Was it nullification?

Filmmaker Ira Isaacs, who had made pornographic movies involving eating feces and sex with animals, went to trial for obscenity. A member of the jury told the judge that another member stated she didn’t believe in obscenity laws. This is an affront to rigging the system and the ego of the judges err the law or so the judge would have you believe. And he informed the jurors that their job was to do exactly what he wants them to do err judge the facts and not the law, which is bullshit. This caused the judge to further attempt to rig the trial err instruct the defense and prosecution have a go of their closing arguments again. Isaacs says that was pretty pointless since the jury made it clear it was an impasse.

The interesting part is that the woman who may have said she didn’t believe in obscenity laws changed from that position to maybe this work does have some artistic value. Which is also bullshit. I have not seen Hollywood Scat Amateurs (and never, ever will), but I am going to go with the guess that it’s no where near art, particularly since early reports on this case state the jury found the evidence unwatchable.

I’m inclined to think this was one juror judging the law. And good for her. This man was making adult movies with other adults for adults to watch. They’re not my cup of tea but I don’t want anyone going to jail for 20 years over that crap (no pun intended).

    Shouldn’t he face some kind of charges about the animal sex thing? Unless, of course, the animals signed consent forms….

    You know if there is a “Hollywood Scat Amateurs” that there is a “Hollywood Scat Amateurs II”, “Hollywood Scat Amateurs III”…

    David Lynch. Eraser Head. Walked out with date when the puppies appeared, not wanting to see what happened to them. Was surprised in retrospect I lasted that long.

    Sometimes even acknowledged artists produce pure crap.

    I think my response to it was the correct one. I have yet to think he should be prosecuted for the film.

    Mikee I own a signed copy of that film!

    And that should tell you everything you’d ever want to know about me. I think I need to watch it again, its been a year-or-two..

    Animals are not consenting adults.

  6. SayUncle Says:

    Breda, True and I doubt I’d object much if he was charged with animal cruelty and not obscenity.
