“… And here is your badge, uniform, gun and no bill…”
Wherever the real power in a Government lies, there is the danger of oppression.-James Madison
Friends -The power in the aptly named “criminal” justice system lies with the judiciary, DAO and the cops. Daily, acting in concert, they engage in the systematic oppression of the accused. Madison was right.
The Judiciary, DAO and the cops are all in cahoots in our farcical system. The DAO doesn’t go after a bad cop. Hell, they buy him a beer & give him a parade.
That’s the world we live in and that friends is why the defense bar must always stand together.
