The Senator Ted Stevens case represented all the things that have come to embody the American Justice System as of late. Unjust arrest. False accusations, false charges. Governmental overreach. Prosecutorial overreach. Civil Right violations. Guilty until proven innocent. The threat of jail or prison. The deck stacked against the defendant – even if the defendant is a Senator. Everyone must fight against an unjust system. There is now injustice; oppression, a foul blow awaiting you at every turn.
REally, this is all the judge’s fault. They always let the prosecutors get away with this shit.

Rob Cary: Laws still lacking to prevent what happened to Sen. Ted Stevens (“Six years ago this month, I witnessed a miscarriage of justice in a federal courtroom in Washington, D.C. Relying upon star witness Bill Allen, who was testifying in exchange for freedom for himself and his children and for the opportunity to sell his Alaska company for hundreds of millions of dollars, federal prosecutors charged U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens with making false statements on Senate disclosure forms.”) (Rob Cary is a partner with Williams & Connolly LLP in Washington, D.C., one of Sen. Stevens’ lead lawyers and the author of the new book “Not Guilty: The Unlawful Prosecution of U.S. Senator Ted Stevens” (NACDL Press/Thomson Reuters), available for purchase via http://www.nacdl.org/nacdlpress.)
