I'd shudder to think what would happen if judicial matters all became a matter of a popular vote. Speaking of "mob rule"... Hell, even with our Republican form of government, they wouldn't allow this. And even where jurys are involved, the jury selection process isn't without cautiousness to try to assure an impartial jury.
I could see it now. Vote to see who goes to jail, and the basis of a crime decided by vote, rather then by laws. Umm, I think I'd pass
Nah, Mike C would want to avoid that (along with the sort of flames an open vote could generate), and for good reason.
