Alleged wealthy man assigned a Public Defender. Why would the Court go to such “expense”?
Public Defenders have a 94% LOSS rate. That’s right. 6% of the time, as a national average, the defendant wins.
So, if this guy is really a target, then he’ll be assigned a PD for a more certain conviction.
The standard of journalistic sophistication, abstract thought and grammar is between the 7th and the 9th grade. News papers, magazines and TV and other media are designed to comport with the FOG index, or more technically precise, the “Gunning-Fog Index”.
This index is billed as a “readability standard” whereby the intent is to be understood and readable by the largest number of people.
The reality is that no event or idea can be promulgated in any efficient, mass scale beyond the range of the ever-dropping standard of roughly the 8th grade.
There’s more to know on the subject of “discernment” But knowing this data point is a start.
“Inasmuch as every government is an artificial person, an abstraction, and a creature of the mind only, a government can interface only with other artificial persons. The imaginary, having neither actuality nor substance, is foreclosed from creating and attaining parity with the tangible. The legal manifestation of this is that no government, as well as any [government] law, agency, aspect, court, etc. can concern itself with anything other than corporate, artificial persons and the contracts between them.” [PENHALLOW v. DOANE’S ADMINISTRATORS ]

PERSON, n. per’sn. [L. persona; said to be compounded of per, through or by, and sonus, sound; a Latin word signifying primarily a mask used by actors on the state.]
“state” probably should be “stage” but I love the Freudian Slip ;)
Clearfield Trust Co. v. United States 318 U.S. 363-371 1942:
“Governments descend to the level of a mere private corporation, and take on the characteristics of a mere private citizen . . . where private corporate commercial paper and securities is concerned.
You can’t expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you!
Ei nihil turpe, cui nihil satis
“A man’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind.”
