The phrasing of this poll is very interesting: "Would" defendents...get a fair trial? For those who care, this is known as using the subjunctive, which designates the grammatical mood used for subjective, doubtful, hypothetical, etc. statements or questions.

It should be possible for the defendents to get a fair trial...but what do we mean when we use the term fair? An easy trial? A sloppy trial? A messy trial? A swift trial? How about a thorough and uncompromising trial that manages to ferret out the truth from all of them, so that Sweetwater can re-emerge as an entity with some sort of internal and external pride and confidence. And all those who have been on the side of the liars, cheats and thieves are punished as they should be.

When the mayor of San Diego attends Pear Quinones' swearing in ceremony and states "anything for my queen" in a public forum - to which she responds "my king".

Filner began his career in the South Bay, moving the trials down here has me concerned.

WE, the voters had the opportunity to vote Quinones OUT, how she received even one vote is beyond my comprehension. It is obvious those voters failed to read the indictments, the words typed with Quinones' own fingers.

Hopefully the cases will be tried in San Diego - Dumanis and her team deserve to prosecute the lot of them. The truth will either set them free or send them packing.
