the public is strategically kept in the dark, while in cases like this one and the recent Jensen case the affidavits are somehow magically not sealed, and the public is given all kinds of selected juicy details?
What with quotes such as, “Majors admitted he’d asked several girls for pictures of their ‘boobs,’ the affidavit said,” and “‘I drink too much, I’m in trouble,’ Majors wrote in a Facebook message to one girl in mid-November, according to the affidavit,” how can any reasonable person pretend that there is any remotely realistic shred of a presumption of innocence? The short answer: they can’t.
Meanwhile, back at the “Good Old Boy” ranch, when it looks like the shooter of Randy Cook may very likely be as politically well connected as it is possible to be in the Good Old Grand Valley, once again, the public isn’t allowed to know diddley squat.
So, since nobody in his or her right mind wants to let an “alleged” pervert off the hook for soliciting boob shots from underage girls, once again we, the local yokels — who the elites appear supremely confident are far too stupid to understand what’s going on — will be treated by the opinion “media” to the spectacle of yet another conviction by “karma” and popular demand instead of by due process of law. Kind of like the “bread and circuses” disseminated to please the mindless crowd in the Fall-of-the-Roman-Empire days, wouldn’t you say.
Idn’t dat just precious?
It’s not for nothing that it has so often been said that people tend to get the kind of government they deserve.

John—good soliloquy, but Majors resigned of his own accord.
