7. My point exactly.
Edited on Mon Apr-04-11 11:23 AM by DFW
Deliberately hiding exculpatory evidence has the same effect as manufacturing fake evidence, and has
the same result: railroading an innocent into prison or the death chamber. There are two main motives
for doing this: 1.) political expediency or 2.) bigotry.

Whichever it is, the bad apple needs to be sentenced to the full term meted out to the innocent convict
with his personal assets seized to help with material compensation, as there is no way to compensate for
the time lost or the personal anguish.

Going after a person the prosecutor is convinced is guilty is one thing. Going after someone because a
prosecutor sees it as an asset in his future campaign for Governor or Senator is quite another. There is
supposed to be a difference between a tough prosecutor and a cowardly, ambitious asshole, although coming
from the South, I am the first to admit there is far too little difference far too often.
