    and it has nothing to do with de jure benefits huge tax payers get for paying 1000 times more taxes than the average voter.

    do you know what the average income tax bill is in the USA?
    I also deny that the system is broken, the USA criminal justice system is the envy of the world. not perfect but far better than just about any other system. especially at the federal level

    And what extent would you consider it relevant.

    Our justice system has a backlog of cases longer than a man can see and a bankroll of costs larger than the GDP of most small countries. We've become an overly-litigious society where our legal system is looked on like the lottery; a quick way to get rich. We've traded legal knowledge for ambulance chasers and Twinkie defenses. Our legal system is one in which a thief can fall through a skylight, hurt himself when he lands, and successfully sue the owner of the home he tried to rob.

    You're right, our legal system isn't broken. It's burning.

    that's the tort law and civil docket not the criminal docket we were first talking about. and what party is the party that represents most plaintiff's attorneys?

    not the GOP

    but lets get back to what I was actually talking about-the criminal system because that is what the OP is about.

    Envy of the world? What do you base that on?

    Enforcing the law against rich offenders is "class warfare." And we can't have that, now can we?

    are you trying to derail the thread with this sort of nonsense?

    I'll try not to read too much into the fact that you didn't answer the question.

    And I was attempting to inject a little humor into the conversation, which seems to have gotten lost on you.

    Re: Felony charge dropped because it could affect wealth manager's job

    Turtle... I have a question. As an attorney, what do you think of the outcome of the situation described in the OP? Does it seem legit to you? Do you think that it was advantageous for the man charged to be wealthy? Do you think that the prosecutor did something unethical? I understand that you probably don't know all the details of the case... nor do any of us, but I'm curious as to your professional opinion.
