U.S. v. Arqueta-Ramos (9th Cir. - Sept. 20, 2013)

Ah, the majesty of criminal justice in federal court.  Like when you pack a group of 66 unrelated illegal aliens into a courtroom -- alongside their numerous lawyers -- and take their pleas en masse, telling the assembled masses to "stand" if they don't understand you, and dispensing justice in the same way you slaughter cattle.

And do the same thing, over and over again, hundreds of times a year.

That's "Operation Streamline" for you.

The latest permutation of which doesn't satisfy Rule 11 either.
