    I had a similar sensation whenever I took my work home.

    I'd settle for an x-ray ... instead of your proposed x-rated :D

    I've met many people in management who thought they pooped gold but as this shows it's always the guys at the bottom who are actually doing it for the company. :D

    Now I understand the expression 'gold has bottomed out'.

    The humorous aspects aside, what bothers me is that a man was charged with and tried for a crime when there is no evidence of a crime having been committed. Such things are not allowed in most of the Western world as far as I know.

    That is true. But the circumstantial evidence seems overwhelming.
    And still, it remains circumstantial.

    In the end, what could sink the accused is the question of where he got the money that was deposited in his account.

    There's plenty of indicators of a crime. The legal stand in criminal law that untraceable amounts of gold was transported by some dark and ribald method is a direct inference in order to support the truth of an assertion of guilt. It's not much of a stretch to say where and how he amassed his Booty.

    Insert joke.

    I found this compelling evidence that is beyond circumstantial:
    "Although the prosecution couldn't definitively identify the pucks Lawrence sold, they did say they matched an exclusive mold the Mint uses."
    I don't know how definitive the mold data were, but if they are like fingerprints, the only way he could sell one is to have stolen it beforehand.

    I don't know nothin bout Canadian law but when the victim here, being the mint, cannot show a loss you do not have evidence of a crime to begin with.

    Now popping up with 180K without any explanation looks suspicious here in the states we have an absolute right not to incriminate yourself. Here we can stand mute as any and all accusations are presented and offer no explanatation whatsoever.

    It is oft not the crime but the coverup that causes ruin, just ask Martha Stewart.


    Put me on that jury and I vote not guilty on these facts (while I glare at the prosecutor for mucking up what should be a no brainier conviction).
