They say ex-prosecutor because they are going to dig deeper into his dealings...

None? What about all those people released from death row when found to have been innocent?
Does that mean the prosecutor who obtained the conviction was corrupt, or does that mean that the prosecutor was human, just like the police, detectives, jury, and judge - who were all convinced that the evidence at the time was beyond a reasonable doubt?

Political corruption has been a problem in this town a very long time. Once you take out all the garbage Muncie can come together as a real community. Race, money, power and political corruption goes a long way. This is why the good people are so divided. We use to to teach our children to get help from officers. We raise them to think they can become anything including president. If you live in Muncie you just want the garbage out so that our kids can grow up and become productive people in the community. So, they never turn out like some of our well known crooks. Sorry, I should have said our well respected crooks in the community.

What isn't there is that the guy that got punched had a gun and was going for it. The FBI re-opened the case after the bribery arrests to try to get Mr. Hinds to turn on Alexander. The FBI intimidated all the witnesses that saw the occurrence and couldn't get a case against Mr. Hinds - so it went through more than just the Muncie Prosecutor - it reached the federal level and it was deemed justified.

I've known Jeff for a long time. I've never seen him pick on anyone, but rather, others think he is weak because he is a big guy. I've seen big guys, small guys, old guys, blue collar and white collar people insult him to his face because he is big. He's gotten smacked by people and he didn't retaliate because he knew he would hurt him. Jeff is anything but weak. He once knocked out the entire Ball State Rugby Team in one night when they tried to take over a bar he was the bouncing at. They came back and apologized the next day and then they were all friends. I've not seen him go after anyone that didn't attack him first.

Jeff is actually a nice guy - got caught up in the politics and paid his price and is still paying for it. Jeff Hinds would give you his shirt off his back if you needed it and I've seen him do a heck of a lot of good for a lot of people.

What you don't hear is that the judge and Mr Alexander were long time friends... the only reason Mr. Alexander didn't go down for bribery, too.

Lastly, I watched a trial while at Ball State where the burglar was found in a car with all the merchandise. it looked like he did it AND he was in jail at the time of the trial for burglary. During the trial, it was obvious that he was set up by his two friends that were mad at him. OBVIOUS! The Prosecutors didn't care that this guy didn't do it. It looked like an easy case to win against Alexander, so they prosecuted him. It took the jury 20 minutes to find him not guilty. Likely one of the stories where he got off a guilty person, but it simply was not the case. He was innocent as the day is long and the prosecutor had the guilty man in court and chose not to go after him after the truth was revealed by more than 3 witnesses that saw two men running from the scene of the crime and none matched the description of the man on trial. Witnesses reported him in the bar waiting for his girlfriend at the time of the burglary.

If this is one of the cases that he/they got a bad wrap over for getting a guilty man out of jail, then it is a sad day. Mr. Alexander let his own son go to jail on drug charges hoping it would clean him up. I'm not saying they didn't do anything wrong, just saying there is a hell of a lot more to the story than the media has reported. And the judge that put Mr. Hinds in Jail was caught with hookers by Mr. Hinds - on tape, which is why Mr. Hinds was sent to jail for contempt - because he surveilled him with prostitutes and had it on tape. Also, the FBI agent.... crashed a helicopter while in Virginia and attending FBI training - which is why he was assigned to po-dunk Muncie IN.
