Justice in the Chavez Revolution

A judge ordered the 43 active military officers who are invoking Article 350 of the Constitution arrested.

To make it even more folkloric, the judge said the arrests will not take place until Monday, because “I am not on duty on weekends”. One of the lawyers of one of the officers said he would seek an injunction fron the Courts as the Constitution states that high-ranking military officers can only be tried by the Supreme Court.

I agree with my brother the Tyromaniac, let them try to arrest them:
