The prosecutions bias is obvious and abundant. Ill show below why I say that here.
The prosecution is under tremendous pressure to win convictions and long-term prison sentences for our cowboys because if the cowboys get away with standing up to authority, the U.S. government itself will be embarrassed by its...
