• We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :) Please help by posting all issues here.
  • The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Choice might depend on SD sentencing laws. Does a jury or the judge impose/recommend sentence following a jury guilty verdict? Are the jury recommendations/impositions binding on the judge? Jurors may be overly harsh or lenient in finding guilt if they think sentencing may be too harsh/lenient. Once the case goes to the jury, all control is lost.

I would think with the legal system in Kenosha obviously on a witch hunt for Rittenhouse , while armed felons who attacked him walk free, the more control taken away from that legal system the better
