Immunity

Sugar Land, TX

#1 Jan 4, 2011
The laws of total immunity for prosecutors and judges should be reduced to the same level as that for policemen. Their callous disregard for exculpatory evidence in many cases send many innocent persons to prison, some to death row. They are more interested in quick disposition of criminal cases than in justice.

The police line-ups and pictorial rogue galleries are part of the kangaroo system that permits demented "witnesses" to point out anyone who vaguely looks like the perpetrator and get them convicted. These witnesses are often egged-on by incompetent or unscrupulous lawmen who conduct the line-ups.
