[Cross-posted at Hatewatch.] Onetime Minuteman leader Chris Simcox has filed papers seeking to act as his own attorney in his upcoming trial in Phoenix on child-molestation charges, raising the prospect that he could wind up cross-examining his own alleged young victims on the stand. Simcox was arrested in July 2013 and accused of molesting his daughter…

    This is just wrong. Confronting your accuser and being able to cross examine a child are very different things.

      They will most likely do it by CCTV. It still sucks but it’s the least harmful way they’ve come up with.

    If he attempts to intimidate the witnesses he will be dealt with forthwith. No judge would allow it. The man has a fool for a client. Say bye bye for a nice looooong time.

    I have an idea that will enlighten him to why guns are not the best way to deal with situations.

      What, an accident where he gets shot? Let’s see, will he think that anything good comes of that? I kinda doubt it. I like the idea though. Let’s give him the opportunity, to clean a gun with a round in the chamber.

        Have him place it in his bra and look down the barrel as he adjusts it.

        don’t be mean. Just sentence him to some years in a really cool prison and annoiunce his crime daily on the pa system – he’ll pay dearly.
