    It doesn’t matter if “justice will prevail in a higher court” that’s not the point of the process. This guy has to run the subset of legal hurdles to defend himself. That long complicated process, or harassment if you will, in itself is the deterrent and the purpose.

    Yes every person breaks three laws a day, it is the selective enforcement of overbearing laws against citizens which allows the courts to be trainers. Day in and day out training the populace not to step out of line, because even if you haven’t done anything “wrong”, you’ve still done something that people with money don’t like and they can do what they like to you by having some anachronistic bureaucratic law pressed to their advantage.

    In a sense the wide publication of such situations is desirable by the powers that be because this sends the message to the populace “Don’t get out of line and cross us because we’ll fuck your shit up”.
