While it took half the time of that other trial I was on(over 6 ½ years ago),it did have its complexities:While the 12 of us agreed that the particular act happened(aggravated assault/battery),it was also obvious that the testimonies of the main witnesses had major inconsistencies and even self-contradictions.While the truth may never be known,the eventually acquitted defendant(whose "victim" may have been armed)turned out to be his own best defense.As for that other case I was on(a August 2002 case of a spousal abuse incident that occurred some 2 years earlier and involved a "sanity" plea),that case actually produced an unlikely smoking gun
.I'm just glad I never even considered a career in law.BTW,I brought several manga volumes with me,though I only managed to read a little bit of Fairy Tail
Turns out that Google Street View
also works for larger Japanese cities...
While there's a few hours left in today's date stateside,happy 37th birthday to Junko Takeuchi.Barring some fluke in the near or far future,Futari wa Purikyua Splash Star
(including the associated Purikyua All Stars DX movie
may be the only time ever where she and Kappei-sama are ever together in an anime(or any voice project,for that matter).I wonder,would either Gon
or Naruto cry "miminga"
if they met Inuyasha
)(as indicted by the image below)?
