Are we going to have a "Trial Of The Century" anytime soon? Should we have one? If we do, what will you do if you disagree with the verdict?

Perhaps the Ghislaine Maxwell trial qualifies, as it is the first time in history that someone has been convicted of trafficking to----no one at all! "Trafficking" implies providing for a customer, and there seems to be no customers to be found, anywhere!

So we have the terminology clear from the start - It's not a legitimate trial if a verdict can be dispensed with. The colloquial term for that scenario is a lynch mob.

I can think of three (possibly four) separate or group prosecutions right now that would fit the description 'trial of the century'. And one possible future focus of prosecution(s) that would make the others look like child's play by comparison. None of them are debatable within BHO rules and only one of them has even a 20% likelihood of taking place. In all the others the process of justice would in one form or another be obstructed by political allies.
