Anyone who thinks prosecutors are to be trusted is out of your mind. I have NEVER met one that had an ounce of honesty or ethics. It is extremely rare for any court actually to go after a prosecutor. Perhaps one in a billion. They are on the same team to uphold their 99% conviction rate. Back in 2017, a prosecutor was caught red-handed listening to conversations of a defendant and their lawyer. They do that all the time. Even the New York Times published “Rampant Prosecutorial Misconduct” which was a shock that they acknowledged anything.
In a mafia case, the defendant asked for his phone call recordings in prison. They sent him those of the rat who would testify against him. There, he was on the phone with the prosecutor who was asking him to testify against someone else. He told the prosecutor he didn’t know that guy. The prosecutor said no problem; after he preps him, he will know him like his brother. He then submitted the tapes to Judge Kaplan in New York, demanding an investigation. Kaplan said that was a violation for a different case and refused to allow the tapes to be heard by the jury.
There was a 23-year-old kid charged with a conspiracy for a drug murder, and his crime was someone asked where some guy was, and he pointed over there. He wanted to go to trial, and the prosecutor moved for the death penalty because they never got on in NYC. This list goes on and on.
Prosecutors abuse the system to win unjust convictions ALL THE TIME. There is the case of JOSEPH SALVATIwhere the Boston jury awarded $102 million because the prosecutors KNEW they were convicting the wrong person. Anyone working for the government who does this sort of thing should be imprisoned. After all, they violate the civil rights of an individual and remain immune from criminal prosecution.
There is the case of Jack McCullough sentenced to life in prison in 1957, who was finally released in 2016. One Judge, U.S. District Judge Leigh Martin May, ruled that the SEC courts established by Roosevelt were unconstitutional. The government just ignored the ruling.
Then there was Edwin Paul Wilson (1928 – 2012), a former CIA and U.S. Naval Intelligence officer who was convicted in 1983 of illegally selling weapons to Libya. When one agency caught him, the CIA denied he worked for them. He was tried and convicted. His daughter fought to get documents to prove he worked for the government, which they denied. What they did to Wilson should give anyone pause as to why they would work for the government.
You can tell Wilson was innocent because they kept him in solitary confinement – the ultimate torture. They did that to prevent him from having free communications outside the prison.
It was later proven that the United States Department of Justice and the CIA had covered up evidence in the case. Wilson’s convictions were overturned in 2003, and he was freed the following year.
Wilson filed a civil suit against seven former federal prosecutors, two of whom are now federal judges and a past executive director of the CIA. On March 29th, 2007, U.S. District Judge Lee Rosenthal dismissed his case on the grounds that all eight had immunity covering their actions.
Nobody will hold prosecutors accountable, and most judges are former prosecutors, so good luck with pleading your case. There is not a vein of morality in most of these people. Even an honest judge is just overruled by the corrupt courts of appeal. When you stare into the eyes of a prosecutor or most judges, all you see is the coldness of evil stripped of all human emotion. They lose all humanity in order to do the job.
The Supreme Court has unleashed the total destruction of the Constitution upon all of us, and there is a growing call to acknowledge and address an epidemic of prosecutorial misconduct in the United States, but nobody will listen. The case was Imbler v. Pachtman, and its perverse holding is uncivilized in any democratic state, for it is the decision of a totalitarian regime.
History repeats because those in power will always act in their own self-interest. Nothing has changed since Thrasymachus warned Socrates, whom they sentenced to death, and Palto fled Athens, saying he would not allow a second crime against Philosophy.
There can be no justice when prosecutors are beyond responsibility for their deliberate actions. That is because ONLY the government can bring a criminal action, and they will NEVER prosecute their own. They would take the stand and state they were told to deny the Constitution and that they were only following orders.
