Response to Zorro (Original post)

14. 1st Amendment

 

The idea of a judge ordering an accused to be silent and not speak out to tell their side of the story makes this civil libertarian nauseous.

If freedom of speech doesn't include the freedom to shout "I'm innocent!" then it doesn't seem to count for much.
