The article summary should not refer to the court as a "Massachusetts court." That means a STATE court of Massachusetts. This is a FEDERAL APPEALS COURT which just happens to be located in Boston.

Everyone knows Scalia and Thomas are both lunatics who almost always vote against the fair and just outcome.
Okay, then why would the jury vote to convict him, if it would have been better left for an employment issue?
I get the feeling you have never spent a day in jail. If you knew what it felt like, you'd probably have decided differently.
Mr. Anonymous Coward, have you ever been involved in a court proceeding or even had any run-ins with the criminal justice system before? No? That's what I thought. Court affidavits can and DO get perjured, as a matter of course. Why would it necessarily be any more reliable than a Wikipedia post?
I would disagree with your view that Klaudt is a rapist. While he did insert his fingers into their vaginas, I disagree with the characterization of this as rape.
You need your head examined. There is nothing wrong with a 15 year old woman being with a 27 year old man. That has been happening since the dawn of mankind. My mother in fact was 15 when she got married, to a much older man. The world is != U.S.A.
Many other cultures do not have the ridiculous practice of treating people past puberty as children that the U.S. seems to have.
Why would YOU get 25 cent per gallon oil? Bush's corporate friends at Exxon, Chevron, etc. would much rather pocket the profits, and continue charging you $2.50 a gallon.
There's actually a new CompUSA retailer, it's what used to be the TigerDirect.Com retail stores/outlets. They are now called CompUSA, same old logo and everything. There's only a few locations nationwide, Raleigh and Durham being two that I know of. The store itself looks nothing like the old CompUSA, and actually has prices and products more along the line of Micro Center.
Cops are allowed to lie to people, but it's somehow illegal to lie to them? Sounds like a bullshit double standard to me.
Just another fine example of our justice system at work. Let me guess: your friend took a plea bargain and did not fight the charges in a jury trial?
No, they won't realize anything. They won't be prosecuted. Cops break the law all the time and never get prosecuted for it. The laws only apply to what the police call "civilians" (even though they are supposed to be a "civilian" police force).
