“Government is just another word for the things we do together, like setting up staged drug buys at a concert venue, then arresting the venue’s owner, imprisoning him, and taking his property from him because he didn’t do enough to stop the staged drug buys.” [Radley Balko]

I’m not mistaken in that in general, appellate decisions are not applied retroactively.
