#3 For second if a prosecutor or cops knowingly uses false evidence they should serve the time instead of the accused. I don't care if you *know* the perp is dirty you just can't do that.

#6 Hell, you could make a case that it started with Marbury vs. Madison and "judicial review".

But it's been happening for generations, and the clutch of decisions in mid-2015 is what finally convinced me that the rules were not even going to be a figleaf anymore.
