Now prosecute the bastards for breaking federal law

A lot of this crap would stop if that happened at all, let alone more often(which it should be).
A federal judge rejected prosecutors’ request Tuesday to reconsider her dismissal of the case against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, his two sons and friend Ryan Payne.

U.S. District Judge Gloria M. Navarro dismissed conspiracy charges against the four men on Jan. 8 after finding that prosecutors had acted “with prejudice” throughout the trial, The Oregonian reported. Federal prosecutors violated federal law and failed to share evidence favorable to the defendants case with the court.
It's good this was thrown out.  It's bad that, like the prosecutors in the Ted Stevens case, these bastards are getting away with it.

Prosecutors requested the court grant another trial against the Bundys and Payne, calling the missteps and violations throughout the trial “inadvertent.”
Bullshit.  You clowns did it deliberately.
“The Brady violations found by the court are regrettable and benefit no one,” Nevada’s Acting U.S. Attorney Steven Myhre wrote in a legal brief, according to The Oregonian. “But because the government neither flagrantly violated nor recklessly disregarded its obligations, the appropriate remedy for such violations is a new trial.”
Translation: "We regret being caught, and not being able to get a conviction by illegal means.  Please let us try again."

Tar, feathers.  Liberal application thereof.
