    Absolutely, he should be prosecuted and sent to jail.

    I am a "law and order" democrat and believe in "deterrent" style sentencing for many cases: "Don't let this happen to you!"

    Thx
    Texas has the most appalling criminal justice of the entire nmation. They have a two-part system; one for crimes and another for everything else, including a Texas Criminal Supreme Court -- all so they can execute faster.

    There is a revolting SCOTUS decision upholding a Texas decision that "proof of actual innocence is not a bar to execution when not timely produced".

    I shit you not. It's the Dred Scott decision, in new clothes.

    Tell me again what a swell guy Scalia was?

    You do realize that what you suggest is something under Sheria law right? To avoid prison a guilty man can pay the victims family a sum and walk free.

    @Loki is no wooly-headed nutter. But it is probably the case that he's befuddled by the CONCEPT that a person could commit a crime in the course of his duties, if he is part of the US justice system.

    I find THAT a tad frightening in its naivety.

    ^Bump^

    I couldn't link to the thread about the Bronx DA's office, but this thread is also relevant to the discussion.

    IYO, is it possible for a person to commit a crime whilst serving as a prosecutor, as to the defendants she brings to trial? Can an ADA's conduct fall so far below standards that she could/should go to prison herself, for abusing innocent people, etc.?

    I said FUCK YEAH!

    Your thoughts?
    Thanks from Friday13

    I think it is impossible to read the facts of the above case and not conclude, this prosecutor is guilty of attempted first degree murder.

    What say you? Should he be prosecuted for trying to have the state kill a man he knew was not guilty?
    Yes because basically that's what he was attempting to do. He knew what he was doing so this was premeditated.
    Thanks from Madeline and Friday13

    No, it certainly DOES NOT WORK. It did this time, though.

    Not so far. That man still hasn't been arrested for attempted murder.

    So the system works, then?

    It will not happen. As a state actor, he has immunity.
