| This is why I never want to go to Texas. I know it's not right to stereotype a certain state for their behavior but the laws there are just way different. If any state was ever to succeed, I'd easily see Texas as one of the most likely to truely attempt it. |
Everything is bigger in Texas.... including the stupidity.
Texas is possibly the best state in the entire union. If you had actually been there you would see that. Great economy+no state income tax+very low cost of living=epic in my book. The people there also decent as well. They are just conservative. And that doesn't make them at all stupid just because they aren't socialist pussies.
From a person whose been there and lived there I disagree. It is cheap I mean the houses are big and cheap but Texas isn't all that The people are not all that decent, at least in Southern Texas, and having been to other states it's kind of bland.
I really only care about economics when I evaluate state and put a little bit of thought into social environment but not much. So that's just my point of view I guess. But everyone I know from Texas and everyone I have met there are pretty decent people so i just go off that. I've only visited though and never lived there.
Economics is important, but it's not the first thing on my checklist, my job is universal. Plus, this is a topic about the government possibly overstepping their boundries, not about finances. I don't have a problem with the people in the state, it's more about the government.

First of all, I'm not sure if that is a remark directed towards me personally considering that you have tried labeling me as that in the past, but don't start if it is. This isn't a left verses right argument.
| he digs up some extreme case of a hick District Attorney's stupidity and you deem the whole state a lost |
But as a state, Texas has the highest rate of convicted people who have been executed that later have been basically found innocent. Although no judge bothers to hear evidence once the executions have been "finalized". Don't get me wrong, it's NOT the people. No matter what state you go to there are nice people, and jerks, I can accept that. That's not my concern, it's simply about the government. I come from a state that also had a lot of problems with their death penalty, maybe even the most problems, but luckily a moratorium was put in place until it was finally abolished. But let's get back on topic....
I didn't see anything mentioned about bail. Was he not offered it due to it being labelled a terrorist threat or something?
