  The state's DAs say they want a probe of Mary Rain speeded up. Sounds like the wolves are gatherng.

DAs know that Rain will be used as exhibit A in this year's push for legislation creating a Prosecutorial Conduct Committee. Bill has plenty of support in legislature to hit back for Moreland Commission and to deter prosecutors from going after corrupt politicians. Rain really is the most unethical DA in the State, and if her conduct is not addressed by the grievance committee or Governor - hard to claim that current system can address prosecutorial misconduct. She needs to be "reined in".

Amusing reading Comments in the times. read the one by Janet Phonix... Duve brought the charges what four years ago.... Excuse me wingnut Rain went to the Grand Jury and brought the charges. Duve did an investigation and didnt react like an idiot and charge someone without evidence.

Excuse me mister retard...er I mean 8:21, an esteemed DA was brought in from Onondaga county to prosecute the case. The reason this well respected DA agreed to do so, is because in his expert opinion, there was sufficient evidence to warrant the prosecution. If you have a different opinion, feel free to post your credentials, so that we may have some perspective on your reproach of this exceptionally gifted prosecutor.

BTW...if the DA cartel wants to have any credibility, they should be demanding a probe of their most wicked member...AG Schneiderman. His treatment of Trump compared to his treatment of the Clinton foundation, makes him the most corrupt prosecutor in the state.

9:01 Fitzpatrick can be criticized for his role, but SLC elected a DA to make decisions and she had already unethically campaigned on a promise to prosecute. In any event, Rain is not under investigation for her poor judgment in prosecuting Hillary. The new issue is her failure to disclose exculpatory evidence and lying to the court by originally claiming she did not know about the witness. Fitzpatrick was not involved in that or the other ethics charges already pending.
Her incompetence is a matter for voters, but ethics charges are matters for the Court and Grievance committee.

7:48, I made it very clear that Fitzpatrick can be criticized. I simply asked for your credentials, so that we can understand why we should take your opinion on the matter and why Fitzpatrick and Rain were so Terribly wrong for prosecuting the case.

BTW...Most politicians don't honor their campaign promises and if Mary Rain is as devilish of a fiend as you say she is, there is no reason why she would honor hers. Clearly, she put the murderer on trial because she, along with another expert, competent, exemplary, prosecutor from Onondaga Country, believed they were doing the right thing.

And exculpatory, like reasonable doubt, is subjective.

9:33 If you read my prior message again you will realize that the unethical action was promising that she would prosecute a case. This happened before she had an opportunity to review the evidence or consult with Fitzpatrick. The decision to prosecute is a question of judgment not ethics.
The evidence she withheld however was unquestionably exculpatory. A witness (Gregory Brown) specifically claimed to have witnessed another person (John Jones) following the victim. Rains even admitted it was exculpatory, but claimed she didn't turn the evidence over because the witness was not credible. Unfortunately for her the law is very clear that the DA doesn't get to male that decision, and the Judge ruled she had acted improperly.
In case you didn't realize it, DA Fitzpatrick is a leader, and on the executive committee, of the DA association that outlined the accusations and requested quick action. Don't think he was happy about being dragged into the ethical morass by Rain.
