Justice in Balance. - the USA Today story; raises what we consider to be a paramount issue; as anyone can see by our DailyKos Blogroll.

Meanwhile the Wall Street Journal reflects a perverse look implying
defendants should be thankful for prosecutorial misconduct
.

WSJ ask's does Prosecutorial Misconduct actually help defendants?

The WSJ is a follow up take on the
USA Today series on Prosecutorial Misconduct;

Prosecutor Misconduct lets Defendants off easy!

Washington insider/activist Andrew Kreig also works with Legal Schauzer as they report on the story Justice Integrity Project Prosecutor Misconduct Story continues ;

Andrew Kreig reflects on many articles such as Harper's, USA Today and AlterNet's detail of how parents were put to death by perverse use of the Espionage Act

My Parents were Executed by the Espionage Act

We need to focus upon those historical issues as they apply in the contemporary manner pertaining to the Karl Rove's witch hunt of WikiLeaks as is poignantly pointed out in the Legal Schauzer story;

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    frailty. It's been around since the beginning of any justice system.  Good news we do catch some, the bad news is not all and we never will.

      While no one may dispute your banter tsg;
      your reflection furthers the dilemma.

      We never really care to hear about injustice that is not directly connected to us; though we all care to see long term inflexible lone wolf's win against injustice.

      Problem is - we only hear about 1/1 million'th of the purported cases out there - even with modern day net ways.

      The balance of scales is tipping further down oppression's pathway - directly proportionate to our apathy.

      is endemic because its not dealt with by the courts who refuse to deal with all but the most egregious misconduct by calling it "harmless error".  Comes from having the ranks of the judiciary filled with ex-prosecutors, done by both goopers and democrats.  When is the last time you recall an appointment of a long-time defense lawyer to the bench.  It happens but not with much frequency.

    It convicts the innocent and lets the guilty off on a technicality.

    As a defense attorney with no defense, I sometimes have prayed for judicial or prosecutorial error.  But the true heartbreaks of practicing criminal law come from having an innocent client against an unethical and heartless prosecutor.

    Watching the OJ Simpson trial was hard for me.  The gaming of the physical evidence was shocking to my eyes.  Somehow, that jury, maybe through their cultural lenses, was able to see that.

      We have a hard enough time with the simple complexity of errant logic root makes a bad tree.

      Your "A right answer to the wrong question is a wrong answer" ; required a double-take - as it suggested the same banterous way (though in venacular never witnessed heretofor).

      Be that as it may, the title of your comment has neither applicable; for it is a true root statement and correct result conclusion.

      What is forthcoming, in the stories yet to blog this way; are the similar reflections germane to the overall subject matter.

      There are no places in a good society - for "intentional" bad faith prosecution.

      All manifest injustice, whether you are accused, prosecutor, defense attorney or citizen; should be, arguendo,Void ab initio!
