What's up with all these Perry Mason style Grand Jury hearings being used to acquit police officers? The latest case in New York is just nuts, where the accused officer was even allowed to testify, just like in the old Perry Mason show. How are these Prosecutors allowing any defense at all during the hearing, let alone 2 hours of testimony by the accused without cross-examination (as in the Ferguson case)? The cops are not being acquitted because of following the process. They are being acquitted because the Prosecutors are gaming the system to support the accused officers. If a regular citizen is pulled up in front of a grand jury, they cannot present a case, they cannot challenge the presented evidence and they certainly don't get to testify for two hours without cross-examination. Looks like it's time for other accused people to demand equal protection under the law, for equal treatment to these officers are getting during Grand Jury trails.
