Make of it what you will, but in this case the six men on the Supreme Court ruled that the Fifth Amendment means nothing if you can make up a clever excuse to ignore it, while the three women on the court disagreed.

Never, never expect "justice" from a white man's "court" -- particularly a "court" he labels with the superlative "supreme".

    A justice system in which the state makes the laws, enforces them, prosecutes them, hires the prosecutors, licenses the defense attorneys, pays the judges, builds the jails (and contracts them out to private entities), pays the wardens and the guards and eventually the parole officers ... is not a unbiased system.
