Reform of Criminal Justice Much Needed
And of reforming the legal / criminal justice system, we have this development, the dismissal of indictment against Sen. Stevens, a judge demanding accountability of the prosecutors office, and vows of reform. How far will it go (stealing one of Doc's good lines)? Supremacy Claus sure has talent as evidenced by his biting wit in the comments in the source (see link). Recall that the prosecutors misconduct purportedly caused dismissal, and only the Senator's age prevented his retrial. He's not on his deathbed but what good is it to prosecute the elderly? This is a pragmatic business after all. And of course he's suffered enough, probably lost his status as well as the election. Enough already.
