I am not denying that there are injustices done in our courts systems. I have been a victim myself. The bottom line is the bottom line. If they can get you to plead to a lesser charge with no incarceration (which is the most likely result) they win on prosecution and incarceration costs. Most accused jump at the chance because they know they are guilty. Don't break the law and chances are you don't have to worry about it.Because prosecutors often stack charges in such a way that defendants can be sentenced as repeat offenders even if that defendant has no prior convictions. This is done during the pre-trial phase to encourage defendants to accept plea deals regardless of their innocence or guilt. In order to avoid the possibility of spending decades in prison for a crime they may or may not have committed, defendants plea out and prosecutors notch another "conviction" on their resumes.By their own choice. They could have had a jury trial but they plead out.
I can believe that this is a real thing. It is based upon the idea of liberal courts being staffed by lazy and uncaring lawyers.
I have seen it done to minority Conservatives, specifically dinesh d'souza.
UNLESS, you are part of a targeted group, like conservatives or proud boys, and then that system can be used to fuck you up good.
Giving dems the option of abusing power, and they will abuse it, sooner or later.
And more and more.
