The Verdict is in, but Court hasn’t even started…

The scene: Missoula (Mont.) County District Court.
The charge: Criminal Distribution Of Dangerous Drugs — a Felony.

The drug: 1/16th of an ounce of marijuana police found in Touray Cornell’s house. When potential jurors heard what the case was about, they staged a “revolt”, District Judge Dusty Deschamps said. Juror after juror being considered for the case said they would refuse to convict anyone over such a small amount of pot. Deschamps polled the remaining 27 juror prospects, and 22 of them said they would not issue a guilty verdict in the case, saying that even holding a trial for such a “crime” was a waste of taxpayer money. “A mutiny,” declared Deputy County Attorney Andrew Paul.

Cornell agreed to a plea bargain in exchange for a year in prison, to be served concurrently to a year’s sentence on a theft charge.

A THOUGHT: A citizen revolt on this  issue isn’t a surprise. That it happened in a courtroom is.

Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
