    Ignorance of the law does not excuse is MERELY a doctrine.

    Given recent developments in "the law", criminal and civil, this discussion needs to be revived big time! The U.S. Supreme Court just ruled that the police can take your DNA if you get arrested for anything! This is serious y'all.
    DNA can be transported and planted anywhere the police choose to place it! We should be in the streets protesting this decision! :mad:

    Dr. Amos N. Wilson says that "the law" is not something sacred or holy! :) It's just a bunch of rules written by those with the power to impose it on others. I agree! I studied it for 12 years in federal prison and do you know what I learned? The Dred Scott decision is still the law of the land. I.e., inter alia, a black man has no rights that a white man is bound to respect! :mad: The constitution and laws of the United States and various states were written by a bunch of common criminals, aka the "Founding Fathers"! Who then wrote the history books to make it appear they did the so-called Indians a favor, by stealing their land and putting them on reservations . The ones they didn't exterminate. "Like good christians some would burn the witches,....later some brought slaves to gather riches"! And you know what they did to us! :mad:

    It is pretty crazy that I stumbled upon this subject because I just finished writing a paper on this very subject. I am actually going to expand on this paper in the upcoming semester and will be doing more research. This is a major issue, especially in our community. Ignorantia juris non excusat, the latin and legal phrase of this doctrine, is deeply rooted in this nations legal history and courts stand by this more times than not. I know someone said that this is just a legal doctrine, but legal doctrines are the law (precedent/case law/common law). We have to teach ourselves the laws which impact our everyday lives.

    That I seem so excited about? I am not sure where a legit question begins or where the relevance to my comment and your question about these gentlemen exist. With all due respect, I may need you to elaborate with a legit question.
