This is a well crafted anthem to our judicial system in cases such as this. The structure is overly rigid and does need serious change but, if the justices and professionals who staff it are honest and ethical, the right will prevail.

Admittedly it does not in almost all cases of normal jurisprudence involving the poor and those still determined to be a minority. The delivery of justice in the normal world is the exception. That is a structural failure exacerbated by a culture that presupposes racism and white supremacy.

The high level judicial system that may, well, be able to do in a low level, though wealthy, criminal with serious mental sociopathy, who bought his way into the presidency with promises to a foreign power after two years of disastrous rule is positive but hardly warrants faith in the system.

And it is not sclerotic but, never the less, diseased. Rigidity can be mistaken for structure and that is a virtue in a legal system that is based in precedent and common law. Diseased is both destructive and dangerous as the system become deranged.
