    Right to a SPEEDY TRIAL.
    Sixth amendment.
    We have to obey the constitution.
    Not the government?

  4. Where is St. Louis? I don’t even know what country this video is talking about

    • Leah Fugere Still waiting for an answer? Google would have answered in seconds lol

    • @light bulb there is a St. Louis in Quebec and this is a Canadian station so I was curious why they wouldn’t specify what country this is in

    • @Leah Fugere That is true, my bad. News in general is horrible for announcing specifics but in this case I would have assumed it was Missouri. My apologies!

    • It’s Disneyland.

      They’re on the fed’s take. They’re not going to talk bad about the government cause the government keeps them fat and happy.

    They don’t have court dates, so the situation was not “brought under control”. They have a right to a speedy trial as defined by the 6th amendment. COVID does not nullify basic rights.
