A Giant (Belated) Welcome to the Blogosphere

to the Bad Prosecutors Blog, which is virtually an echo of the perspective we take here, except the authors of this particular blog are themselves "good" prosecutors dedicated to shining the light on their "bad" prosecutors who pit up their profession and make the jobs of good prosecutors that much harder, not to mention their horrific effect on our justice system and the perceived legitimacy of our laws. Well, here, let's let them describe themselves:

This Blog is published by the Bennett Law Firm with Sherri Katz and Bob Bennett being principal contributors. For over thirty years, the firm has been involved in criminal, civil, and administrative investigations. Both Sherri Katz and Bob Bennett have served in the United States Attorney's Office for the Western District of Texas. They consider themselves to be "good" prosecutors with experience in both state district attorneys offices and federal prosecutors with the United States Attorney's Office. When we see bad prosecutors or prosecutors engaged in bad acts, we see a need to speak out and let the world know of our protestations and anger. Maybe you feel the same? If so, we hope you will share with us and others what bad prosecutors and bad prosecutorial acts the world needs to know about. Thru notoriety, recusals, and even disbarments, we hope to bring to justice to what some bad prosecutors do.

They don't post enough, but what they've posted lately is terrific--a list of the top ten worst prosecutors, with the US AG at the top and working in the Duke lacrosse guy, the Genarlow Wilson guy, the Tulia, TX guy, the "John Grisham wrote a whole book about how I wanted to kill an innocent man" guy, jeez, I'm getting nauseous just lumping all these guys together. They're a very needed voice in corrections sentencing, so maybe if enough of us go give them hits, it'll encourage them to do more and more often. So what are you waiting for?
