I cannot say this loud enough. If Aaron Swartz’s suicide was caused in any part by outrageous behavior by prosecutors than it is the result of the institutional mechanisms of the Justice Department that encourage, if not require, distasteful, unethical, and illegal prosecutorial strategies and tactics.
Right now the dickweeds in Washington are probably planning on forcing Ortiz out with the expectations that it will end the broo haha.
“Yes folks, this mean old lady was cray-cray. Now back to business as usual boys.”
Completely unfair to this woman.
And screw Kevin Cullen with a second hit piece against Ortiz today. His column sounds exactly like someone would write if they were favoring the status-quo. (As we all know Cullen was the tool used by slime ball FBI agent John Morris when he committed many crimes by exposing Whitey Bulger as an informant )
Keep an eye on David Boeri’s reports too. He’s all about being the feds valet.
Remember what they did and still are doing to John Connolly after their top echelon program was exposed? Find the best available patsy who just follows the party line and send them to the gallows.
Play it like a one-off then go back and have everyone continue doing the same thing.
Well sisters, I’m standing behind Carmen Ortiz and demanding the real problem be addressed. You heard me. I’m “demanding” this. Now let’s see what they do.
Anyway, hey Deval, you should make a call to the White House.
It should go something like this:
Secretary – “Oval Office”
Deval – “Hi, it’s me. Is he there?”
Secretary – “Oh sure D. How you been sugar? They treating you alright up there in Boston?”
Deval – “Yes they are Tonya. I mean I’m use to them, so ya know, I can deal with them.”
Secretary – “Good. Hold on honey. I’ll get him.”
Pres. – “D.P. my bro on the go, how’s it hanging?”
Deval – “Low to the ground as always Mr. President. Low to the ground”
Pres. – “Good, keep tellin’ yourself that. What’s up?”
Deva – “Well Sir, you know that attorney general job we talked about? Things are percolating here which could brew into a nice batch of public outcry over the Justice Department and their business as usual bullshit. Could be something to jump on and encourage.”
Pres – “Absolutely. Time to let the peeps know what The Man does. This could be the opportunity we’ve all been waiting for. You ready to come down here and turn Justice on its ass? We need to bust this thing open”
Deval – “You know it Mr. President. Let’s do this.”
cue the music
I like Ortiz’s husband getting his Irish up with the twitter. I get it. I totally get it.
Don’t worry about it dude. Fuck em! (not Swatz family, the press and others jumping on the bandwagon)
