Jail. Now.

There is only one way to stop this sort of crap:

A federal judge dismissed all charges against rancher Cliven Bundy, his two sons and another man on Monday.

U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro cited "flagrant prosecutorial misconduct" in her decision to dismiss all charges against the Nevada rancher and three others.

Not only must Bundy and his sons (and the third man) be fully compensated for all of their economic losses, including their attorneys fees, the prosecutor and everyone involved in it under his direction must be imprisoned for the full term of years sought by them against Bundy.

This wasn't a mistake -- it was a clear and documented intentional act and fraud upon not only the court but upon the defendants and every citizen of the United States.

It must be punished, and the only appropriate punishment is for the prosecutors to face exactly the same sanction they intended to impose through their misconduct.

If Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump don't do it then you know, as a matter of actual fact, that they'd just as soon screw you and it is only through blind luck through drawing what appears to be one not-corrupt judge that Bundy and his family didn't get railroaded straight into prison.

Worse is that without prosecution and prison for everyone involved there is absolutely no deterrent preventing the FBI from doing it again to them -- or to you.
