With the recent dismissal of the Cliven Bundy case, many in the legal community are calling for more accountability for prosecutors who sometimes use immoral and illegal means to obtain guilty verdicts.

  1. We have a Supreme Court missing in action. The judicial system reports up thru them. Their inaction invites Congressional action limiting the authority of the judiciary to address specific issues. One fix is to make the 9 judicial regions local in authority. So the Ninth Circuit can only enforce the verdicts on the people of that region. Nation verdicts in scope would have to be joined by the same actions in other circuits giving the same verdict. Conflicting verdicts are resolved by the Supreme Court.

    Janet Reno is the poster child for STUPID with respect to displaying arrogance in federal law enforcement… rather than arresting Koresh at the market while grocery shopping or some like opportunity they appeared to Grand Stand and caused death and destruction.

    It isn’t the men and women in uniform who commits to these abusive displays of tyrannical authority but politicians who refuse to admit or are incapable of understanding they do not RULE our citizens who have constitutional rights that are decided in court by a jury not by force of violence or theft under “color of law or color of authority.”

  3. This has always been a problem. It seems worse now because it’s more publicized. Imagine if this case were prosecuted 30 years ago…we’d not have heard about the latest developments. The problem is, too few of us pay attention. The commenters here do. Ask your friends, etc., “So what do you think about the judge throwing out the case against Bundy?” Notice the vacant stares.

    These prosecutors should have to personally pay damages to anyone wrongly convicted of a crime.

    When are they going to re examine the Hammond case. These two men had been tried and served their time under bogus charges and some U S Atty decided they needed to spend more time and put them back in prison. This is what the Malheur Refuge uprising was all about. These men need to be out now. State of Oregon you are as corrupt as the Clintons.

    Every time a aggressive prosecutor is caught framing or otherwise going after someone with malaise they should be jailed for the sentence time that their victims would have faced.

  7. A must read is Harvey Silverglate’s book: Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent. This book recounts how prosecutors intimidate and bully usually innocent citizens in order to get at the “bigger fish.” Scary stuff and very common.

  8. Right. Strip them of their law license. Judges should be stripped too.

    • Long ago I knew a CROOKED LAWYER who became a CROOKED JUDGE……..
      Lucky the SOB croaked a few years later.

    The attorney tells the accused, “I have some good news and some bad news.”
    “What’s the bad news?” asks the accused.
    “The bad news is, your blood 
is all over the crime scene, and the DNA tests prove you did it.”
    “What’s the good news?”
    “Your cholesterol is 130.”

  10. In other words Lawyers are some of the MOST dishonest people on the planet. BTW Hillary is among those creeps.

    Boy, where to begin?
    When the living soul John Doe is made to answer for the corporate entity JOHN DOE. We might ought to be a bit more observant.
    How is this possible you ask?

    Through the deception of legalese. Take the word “person” , seems simple enough.
    Until you realize that there are two definitions.
    Legal person = JOHN DOE
    Natural person =living soul
    The chicanery in law is massive and we refuse to think outside the box. Much to our determent.

  12. Until we revamp our system to a point where a prosecutors job is the find the TRUTH this will continue. Prosecutors have used their power for political purposes for years! Look at General Flynn as a perfect example. Mueller and his gang of jackals have bankrupted the guy!

    I guess there is always tar……and my pillow……..

  14. Obama is a great example of just how fast things can go south with the wrong person in charge. I believe that Obama is arguably the most corrupt president to ever serve.

    • Obama didn’t corrupt the Dems. He just gave them an excuse to attempt their Communist/Socialist overthrow of the Government. Because he was half black, they pulled the race card at any opposition to his anti-American, pro-Muslim, pro-Socialist agenda. With Hillary to follow up with another four years of raping the economy, working people, and the military to death, they couldn’t fail.

      Then Trump decided to run, Thank God.

    • If there was ever an actual “Manchurian Candidate” to sit in the White House, Obama is that person. He was hand-picked by the leaders of the Communist revolution which tried to overthrow the US government in the 1960s. That attempt was an unholy alliance between wealthy, young, white academics and black street smart radicals – think Bill Ayers and Huey Newton, just to name two. Many of those radicals not only survived, they became prominent in universities across the nation. SDS and The Black Panthers are, today, AntiFa and BLM. They are introducing “white privilege” into academia, and attempting to destroy law enforcement by claiming “institutional racism”. Sound familiar if you were an adult in the 1960s?

    • And typically acts like a spoiled 2 year old brat that need a BEATING……not a spanking.
      WHAT A REAL LOSER and America got screwed for 8 years……..

      • Captain Mann | January 17, 2018 at 6:58 am |

        Referring to Obama: “And typically acts like a spoiled 2 year old brat that need a BEATING…” That would make him German. Otherwise, he’s Polish. heh

  25. We should start with Mueller.

  26. Victor Nazarian | January 16, 2018 at 11:31 am |

    Duke Lacrosse Team! The prosecutor in that case wanted to hurt those boys regardless of the facts and make a name for himself so he could run for election.

  27. Kevin Droopy McKee | January 16, 2018 at 11:18 am |

    It is better that some that are guilty go free to make sure they never imprison an innocent person! The people who make up the justice system are corrupt as the corrupt can be, and there’s hardly anything, other than we the people physically removing them, that can be done about it!

  28. The corruption is more wide spread than we all even know. Our society is becoming more lawless by the day and they justify it by calling people racist and insane.

  29. This is long overdue.

  30. You don’t mean lawyers are crooked do you? Never would have seen that coming.

    My sister suffered both emotionally and financially at the hands of one of these corrupt prosecutors. Despite no evidence placing her anywhere close to the state where the fraud was conducted, nor any connection to those commiting the crime, he harrassed her and even had her put in jail. She even had evidence she was halfway across the country! Thankfully, a few well placed letters put an end to his antics.

  32. Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro ruled in Las Vegas that federal prosecutors acted with willful disregard for constitutional due process rights.. “willful” violations of due process rights of defendants, including failing to properly turn over evidence to their lawyers.

    • So why are the prosecutors not in jail if their action was willful? That is another problem we have, not putting the crooks in jail.

  33. The prosecutor job is (TO WIN). Change the rules and job to (FOR TRUTH & JUSTICE) for Americans FIRST!

    • Right on!

    • Absolutely agree! A prosecutors job should be to find the truth. It isn’t fair when a Citizen is up against Government.

        Like blocking PRESIDENTIAL orders on ILLEAGAL ALIENS immigration???

      • I’ve known many prosecutors over the years – too many are just WORTHLESS BUMS that are only trying for a promotion……NOT THE FACTS……….or just plea-bargaining to save them “working” for a living.
        Some years ago I seen a JERK con the mother of a Murder Victim to agreeing to a 5 years sentence for a first degree Murderer……. 5 witnesses in the room SAW THE THUG shoot the Victim straight on………so much for Justice.

    As long as it isn’t the corruption at the top, fed prosecutors and judges don’t care but that the case enhances their resumes..plenty of cases of fraudulent vows in their oaths to uphold the laws as equal punishment for crimes committed..blatantly in some cases.

    • JusticeVegas | January 17, 2018 at 12:31 am |

      There’s plenty o’ corruption at the top. Just look at the DOJ for the past 30 years. No one has gone to jail.
