So the news tells us that coward Jay Hileman has been frightened away from prosecuting a case.
Every day we ask victims and ordinary citizens to come to court and testify. The criminals know who the witnesses against them are and where they live. They don't have special protection. Many live in violent slums, gang ridden housing projects or out in the country far from help.
We expect out Police Officers to go out day after day on predictable patrol routes, wearing uniforms.
For a prosecutor to give in to the fear from which victims, witnesses, and Police Officers CANNOT "withdraw" is shameful.
" Security concerns"? Every old lady in every bad neighbourhood in the country has "security concerns" you cannot imagine, Mr. $100, 000 man in a suit.
This is almost worse than Nifong.
