The Bee's a buzzin':

You know the if the RegisterBee is calling for a change in the rules of procedure which is pro-defendant that something is really wrong with the system. Of course, it is pretty much universally acknowledged that the 21 day rule is unsupportable. The reasoning is interesting: The 21 day rule needs to go away because it is casting doubt on the guilt of capital defendants which is making people wonder whether innocent people might be getting convicted of lesser crimes as well - and we can't have people realizing - oops, I meant thinking - that innocent people get convicted.
