No way to treat a prosecutor

by Walter Olson on August 6, 2008

“Find out where he lives, find out where his kids go to school,” said former (two-term) Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel, according to FoxNews.com’s report of a tape of remarks made by Gravel to a Washington, D.C. crowd last week. (“Former Presidential Candidate Urges Crowd to Stalk Federal Prosecutor”, Aug. 5)(via Taranto).

During the false rape prosecution of the three Duke Lacrosse players, even when it became abundantly clear to everyone that Mike Nifong was attempting to railroad the defendants, no one ever suggested anything more than he should be removed from the case and/or tried for illegally suppressing evidence. The concept that his family should be a target for his misdeeds was never mentioned by anyone. Mike Gravel may not be legally liable for his comments but he certainly is morally culpable. The fact that he is defending a terrorist sympathizer/enabler makes his comments all the more outrageous. He deserves to be publicly vilified by the MSM for his reprehensible statements but don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen.

Richard,

Is it at all surprising that the use of terrorist tactics to defend a terrorist seems a reasonable action to their supporters?
