I am not sure I would say the good guy won. I would say it is a solid victory for the Constitution though.

Well, it was on his property. That is, unless the 'state' owns his property. Hmmm?

Good for him. But I am puzzled by this line from the report:
a suspect can refuse to answer questions at any time in the investigative process. The Supreme Court also held in June 2013 that such silence can be used as evidence in court in its Salinas v. Texas ruling.

"Can be used"? Guess I need to look up the case.


Edit: from a Forbes article:
The Supreme Court “reasoned that there could be many explanations for silence in the face of questioning, and if the witness’s reason was the Fifth Amendment, he was obligated to say so … if a witness mentions the word “lawyer” in declining to speak to investigators, courts are more likely to view that as an invocation that cannot be commented upon … Of course the most basic and obvious lesson of Salinas is that a potential law enforcement target should never speak to an investigator without counsel.”

These were the most conservative members of the Supreme Court, taking away your Fifth Amendment rights. Roberts, Alito, Thomas, Scalia, Kennedy.

I agree with the ruling but I don't know enough about how the deer was killed and why. I never agreed with the commission being above the constitution. But don't agree with poaching in most cases.

And that is the reason I am not sure I would say the "good guy" won. Poaching and poachers are scum and the manner this deer appears to have been killed is lazy at best and done in a manner that isn't in the true spirit of hunting. Still the ruling is a good one and with our Constitution under attack from the highest levels in "our" government it is good to see the supreme law of this land being upheld.
