phaseolus: Nice as subby's headline is, this case really ain't about sticking your dick in crazy, is it?
IdBeCrazyIf: Clement contends that Bond's actions were "peaceful," and therefore exempted from the treaty, because of the definition of "peaceful" in international law. Treaties, Clement says, "distinguish peaceful as basically being non-warlike." Bond's run-of-the-mill assault, he argues, did not implicate national and international concerns the way a terrorist attack would.[www.toomanymornings.com image 460x300]So if I want to poison a bunch of people at once, just make sure an ex is in the crowd.Got it

phaseolus: Nice as subby's headline is, this case really ain't about sticking your dick in crazy, is it?I heard this story a few minutes ago on NPR and really wanted a much longer story. It's obvious it's about the Federal-treaty-vs.-States'-Rights thing, and whether this one treaty in particular supersedes state law or not, but what are the implications of Bond winning this? Is this purely a general principle thing, or are there specific Federal laws/treaties/whatever that would immediately no longer apply? Or is a favorable decision for the states' rights people something that needs to be in place for future Supreme Court cases?Also -- "This is the second trip to the Supreme Court for Bond." Which organization is paying for this? What do they stand to gain -- warm fuzzy I-was-right-all-along feelings, or some specific thing they eventually want overturned?
