Justice should be the goal, not convictions; however, in an election year a district attorney will order everyone possible arrested and charged.

Absolutely ! (what cal said) In the lawless / anti-justice domain of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land, condemnation of the innocent is a powerful politically correct false flag tool. By way of example, the public will never know if the Rolling Stone's cover boy is guilty of anything. He, along with government agents and others (in a government sponsored drill) were wearing identical packs in the immediate vicinity of the bombing; And, why did the government allow him to fly to other countries based on aliases ?). Further, condemnation of the lawfully innocent occurs every time a conviction is threatened or occurs over the subjects compelled compliance, licensing and victimless crimes.

This used to be a common theme in the American justice system. Now, everyone is guilty and must prove their innocence instead of the other way around.
