Irwin Schiff Trial update by Mark Yannone

2 Old Comments:

Under normal circumstances this idea would be ridiculous. However Irwin is on trial for his life. So, due to the fact Irwin put the judge and prosecution team on notice that if the judge gave the jury a false jury instruction about the law them they would be entering into a illegal conspiracy he should now file criminal charges against them. No, neither the Sheriff or FBI or Federal Marshals will act but then, while the jury is in attendance Irwin should attempt to make a citizens arrest.
Of course this will just get Irwin more sanctioned days in jail but if it sends the message to the jury that this is a travesty of justice isn’t it worth it?

This recording stops at 35:15; I can't get it to go any further.

In support of some of what Irwin said in this session, here is a truly excellent quote:

"Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one's self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all."
