“This is exactly why we need to fire many of our nation’s federal prosecutors and start all over again,” opines federal criminal defense lawyer John Castellano. “All 93 US Attorneys across the nation — the entire Justice Department, should institute a new policy of hiring ONLY former criminal defense lawyers as new federal prosecutors. The reason is simple: Once those former criminal defense lawyers become federal prosecutors, they won’t have to grow a conscience, and common sense says they’ll have a broader perspective and sense of fundamental fairness, with some modicum of compassion — enough to never allow for these nightmarish results that flow from this sort of unconscionable prosecution mentality.” See:    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/06/us/federal-prosecutors-assailed-in-outcry-over-sentencing.html?hpw&rref=us&_r=0
