    Tony Rackauckas is still blaming everyone else except himself and Sheriff Sandra Hutchens – still not a single indictment for their crimes, or any accountability for the millions spent to prosecute a lay-down case.

    Dekraai was always going to be found guilty (confessed) and sent away for life. Yet, the part of this long fiasco that will live on going forward is the DA and Sheriff’s ability to violate anyone’s constitutional rights, break the law with impunity, and nothing is done about it. JUSTICE? still waiting on that part of to happen. – http://www.ocregister.com/2017/09/24/in-search-of-the-truth-rather-than-headlines/

    “The OCDA fought for the death penalty because it is hard to fathom how anyone who has heard Dekraai’s chilling recorded confession immediately following his arrest would think that this evil person should get anything less than the death penalty”

    Then you shouldn’t have cheated.

  • Just imagine had the OCDA, & OCSD “He said that, without the misconduct of prosecutors, “I think it is extremely likely, perhaps even certain, that a jury of your peers would have convicted you, recommended I sentence you to death,” Goethals said.”

      Goethals absolutely rocks.

      I hang on to a morsel of faith in the system only because of jewels like him.

      May the good Lord be kind to he and his family.

    Too bad that former Orange County, California Asst. Chief Probation Officer that was caught shoplifting 8 times didn’t get Life in Prison, where she belongs.

    Ok. Dekraai got what he deserved. Prison life until the day he dies.

    Now what about the sworn county employees who violated the laws and ran roughshod over the US Constitution while working in jobs of public trust during the illegal informant scandals (yes, there were more than one).

    Do they have to answer before a judge for what they did? Or is “equality under the law” obsolete in America today? Does the law only apply to those without government connections?

    So how are we different from the old Soviet Union?
