To put it mildly, Scalia is a frakking thug, whose definition of 'Justice' is too much like Cardinal Richelieu's.

A state I used to live in, Virginia, won't even listen to exonerating evidence after a certain deadline. It doesn't matter what kind of proof you might have -- DNA, a confession, statements by all the arresting officers and the DA -- they sweep all that under the rug.
