So if you’ve managed to find this tiny little blog, I’ll assume you’re already familiar with Eric Holder’s Justice Department deciding not to prosecute those black panther bums at that Philly voting spot, and, recently their decision not to proceed with deportation procedures against a large number of illegal aliens. Holder and Obama are always good for some boos from our side, but,……
Which is the bigger problem: Eric Holder the man, or the “accepted” notion of prosecutorial discretion?
Do you want a Justice Department, a president, an attorney general, or a local D.A. who has pretty much full authority to decide whom to prosecute and whom not to prosecute?
Would you want to give anyone that kind of power, except yourself? Would you even feel comfortable with giving that kind of power to Mike Vanderboegh? To David Codrea? To Eric Stinnet? To Peter White?
Or this guy?
UPDATE: See the next part in this series for more on this issue including a proposal to address the problem.
