Random Prosecutor News


“In 1984, I was 33 years old. I was arrogant, judgmental, narcissistic and very full of myself. I was not as interested in justice as I was in winning. To borrow a phrase from Al Pacino in the movie And Justice for All, ‘Winning became everything.’

“After the death verdict in the Ford trial, I went out with others and celebrated with a few rounds of drinks. That’s sick. I had been entrusted with the duty to seek the death of a fellow human being, a very solemn task that certainly did not warrant any ‘celebration.’ “

In my opinion this prosecutor should be imprisoned for an equal amount of time. We need to start sending strong messages to law enforcement and over zealous prosecutors. Their transgressions are greater because of the trust we put in them and when they slip up we should put them away.

“A clear conscience is the sure sign of a bad memory.” ― Mark Twain.

It looks like Mr. Stroud is working towards reconciling this account on his balance sheet. I hope him the best. I would not want to go to sleep at night with the regret of this man. He is obviously suffering both physically and mentally.

Justice and truth are a two edged sword which many lawyers tend to compromise. The problem is being party to any injustice will reap its own reward, whether we think so or not.

When judgement day arrives, I don't think God will pronounce me not guilty by reason of ambition or my oath of office.
