Edit: On Monday morning, KLIF had on "former federal prosecutor" Fred Teece who said "the defense didn't do a damn thing in the case" and, in fact, only made if more likely that she would have got convicted. Moreover, any competent defense lawyer could have obtained an acquittal "in six minutes."  When he was asked by the host why the prosecutor would try the case in the first place, he said. "You've got to because you've got a dead three year old girl. You take a shot of sake, scream 'Bonzi", and do your best."

That is the greatest threat to our system: Reckless prosecutors who pursue baseless cases because they are scared of the political fallout from doing the right thing.
