This Just In (NOT)

From our “Clippings From The Editing Room Floor” dept.”, comes this face-palming story that begins:

“The third trial of Cliven Bundy has ended in a mistrial. The prosecution failed to turn over documents that would have helped the defense.”

Put more bluntly:

"The trial of Nevada rancher and leader of the Sagebrush Rebellion, Cliven Bundy, his two sons and a co-defendant ended yesterday in a mistrial. Why? Because the government had lied out of its ass to the judge and hidden evidence that would have significantly aided the defense. In other words, in a legal system that has reframed “adversarial” to mean “win at any cost”, the prosecutors decided to put Bundy away and they decided that a little perjury was no big deal. It was, as they say, a day ending in “y.”

Who wouldda/couldda thunk it!? America’s pristine, “Rule of Law-Justice for All” Judicial System, featuring officers, agents, prosecutors and institutionalized bureaucrats of the “Deep State” Bowling Team would play “Hide The Weeny” with exculpatory evidence? Say it isn’t so, AG Jeff! (Sarc: OFF) At least we can rejoice Presiding Robe, U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro, still maintained a firm grip on jurisprudence: “The failure to turn over such evidence violates due process.”

And here's the rest of the story...
