Is murder not deemed a sufficiently serious crime?


Tue October 21, 2014

Editor: The prosecution discontinues its case against someone charged of murder because witnesses failed to appear in court to testify? So, that’s how it works. You can get away with murder if you can instill enough fear in the witnesses against you to ensure their unwillingness to testify in court. Isn’t there such a thing as “compellability,” wherein witnesses can be subpoenaed and if they fail to appear and give testimony they can be fined or imprisoned? Or is that only enforced in non-third world countries, or is murder not deemed a sufficiently serious crime to warrant such proceedings?

Just Wondering
