Excuse me, but the sworn testimony of two Jedi is absolutely not hearsay, nor would it be biased. To use a real world analogy Hav, a cop who takes the witness stand and gives sworn testimony is actually giving evidence, and is not 'biased' towards the accused, unless there is actually evidence of said bias. The Jedi in this case had been shot at, their transport ship was destroyed, and they personally witnessed the invasion since they fucking hitched a ride on two of the troop landers.Havok wrote:So again, there IS NO EVIDENCE OF THE INVASION that Padme can present other than her word, and the word of the Jedi that is complete hearsay and completely biased, assuming they were even legally allowed to be there. Fuck you are dense.
Hearsay evidence is 'This guy told me what this other guy said to him'. The reason why hearsay evidence is inadmissable is immediately obvious if you ever played the game Chinese Whispers as a child. But if I personally hear someone admit to doing something, and I get up in a court and swear that's what I heard, then that is actually evidence that can be used against the person in question.
To your last point, if the Jedi are legally not even allowed to be there - then how the fuck are they guardians of peace and JUSTICE of the Republic?
