Do You Recognize

Your country anymore? Sounds more like the old USSR or several current third world countries recently in the news.
Detroit 'Sleeper Cell' Prosecutor Faces Probe: "It is a highly unusual case. No charges have been brought and many details remain secret, but information in public documents and testimony in U.S. District Court in Detroit suggest an effort by federal prosecutors and important witnesses to mislead defense lawyers and deceive the jury. U.S. District Judge Gerald E. Rosen said the government acted 'outside the Constitution.'

Rosen and Justice Department investigators concluded last year that the prosecution stuck doggedly to its theory in defiance of plausible explanations and advice from other U.S. government officials. Records suggest prosecutors withheld evidence that cast doubt on their conclusions, even when ordered by superiors to deliver documents to the defense."
Makes me wonder how many innocent people are in jail. This isn't the first time and I doubt if it will be the last.
