Re: One big difference

  Kamala, Kamala, Kamala, Whatabout, Whatabout, Whatabout; One big difference, they didn't get executed did they?

  No, I agree many prosecutors convince themselves of an accused person's guilt way too soon and aren't skeptical enough of the evidence or the process but in Kamala's case all the defendants are still alive.

   Under old English law, the prosecuting DA in Missouri would forfeit his own life in a case like this.

Huh - Can't discuss the VP????  We're not the MS/L media, we can talk about kameela, the VP of the USofA.  She was a devastating prosecutor for minorities, her record is clear. - although I see why kkk joe selected her as VP, as they both have a history of being anti-black.

Re: One big difference

That`s rich complaining about "whataboutism" we`re going on a 5 year daily barrage of "what about Trump???" .  "What about" is valid, if someone is going to drive their car without engine oil in the crankcase, to ask "Whatabout if you ruin your engine?" is a perfectly reasonable point to make.

Difference in circumstance not a difference in type.

If you hate prosecutorial misconduct you certainly hate our current doj.

Re: One big difference

None of the several hundred Y’All Queda suspects have gone to trial yet.

But if you’re talking taking a plea and turning state’s evidence, I suppose.

Re: No, there's big difference in type!

  Why do you think the previous Illinois governor commuted all the standing death penalty sentences to life in prison?  Because they discovered that twelve of the previous executions had been of innocent men.  He couldn't even begin to guarantee any of the people to be executed were guilty.  Better to keep them alive in prison than murder them and be wrong.

  We have the same problem with state & prosecutors that we have with the police, the lack of accountability. If more prosecutors and police were held accountable for their wrong actions we'd have a lot less of this nonsense.

  That's why I say, under old English law, if you gave false testimony that resulted in the wrongful conviction of another person, you suffered the same exact punishment.  If a DA withholds evidence, it's the same thing as false testimony.

  Your problem with "Kamala, Kamala, Kamala" is that it doesn't ever help to correct the situation.  It's just "if your side does it, then we can do it".

The DOJ with held evidence during both of the Trump impeachment hearings. Adam Bullschiff went so far as to read from a fake transcript that only existed in his mind.
