- Excerpt from 1933 speech by Major General Smedley Butler USMC.
“I suspect I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all members of military profession I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed orders of higher ups. I could have given Al Capone a few hints.
Best he did was operate on three districts. I operated on three continents.”
In all three counties the 12th circuit state attorneys office consistently appears demonstrating itself to operate like racketeers. Arrogant ,Incompetent , Reckless ,Vindictive /these adjectives should not be pre qualifications for state attorney in Sarasota, Manatee and Desoto counties.
Yet the policies and actions made by our state attorneys office shows a unAmerican culture of mean spirited us against them mentality. Results further show a pattern of vengeful and unbalanced prosecution. One that is unwilling to cooperate in seeking the truth. It is a office of personnel that seems much more interested in the convenience of coercing pleas than upholding dignity of law.
Role of prosecutor should NEVER be to condone and encourage the malicious criminal activity of uniform law enforcement. Prosecutors should NEVER ignore truth to ensure a favorable outcome for themselves .Unfortunate this does happen . State attorneys zealously enjoy qualified immunity.
So it is likely the horrible errors and common miscarriages of justice the 12th circuit state attorneys office has become known for, will perhaps continue unhindered.
And because both current candidates for the office have built their resumes out of what appears as thug prosecutors of injustice, Neither candidate is worthy of endorsement.
