Kangaroo Court - The Book 'The Shooting Salvationist' is an Example of "Kangaroo Court"!
A kangaroo court is a colloquial term for a sham legal proceeding or court. The outcome of a trial by kangaroo court is essentially determined in advance, usually for the purpose of ensuring conviction, either by going through the motions of manipulated procedure or by allowing no defense at all.
A kangaroo court's proceedings deny due process rights in the name of expediency. Such rights include the right to summon witnesses, the right of cross-examination, the right not to incrimate oneself, the right not to be tried on secret evidence, the right to control one's own defnse, the right to exclude evidence that is improperly obtained, irrelevant or inherently inadmissible, e.g., hearsay, the right to exclude judges or jurors on the grounds of partiality or conflect of interest, and the right of appeal.
Mr. David R. Stokes, the jury has spoken loud and clear and Norris did not need to exercise his Right of Appeal.
Mr. David R. Stokes uses kangaroo court methods. You who purchase his book have been snookered.
