I don't really know very many people there and I don't feel like hearing what people think that don't even know me right now. I'm trying to do things just to keep my mind off of this situation for awhile.

Your plants aren't bothering anyone! oh, and by the way, tell me if you need to find your herps new homes, I can lend a helping hand. They will be right at home in the Reptile Room adjacent to my bedroom.

    Mind boggling. Especially when you think about how difficult it is and how long it takes to get a drug dealer into jail or force a landlord to turn on the heat or to force a company to follow environmental regulations.

    I'd make sure the newspapers and political opponents of the prosecutor's office know all about the situation. Yes, the outcome is bad for you, but I'm glad you live in such a safe & happy place where nothing else is happening and a case like this can go straight to court and get immediate resolution.

    The lesson learned here is: (Ozzy, this isn't directed at you... it's just my rant on how much the legal system disgusts me).

    The law is not the friend of naive, law-abiding citizens who get caught in a bogus or chickens**t charge. It will chew you up and spit you out. Hardened criminals, however, can work the system with ease. This is why it is so important to get a lawyer, even if you think you have an airtight defense.

    Prosecutors are almost all scumbags. They care nothing about justice, or what is logical and reasonable. They just want to win their case. Prosecutorial misconduct is far from a rarity; it is the norm.

    Judges cannot be assumed to be reasonable, logical, or fair, or even intelligent. In their courtroom, they are God, and if you don't grovel sufficiently, things will go badly for you.

    Judges and lawyers are overwhelmingly scientifically illiterate. Despite the law degree, an astonishing number of them don't grasp the concept of evidence in an epistemologic sense, and their deductive logic and critical thinking skills are no better than the average poputation, which is to say, appalling. To a large degree, they do it to themselves, since they don't care if they win a case on the weight of evidence, or on deliberate errors of logic.

    This is horribly, horribly wrong.
    First, they are using a kingsnake to loosely link it to a rule that applies to pythons.
    And then they say your plants are a threat to other people's pets?[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] If somebodies mouse or treefrog escapes, the chance of it getting killed by a plant before a cat or something else gets it, is small compared to me winning the lottery!!
    This judge is incompetant!

    HOLY ****ING ****! I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY FOUND YOU GUILTY OUT OF POSSESSING THE NON DANGEROUS PLANTS!

    Post her e-mail address here, we can all send e-mails to her telling her that we all personally grow these "dangerous" plants, and personally vouch that they post almost no threat to anything larger than a slug.
