    This has not been a good century for AGs.

    Somewhere, Janet Reno kicks back with a cigar and smiles.

    Give me a break.

    Law enforcement agencies, like the ATF, work with prosecutors on a daily basis. They didn't know how prosecutors would react to an operation like this? They didn't know they were facing "weak laws"?

    You know, when you have one good reason for why something got fucked up, you just give that reason. You don't need a whole bunch of explanations.

    Did you read the article I linked? Because it contains two allegations of how the prosecutor was unwilling to press charges.

    I honestly don't know how anybody can read that article and not think Issa is a quacking loon.

    And to think, this is 2012, not 1972.

    At least for some of us.

    So, why implement the program if prosecutors aren't on board?

    Did they think they wouldn't need the support of prosecutors?

    That's how our system works. Pretty stupid plan if you don't have the buy in of prosecutors.

    Issa: Liar, insurance fraudster, car thief, arsonist.


    He must have been happy the Stolen Valor thing went down or else he probably could have been charged under it.

    Balls itched in 1972 and they itch in 2012. I'm not getting your point.
