Guys, I agree that Heymann is a complete douche and probably needs to be removed from his position. However, that doesn't mean that all lawyers, judges, prosecutor, etc. is out to screw everyone over. These types of comments and beliefs are exactly the reason that the US is more divided than ever before.
Let's focus on Heymann and if you want to link to some hard facts of other prosecutor misconduct that's great too but let's be a little more realistic with our comments.
In all fairness I did say it just makes me wonder not that I'm sure that's the reason. As for being too cynical that may be true but look at all the stories you write and tell me that I'm not justified in being a cynic.

You don't get to decide that you aren't going to follow a law because YOU think it's wrong. You work the system but until the day the law is stricken from the books it's still a law. If everyone just decided to ignore the laws that they feel are unjust there would be complete disorder. It would be more fun but you can't have a society with disorder.
Ninja, you keep talking poorly about the US like it's the only country that this happens in. Wake up. Money makes the courts go round in every country. Tell me about the shining beacon of justice and legality that is the court system of Brazil. Oh wait, it's not. It's more corrupt than the US system. Tell me how the UK is so much better than the US. Oh wait, it's not especially if you're someone famous. Greece, the cradle of democracy? Nope not even close.
I like bashing the US as much as anyone but I've actually lived in several other countries and have visited many, many more so I have some real comparisons other than reading a website. I've dealt with court systems around the world. The US isn't perfect but there are a lot of other countries in the world that aren't close to being as free as the US even with the corruption of our democracy.
