A Lesson In Foreceful Cooperation

Let me start by saying that I have faith in the judicial system.

 

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, allow me to take a moment to openly bitch about the way they treat victims.  I got subpoenaed on Saturday to testify against the 2 ass holes who broke into my house.  Court date is in 2 weeks, and it states rather largely and very clearly that a warrant will be issued for my arrest if I don’t show.  Annoying, but free day off of work. I get it.  I’m not going to fight.

 

So I call the attorney this morning to ask what I’m going to have to do when I’m there and voice my concerns over these documented gang members knowing who I am when I testify against them.  You know what I’m told?  I’m told that I don’t have a choice and I do have to show up, or I will be arrested but I’m allowed to “voice my concerns.”  So then I ask, “what does voicing my concerns get me if I clearly don’t have a choice?”  And then I’m given a lecture about cooperating while I slam my head against the wall for 30 minutes.

 

They gave me many options:  I testify and let the documented gang members know who I am and what I look like, or I get arrested for not cooperating.  This is what my tax dollars are buying me.
