THE DEAD DON’T TESTIFY

There are some practices that are so dumb there is nothing to be said except, “How can you be so blindly stupid? Is there an explanation that a lay person can’t see?”

If a child is murdered, the killer can be tried without (obviously) any testimony from the child. So why can’t a kidnapper or murderer or rapist be tried without testimony from a still-living victim?
