The Alabama Supreme Court seems no closer to being out of debt to former Gov. Bob Riley than it was when he proudly announced that he owned it. In that Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange and Riley are allies, Strange is still reaping the benefits left behind by the ex-governor.

We all know for a fact that if Strange doesn’t get the decision he wants from a judge or the lower court, he goes to the Supreme Court where he knows he will receive its stamp of approval as with the recent gambling rulings. Newly elected Chief Justice Roy Moore has not added any credibility, respect or fairness to the court.

There is a case related to gambling before Moore and the Supreme Court, and Moore is out speaking publicly on personal beliefs and opinions against gambling.

Where is the justice in that, and what does it mean? It means we have a court system we cannot trust. Will it change? I wouldn’t hold my breath.
