The never ending public display of police incompetence is absolutely outrageous and I cannot, for the life of me, understand why the people in Greece take it like good sheep? There should be petitions circulating to eliminate the GPD immediately, and another to create a "Village" in the 3rd Ward so we can elect our own leaders, take care of our own problems, and get rid of the stagnant control they have over the town. All we need is a 1 square mile of space minimum for a village in NYS and at least 1000 residents in the village.

So if the DA held that information/evidence isn't that prosecutorial misconduct? Isn't there a penalty for that?
That could nullify the whole trial.

To 10:49PM ~~ I'm not sure if there is such a thing as prosecutorial misconduct, but I do know there is obstruction of justice. Who does the DA have to answer to? Maggie??

I told you this was coming last week!
NEXT QUESTION-
Why did Fat Vinny tow Joseph's vehicle from the crash? WHO called Vinny? Who did Vinny owe a favor to? A RPD boss perhaps?

Keep watching folks, the Green Machine ain't worth a damn at coverups. There are a lot of retired cops in the know, and cops stick together.

Found this definition online and it might be what they are after.

"In jurisprudence, prosecutorial misconduct is a procedural defense; via which, a defendant may argue that they should not be held criminally liable for actions which may have broken the law, because the prosecution acted in an "inappropriate" or "unfair" manner. Such arguments may involve allegations that the prosecution withheld evidence or knowingly permitted false testimony. This is similar to selective prosecution."

To 8:45PM ~~ That reminds me of the prosecution in the Cervini case!
