Hey 2 bits –

“Now that's just not right. ALL citizens have the same inalienable rights.”

Uh huh . . . And just like everyone else, these two former Utah AG’s have the right to be tried, convicted, sentenced, and PUNISHED to the utmost extent of the law.

In a perfect world, all laws would be enforced equally.

But in reality, resources just don’t exist to enforce all a laws, all of the time, equally for everyone.

So law enforcement prioritizes according to the significance of the crime.

Thus murders take high precedence over shoplifting. And prosecuting the theft and fraud perpetrated by bald-faced lying, hypocritically venal AG’s should take precedence over prosecuting some kid who burglarizes a house.

If these former SYMBOLS of Utah Justice are not prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, then Utah is ill served.

Let the judicial process run its course before making judgments. Some want a fair trial only if it produces the outcome that supports their biases.

"They should still be accorded the respect that we all desire, and to not be publicly lynched by a mob mentality." Of course, unless we're talking about Obama. . .

It appears you are picking and choosing which posts to respond to. For the third time, why did you downplay their accusations as someone simply using a houseboat? Have you read the charges yet? Do you still believe felonies are no big deal?

In Utah the majority of voters, the faux news watchers, are convinced that these two are innocent while Obama should be sued and impeached.
There are mountains of evidence that these two are guilty while there isn't a bit of evidence that Obama is any of the things the repubs claim he is.
