Why prosecutors, as a class, suck
The power of the state is an awesome power. That's mainly why I'm against capital punishment. Period. Any prosecutorial misconduct is too much. And then, there's this.
I have also watched the local elite pressure a prosecutor to not charge their elite friend with a negligent homicide and the case was never brought.
I have watched a prosecutor so intent on charging two people with the murder of two of my friends, that he gave immunity to the real murder and there by inadvertently took the death penalty off the table and then blamed the presiding judge for his stupidity.
So I got out my Tin Drum and beat it for justice.
