With Liberty and Justice for Some

For the very first time, a prosecutor will go to jail for wrongfully convicting an innocent man. The very first time. He lied about evidence in order to lock away an innocent man for 25 years.

So what does a member of the Ruling Class get for trying to rob a man of 25 years of his life?

10 days.

    “What’s newsworthy and novel about today’s plea is that a prosecutor was actually punished in a meaningful way for his transgressions.”

    He didn’t try, Mark. He succeeded.

    On the other hand, loss of his law license is a penalty; there goes his part-time work income for retirement.
