They may have been fired as a result of their actions, but no one really served or did time for beating or taking someone’s life.

There is no judicial oversight about how the case is going to be presented. So this means the defense attorney who is against the prosecutor has no idea of what is going on. Meaning, they do not know what is going to be presented. They do not know what witnesses are going…
