In a piece dated June 10th, Daniel Ruth in the Tampa Tribune writes: “Jurors declined to elaborate on their decision to convict Little, noting they had decided to pursue a book deal about the case.
Or put another way, while the jury was supposed to be objectively pondering whether a man will spend many years in prison, they were entering into a potential business relationship the success of which could be determined by the outcome of the trial.”
Something really stinks about this case. Because if Max isn’t convicted, there’s no book deal so the jury had to make it happen. And one of them, a Judas, had the guts to cry to Max, “we tried, we tried.” If this jury book deal ain’t proof enough there was collusion in Max Hardcore’s trial, let’s again try this thought on for size.
The Fed government conspired with Jaded Video to entrap Max. It was Jaded Video who sent the movies to Tampa, yet Jaded was granted immunity. Why was that? Why has no reporter covering the trial addressed that issue? Not to mention the fact that judge Susan C. Bucklew’s chummy nature with the prosecution was enough for Max’s lawyers to request another judge. But they were denied in another sampling of southern fried justice.
If nothing else, Max’s attorneys need to sweat this Ruth guy who seems to know things that could toss that entire mockery of a trial out the window.
