Don’t lose sight of covert terror
Covert terror is when the judge simply takes the police at their word when the defendant brings a conflict account. Covert terror is when the prosecutor wilfully inflates the charge brought against the defendant, only so they have the leverage necessary to force a plea bargain. Covert terror is when the police embellish a fact in court. Covert terror is the police’s use of “I don’t recall” when presented with a question whose response would look unfavorably. Covert terror is an unattainable cash bond. Cover terror is civil asset forfeiture.
