Re: This is just Censorship

"Relying on your politicians to remain intelligent and competent is really not a good method of governing if the past several thousand years of human history has shown us anything."

Relying on your citizens to let bygones be bygones is not a good method of running a legal system either. That's why your legal system explicitly spells out notions like "spent conviction". There has to be a balance and, in this case, NT1 went one way and NT2 went the other, so it clear that there *is* a balance. It is a happy (and instructive) co-incidence that this judge was asked to decide on two cases at the same time and felt able to decide differently.
