Having the power to try repeatedly to get a conviction to stick sounds great in theory, but in practice it is a tool to abuse and silence a populace. If people are provably guilty, then prosecution ought to be simple. If it is not, perhaps they are not so provably guilty."

That simply isn’t true. New evidence does come to light, especially with the advancements of forensic sciences. Not to mention the incompetence of police and prosecutors that you mentioned earlier.

"Incompetenceis not worth accommodating. New evidence calls for a remanded trial, not a new trial. There is again, a difference."

“A ‘helpful suggestion’ implies that there is an aspect of this proposal that can be helped. The fundamental basis of this proposal is rejected, and my ‘suggestion’ is to save us all the trouble and dispense with this proposal... preferably into a shredder.”

Well, I’d like to personally thank you for deciding your input was worth that of the entire GA, and taking it upon yourself to universally reject this proposal for everyone. However, next time, if you feel to voice your unspecified grievances so desperately, try a suggestion box or a diary. And if you find it so heinous, write something better. Please do write any GA Resolution, at all, to prove your superior knowledge

"I do find myself somewhat amused at your claim that I am presuming to speak for the entirety of the General Assembly when declaring our opposition to this fetid pile of mulch. I also find it amusing that you would bring this proposal up in a forum as public as the General Assembly chamber and then require that we keep our thoughts to ourselves. To both of these things I say: 'Oh my, but you are ADORABLE!'.

"I do not find the legislation targeted by this proposal to be lacking in any means that would necessitate a repeal, and I find your reasoning for this appeal to be both flawed and disingenuous. Moreover, you have proven to me with your commentary just now that you are spiteful, thin-skinned, and potentially belligerent. Thanks to this, you have caused me to double down on my position to the point that I will actively work against this proposal, all thanks to your robust argumentation.

"I do indeed mean my 'helpful suggestion' to dispense with this proposal with the utmost of perspicacity. Its future is most bleak, and it would be better to end its run on the writer's terms rather than let it suffer."

This looks like a great repeal. Let's get it up for a vote!

Coronavirus related. This too. And this. These are all jokes. This isn't. This is, again, but it's also the last one.
