I was horrified the first time I heard about the Curtis Flowers case, years ago.  Tonight I am horrified again listening to the 60 Minutes broadcast again about that case.  It is a case about an innocent black man in Mississippi who was tried by a good ole boy, ignorant, racist prosecutor 6 times for murders he did not commit.

Another case of prosecutor misconduct.  There are far, far too many! I was a prosecutor for five years, and this is not rocket science: THE JOB OF A PROSECUTOR IS TO BE FAIR. Excerpts from the Article: The Supreme Court of Washington held a prosecutor committed flagrant and ill-intentioned misconduct by framing a defendant’s prosecution as representative of the war on drugs.
