If Gideon is a democrat he will repudiate this article. I agree with him that the decision is disappointing. But only dictators presume to replace a legal decision, properly grounded in a country's law, with their own view of what that decision should have been. An independent legal system is a critical component of a democracy. If you undermine it on the basis that you disagree with it, you simply place yourself above the law. If there is a critique of the decision so that it can justifiably be said that the Court is behaving as a tool of the State then this isn't it. This is a poor effort from someone who is trusted to behave justly, however iconoclastic their view. Disappointing.
