Local to Wa.: With “experts” like Prosecutor Mark Larson who frame the innocent it is no mystery that these type of prosecutors are stomping on the grave of good law.
Naturally King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg, along with his constant propaganda using victims of crimes has structured his office to protect such amoral “experts.” Prosecutors Mark Larson and Dan Satterberg have grown fat off abusing the rights of those accused of crimes.
They have grown fat, they are sleek; Yes, they surpass the deeds of the wicked; They do not plead the cause, The cause of the fatherless; Yet they prosper, And the right of the needy they do not defend. (Jeremiah 5:28)
At the rate these prosecutors are going they will not be able to repent of setting others up for crimes they could not have possibly committed. Sadly, as God just said, in terms of guilt these prosecutors are far more wicked than the criminals they put behind bars.
The dirty secret here is that what happened in this case happens every day in courtrooms all over the country. Judges and lawyers are desperate to seat juries, while potential jurors are desperate to avoid jury duty or to put their stamp upon the proceedings. As a result, the business of selecting jurors occurs with a sort of wink and a nod. Jurors are asked to put aside whatever preconceived notions they have about a case — or about justice generally, or about the defendant in particular — and so long as they say they will do so they are allowed to join a panel that determines, in some cases, who lives and who dies, and who goes to prison for 123 years to life.
