Your judicial system is broken. So many people go to jail because someone pointed the finger at them. They dont even get the chance to defend themselves in an evidence based trial because your lawyers got too much on their f_____g desk? And people in the states wonder why all prisons are spilling. LOL! Same shit happened a couple hundred years back in the european dark ages and your society is willingly going straight back there. Your president is the living example for the degeneration of american citizens.

Prosecutors have so much power because you no longer have a common law system. The system now is maritime/admiralty which is civil in nature and about debt collection. If a prosecutor does not get a conviction he has to pay for the case. This is why they have a 99 percent conviction rate. If only 15 percent of the people went to trial it would collapse the system. SO they threaten you with crazy amounts of time to plead out, If you do not plead out they will railroad you in a kangaroo court.

I just learned about the issue at around 7:00 from an IamA on Reddit by a supposed convicted rapist, who claimed to have stalked two women, grabbed their hands, and dragged them to his truck to rape them at knifepoint. I didn’t see his proof myself, but if he was telling the truth, consider that he said he made a deal with a prosecutor to get 6 years in a mental health facility and only two years in jail. He didn’t seem sorry for his violent crimes and still saw himself as a victim. He thought his victims had a better life than him because they had money and husbands. In fact, he even admitted eventually that he raped them not because of their physical appearance so much as the fact he felt that they were „better“ than him and knew it. He’s been put for 10 years now, which means he is now off the sex offenders registry. Because he agreed to subvert the American justice system in a back room deal with a prosecutor? He said his victims vehemently opposed his release when they were notified. He seemed to be saying this derisively, like „stupid silly women“, but can you imagine the terror and anger these women were feeling? Where is the justice in a violent rapist getting six years of tax-paid psychological care (when people who actually want to change in a rehab center or with therapy need to pay exorbitant amounts of money and struggle to get insurance coverage) Imagine how that rape victim must have felt when her rapist (so she must have thought) was given a mere 2 years, in exchange for not having to go through a trial, in which he would be publicly forced to answer for his crimes. And also consider that the fucking court didn’t even bother to check if the DNA evidence matched that man before sending him to prison! Meanwhile the real rapist goes free and maybe raped another person. If he’s found this time, no big deal, cause he can just make a deal with a prosecutor and get free food and entertainment for a few years. Maybe free therapy as well. Did I get anything wrong? Please tell me if so, because I really hope the American justice system is not like this. Sorry for English, it’s not my mother tongue.

Trial by ambush is really the fault of the public defender. The DA's job is to represent the state's case as best as possible. One part of this is giving the defender only that evidence which is asked for. The defender has the job of demanding such evidence during discovery, and if he doesn't raise an objection to evidence which only shows up on the day of the trial, and have it thrown out, he really isn't doing his job right. Incidentally, also, if he doesn't raise an objection at that moment, the lack thereof may be a sticking point against an appellate lawyer who might want to use the fact to overturn a verdict. That being said, public defenders aren't paid nearly as much as DAs, so it's expected to see much better lawyers on the states side. As to the race issue.. if they call you up, show up. I was once called up to potentially serve on a jury for a very major drug case. 180 people were called up to potentially serve on as 12 jurors and 6 alternates, which is about what you might expect for a major, violent felony like murder or forcible rape... not a single black person was in attendance. The only ethic minority was a Puerto Rican guy whom the defense probably had eliminated in the first round, as he was a federal marshal. This was in a county where juries are selected by a lottery of registered voters. Despite having a more or less average percentage of black and Hispanic folks in the county, there was exceptionally poor voter registration among those groups, meaning that it was nigh impossible to get one on a jury. The moral of my story is, if you want to make a change, you have to actually participate in the system.

It's a lesson we've been taught since the count of monte cristo.

When John Oliver hits on something that you, the viewer, actually know something about, as I do as a prosecutor for the past 28 years, you realize that this really is just a comedy show. It purports to give actual facts in between the gags, but the reality is that the "facts" are just set-ups for the punchline. The trouble is when people take these comedy "news" shows as the truth.

We, here in Los Angeles Cunty, used to have a stellar District Attorney, Vincent Bugliosi. He was the most meticulous district attorney that the County ever had, and probably ever will have.He is most remembered for his successful prosecution of the Manson family for their brutal murders. Mr. Manson has written sevreal books, all of which are very readable and absolutely full of common sense. Look at his books, Mr. Oliver, and enjoy.

This is why I want to be a criminal defense attorney and not a prosecutor. The deck is stacked against me, I know, but if I can help a few innocent people get out of doing time (or help them do less time), I will consider the venture a success. However, being an attorney is not my final goal. Hopefully, I will be able to get in the Senate or the House one day and then I'll do my best to nip this issue in the bud once and for all. Wish me luck (for the sake of these poor, innocent people).

I would argue that "the prosecutors will decide" is not an issue, or, better said, not the issue. Someone has to decide. The election of prosecutors and judges in the US, and, from what i understood, a political control on the prosecutors does not sound like the best of recipes. I prefer the system where you are trained to become a prosecutor/judge, and are both independent from the other democratic powers, as to offer a safeguard against outside pressure. You'd want someone with this amount of power to be subjected, before reaching this position, to all kinds of tests. Campaining is for politicians.

Well, it would help if they required actual repercussions of prosecutors abusing their power. Require the State or DA's office pays the victim a heavy time-based restitution for screwing with an innocent's life. The 'win' culture was born out of their quasi-immunity.
