State's Attorney's Protest
Seriously, after so much BS coming down our way by over zealous political hacks in that office looking to make a name for themselves? The fact that CPD had to embarrass and humiliate Felony Review to show some consistency in charging people who attack off duty cops as they do when cops are allegedly the attackers? Or a Simple Battery case becoming a Felony for no good reason? Or various downgrades to preserve the conviction rate?
We're sure we'll hear from some offended ASA's who'll claim that they go out of their way to get charges approved for shaky cases all the time. Or that the political winds blow ill from time to time and their hands are tied. We'll take those hits for now. But that traffic flows both ways. And we have a feeling we know who'll win that one.
