    • The fact that you can be wrongly accused just because they want someone to take the blame for the crime is just sad

    • The prosecutor, when faced with the video evidence given by Larry David, still didn’t admit she was wrong even when proof was put in front of her fat fucking face. At some point prosecutors should be put in jail if they purposely ignore evidence that contradicts their case.
