This is what we want to see.

In the words of Attorney General Robert H. Jackson, (April 1, 1940): "Any prosecutor who risks his day-to-day professional name for fair dealing to build up statistics of success has a perverted sense of practical values, as well as defects of character. Whether one seeks promotion to a judgeship, as many prosecutors rightly do, or whether he returns to private practice, he can have no better asset than to have his profession recognize that his attitude toward those who feel his power has been dispassionate, reasonable and just."

Justice Jackson, of-course, also blasted political prosecutions; and unreasonable and unjust political prosecutions are under fire from the House Committee on the Judiciary.

The House Judiciary Committee is proceeding in investigating the Bush administration's political prosecutions releasing four letters yesterday.
