I wrote my title as such because we happened to watch the movie A LAW ABIDING CITIZEN last night, starring Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx and it just got me thinking... Movie was MUCH better than I thought it would be BTW. Anyway, it got me thinking about how lousy our "justice" system is at times. Yeah, I know, better that 12 guilty people go free than 1 innocent and all that crap...blah, blah, blah... But in a case like this one or the OJ trial we need to use just a hair of common sense. Of course I truly believe that 90% of the world lacks common sense so the point is moot, I guess.
Anyway, in the movie Gerard's character goes on a rampage after the "justice" system frees one of his family's murderers on a "technicality"...such as with Casey's, y'know, lack of concrete evidence and all.
Movie felt good. Just, y'know, got me thinking...
Um, NO, I would NEVER suggest anyone do what Gerard's character did. But everyone down in the Orlando area really should watch this movie.
Because it's a good movie is all... Far better than we thought it would be.
