Prosecutorial misconduct. Well folks, this one is a hot button of mine. Ask the average citizen, and they are totally unaware that such a thing ever happens. After all, prosecutors are honorable people who are committed to ethics, justice, upholding the law, and to helping protect the public by ensuring that the ”bad guys” are sternly dealt with, and if necessary, isolated from society, or even put to death.

[Yup, many seem to think prosecutors are some how infallible or some how looking out for the best interests of society, victims, or any number of things. They’re only actually looking out for one thing, their careers. I’ve had numerous other people come into my life recently who have had their own experiences with the local prosecutor, not to mention a run in from the prosecutorial side.
Nothing says stand up guy than saying there’s not enough evidence to pursue charges against someone for committing a crime even though they posted pictures of themselves committing said crime on Facebook. *No this is neither a joke or exaggeration. A man broken in and vandalized a property and took pictures of himself trespassing on said property as well vandalizing it. The response of the prosecutors office was, “Not enough evidence to prosecute.”*
Remember that the next time you think the law will somehow provide justice. Because as I’ve said before, “there is no correlation between the law and justice”. Not to mention the prosecutorial motto, “It takes a good prosecutor to convict a guilty man, it takes a great prosecutor to convict an innocent one.”
This is a reminder of why I like my buddy
Mike Jefferson so much. –B ]
