Double jepordy has loopholes.
I am not going to comment on the case or nature of the charge that lead me to make this post.
I am strictly going to defend the concept of double jeopardy and how it gets trampled on and how LONG TERM if we do not defend it, it hurts all of us.
The idea and concept behind it is rock solid. It is the idea that government cannot forever follow you around and keep re charging you for the same crime they failed to convict you on, has loopholes.
The loophole is basically an excuse to recharge the accused with the same crime, while claiming it is not the same crime. As much as I value our oversight in government, which can correct a mistake, this loophole is one of the scariest aspects of our current mindset.
Double jeopardy as far as what inspired me to make this post, is causing me to come to the conclusion that humans when they don't get what they want, INSIDE AND OUTSIDE law, will make excuses to get a do over.
There is a good reason for double jeopardy, and that is not just there for the accused, and without mentioning the case that led me to post this, I see that long term counter to government abuse of power, being shit upon. Laws certainly need some sort of judicial flux, but we cannot nor should we as a collective society, become a vigilante society long term.
