Ed Rooney Posted August 18, 2014 Share Posted August 18, 2014 I’m not a lawyer. My father was — a defense attorney, a prosecutor, and then for 30 years a US Congressman. So I grew up surrounded by the law. Besides my own country, I’ve lived in several other nations that support a democratic rule of law. I hold both a US and a European Union passport. Only at Alamy have I encountered a complete reversal of normal democratic procedures. Here we begin by being tossed into jail without a charge, without a word, without so much as a hint of what we’re being punished for. And then after a month we’re told what crime it was we committed. No disagreement allowed, of course. And what difference would it make anyway? We’ve already served the punishment! It’s unfair, it’s draconian, it’s untoward, it’s ridiculous, it’s unhelpful to all concerned, it’s spiteful, it’s unreasonable, it’s inconsistent with any acceptable rule of business, it’s uncivilized, and this practice serves no useful purpose whatsoever. Just fail the images! Fail as many images as don’t meet the standards. Fail them permanently, if you like. But cut out this public school spanking nonsense. Most sincerely yours, Ed Rooney Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
