The Continuing Threat and Disgrace of Political Prosecutions

Had enough yet? It's Scooter Libby, a rich, political elite and not you, you say? Not yet. Just wait.

This is how freedoms disappear. We've talked about this here before. When the prosecutor abandons his oath to seek justice but instead becomes an arm of a political party or institution ... no matter the persuasion ... liberty and justice for all is in jeopardy.

Tom Delay ... Martha Stewart ... the Duke Lacrosse team ... on and on ...

And don't forget Sandy Burglar. Oh, wait.

Via Dan Riehl, we have this comparison.

The Libby verdict is a disgrace. Americans remember that a that a badge doesn't always mean a good guy is wearing it. Or they better.
