Holy Non-Objective Law, Batman!

I am going to try to find articles out there which actually get the issue right, unlike the typical blind elephant vs. blind donkey.

The Wall Street Journal today published an article about how aggressive prosecutors plus vague statutes leads to a no-win situation for businessmen.  The money quote is:

“…the federal prosecutor’s ability to indict the proverbial ham sandwich readily leads to guilty findings without appellate review.”

It’s all well and good, unless you are a supplier, employee, partner, customer, or investor in the company being persecuted.  Or any other company tha may be persecuted in the future.

Kudos to the WSJ for publishing this expose!
