    There may be an exception here since they were sworn LEOs.
    Considering the state is making a decision that can ruins someones life based off of what their employee does, I think the changes the situation. They're the ones putting people in prison wrongly and they need to be held accountable. And they need to hold their own accountable. Crooked cops and prosecutors who play God with peoples lives need to be in prison for life without parole or face the death penalty. The state is negligent in how they handle their subordinates.

    They worked for the city. The City of Cleveland.

    You know what I mean. The government presiding over the issue needs to take responsibility.

    Not just governments. Organizations. I go with most people being basically good but organizations aren't.

    Heres how Chicago rolls after a softball Jury gives a gang leader $16 m to rebuild and re arm his gang after a wrongful conviction verdict, which no doubt was a correct verdict until the sheisters smelled money.
