The sunny Southern California county with a population surpassing that of nearly half the states has a Republican district attorney, Tony Rackauckas, and a big problem on its hands: Its entire prosecutorial apparatus — all 250 lawyers in the district attorney’s office — have been disqualified from participation in a high-profile capital-murder case following revelations that the office colluded with the Orange County sheriff’s department to systematically suppress potentially exculpatory evidence in at least three dozen cases, committing what legal scholars have characterized as perjury and obstruction of justice in the process.


No surprise here. Having had the experience of going through the system in Orange County I know the public defenders office trades off cases with the DA to lighten their caseload. Oh well.

Who cares right?

Sounds like they have all gone on a road trip in a hand basket. Is there no punishment for perjury at all any more?

These are just the people that got caught. I imagine this is far from the only place where this happens.

Perjury? Is that all you took out of that?

They suppressed this: en.wikipedia.org... Then yeah, they purged themselves by telling a judge otherwise.

Which is more damaging to a human life? Sending one to jail or lying to a judge? An innocents persons life will be changed irrevocably by being locked up with animals when they did nothing wrong. Lying to a judge won't even hurt his or her feelings.

The system and its operatives are an existential threat to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Society is breaking down.

Enough of this mockery. Eliminate 80% of laws and 80% of LEOs as a start.

This totally relates to the discussion on the "Killer tries to kill again" thread, this is why you cant trust the sytem enough to do the death penalty.

Wow. Kudos to the judge for actually holding these scumbags responsible for violating due process for once. Though, unfortunately, this is just another pebble in the growing mountain of police and prosecutor violations across the country.

My job requires me to interact with federal agents, and I even had to travel to Riverside once in order to do work on a RICO case involving the Mexican Mafia. During that trip, I met with an AUSA (Assistant U.S. Attorney) in L.A. (along with other attorneys and agents), and they flat out told me, point blank, about the corruption and bribery and everything else that happens with some of the LEOs and attorneys in the area.

Needless to say, I wasn't surprised, but I was kind of shocked that they'd tell someone they just met about all of this.

This is why I usually say that there's nothing wrong with our legal system, it's the people who supply the bodies in the chairs that make it broken and reprehensible.

There was a thread about this very subject a few months back. It was a court case that determined prosecutors have no legal obligation to disclose exculpatory evidence that they have. So long as the prosecutor chooses to not make it part of their case (and why would they? they would then lose) they don't have to reveal it to the defense.
