Thank you- it is difficult to understand why the people who are sworn by oath to uphold the law are not subject to it.

This article in the Houston Chronicle talks about prosecutorial misconduct, and the lack of discipline for it.

My husband's attorney recently told me that he has seen cases where a "victim" woman comes to the DA and tells them they lied for XYX (revenge, to gain custody in a divorce, among a few) reason and refuses to testify against the man, and the DA will still go forward and prosecute because the "win" means that much to them and their career. This attorney was, himself, a prosecutor for 20+ years before moving to the role of defense attorney, so I tend to believe him.

Just one more example of the mockery that is our justice system.
