    It is what good prosecutors do. Are you make an allegation of corruption or malfeasance on the part of the prosecutor?

    Perhaps an establishment Republican. Some call them Progressive Republicans. They are a dangerous to our liberties as any democrat.

    Why do you suffer from such a limited view?

    I have already posted why once. I might post it again if necessary.

    I also know that grand juries almost never decline to indict. It's not a system where evidence is challenged; it's almost always a mere formality. It certainly doesn't match the level of scrutiny of a full file.

    But hey, why talk about police brutality and injustices of the courts, when we can bitch about taxes?

    You have not seen the evidence. A grand jury did. Are you accusing the prosecutor of corruption? Or malfeasance?

    Or maybe you just don't feel like thinking.

    If you don't comply with their orders, they will use force. Whether or not they should have used five men and choked you is debatable.

    here in the USA?

    Not just in a dictatorship?

    Holy crap. We already have a police state.
    Also debatable.

    Yeah, they can do that anyway. Hence, the infamous saying that any prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich.
    Feelings. Not reason. Simply feelings. I suggest you find yourself a crying towel and go for it.

    You will be involved but I can count on you being on the wrong side.

    Where do you see tyranny in the video? You are irrational. It is a shame. It happens.
