Summum ius summa iniuria--More law, less justice

The only thing to keep in mind about the Tucson shooting
...is this photograph:
Christina Taylor-Green, 9
All the rest is bullshit.
Born on September 11, she died on another dark day for America
January 10, 2011
THE young girl represented the future of a nation in its darkest hour. As a baby Christina-Taylor Green featured inFaces of Hope: Babies Born on 9/11, a book that emerged from the horror of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Now she is dead, the victim of a killing rampage that has left the nation reeling again.
Christina-Taylor was shot dead after accompanying a neighbour to meet Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords outside a shopping mall in her home city of Tucson.
''The neighbour, who also was shot, thought it would be nice if she brought Christina-Taylor up to the Safeway,'' her uncle, Greg Segalini, said. ''[She] took one on the chest and she is dead.''

Her mother, Roxanna, told The Arizona Star: "She was born back east. September 11 affected everyone there and Christina-Taylor was always very aware of it. She was very patriotic and wearing red, white and blue was really special to her.''
Her mother said her daughter was aware of the inequities in the world. "She was all about helping people and being involved. It's so tragic. She went to learn today and then someone with so much hatred in their heart took the lives of innocent people."
Christina-Taylor's father, John Green, told the newspaper his daughter had just been elected to the student council at Mesa Verde Elementary School and had been interested in politics.
Dead ... Christina-Taylor Green was a student council member eager to meet her congresswoman.
''She was a good speaker. I could have easily seen her as a politician.''
Christina-Taylor loved ballet, gymnastics, animals and, unsurprisingly, given her pedigree, was a keen baseball player - the only girl on a team called the Pirates, where she played second base. Her father is a scout for the Los Angeles Dodgers and her grandfather, Dallas Green, managed the Philadelphia Phillies to the 1980 World Series championship.
In a statement, the Dodgers' owner, Frank McCourt, said: ''We lost a member of the Dodgers family today.''
Christina-Taylor had recently made her first Holy Communion at the St Odilia Catholic Church in Tucson.
Bishop Gerald Kicanas wrote in a letter to parishioners sent from Jordan: '' 'Let the children come to me,' Jesus said (Matthew 19:14). Christina is with Him.''
