Reprehensible behavior.

Unfortunately, I doubt this story will get the attention it is due in the corporate controlled media.

Hi, Dan.

Do you think it coincidence they made this admission in the middle of the RNC, when all the hoopla will doubtless drown it out? I sure don't!

Let's see. One botched case in all of the cases means they are all botched, huh? Is that the way you interpret your biology experiments too? One bad sample means all the samples are bad? And here I thought you had some education in the scientific method...

Hi, Clay.

One botched case? How about Moussaoui, "the 20th hijacker?"

I hear that the persecutions case for the unpaid library late fees is going to hold up. It's an airtight case.

*sigh*

Am I reading right? The "whistleblower" Detroit prosecutor is now being investigated for HIS misconduct. Is his claim that orders to do what he has done wrong came from higher up? I didn't see that in the article.

Hi, Evie.

It's clearly there: "Convertino has been under investigation for months and filed a whistle-blower lawsuit against Attorney General John Ashcroft earlier this year. In an interview with the AP, Convertino accused Justice Department superiors of thwarting his efforts to introduce some evidence against the defendants at trial."

That's not the misconduct cited

In reply to: Re: DOJ admits prosecutorial misconduct in terror case

He says higher-ups thwarted his efforts to introduce evidence. The misconduct is:

"In its best light, the record would show that the prosecution committed a pattern of mistakes and oversights that deprived the defendants of discoverable evidence (including impeachment material) and created a record filled with misleading inferences that such material did not exist," Justice told the court.

Superiors apparently squashed some zealousness on his part that had they not thwarted could have resulted in FURTHER misconduct had he engaged in a similar pattern of depriving the defendant of evidence.
