In a plea bargain the prosecutor is NOT the judge and jury, prosecutors CANNOT " can do whatever the fuk they want" The defendant does not have to agree to a plea bargain and can go to trial if they wish, they have the right to appeal the verdict, and I would also add that well over ...[text shortened]... me your moral outrage. If you're looking for perfect justice you won't find it on this planet.😲
i post examples of how prosecutors have too much power and how it affects the american system, how there are real problems with how they are elected, how they conduct business, how they have too little oversight and how they are rarely (if ever) punished for misconduct.
I then make a hyperbolic statement that anyone but the most brain dead would know not to take literally and what do you do?
You take it literally.
Yes, you are right, prosecutors cannot actually do whatever the fuk they want. They can't take a dump on the judge's desk. they cannot prosecute naked. They cannot conjure a unicorn in court.
Of course, no crap post would be complete without some logical fallacies.
"The justice systems in America, Europe, Canada, Australia and most of the developed world, while not perfect, do work reasonably well and get it right most of the time."
Faced with a problem, your response is to say the system overall works well enough. I am not talking about the system overall, i am talking about a specific problem. A problem that can be fixed so that well enough becomes better.
