    I assume this explains why Grand Jury transcripts are rarely provided and given to defendants “prior to trial.”

    Great article Martin.

    So, how much better is it in Mexico, as you are conflicted about citizenship?

    Dear RP:

    Comparing Mexican and US judicial systems is an interesting topic. First, both work like a charm if you have money, both suck if you don’t. Here in the US we have a system of common law, Mexico on the other hand has a system based on Roman Code, dating from more than 3,000 years; quite more sophisticated. Kind of comparing the system of measure, Mexico has the metric system like the rest of the World; the US has the one based on the length of the foot of the King and the temperature of the butt of a sick caw.

    But, lets compare the US with, for example: Sweden, Great Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Spain, Austria, or even Italy. We may even find ourselves holding the short stick if we compare the US with Canada, or Malaysia.

    Are we aspiring to be like Mexico, or the Helvetic Confederation?

    There is the undisputable fact that we have 10 times more people in jails per capita than any other organized country. Are we 10 times more criminal than Germans, or the French?

    Or shall we concentrate on the issue at hand, justice in El Paso.

    Our system only works when the check and balance process is in place.
    Who checks the Grand Jury in El Paso?
    Who checks Judge Montalvo?
    Who checks the El Paso DA?

    Until “We the People” are allowed to see what goes on, there are no checks and balances.

    All court records need to be open.…..or is there something to hide?
