The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“The prosecutors have all the power. Not even the judge has discretion, because lawmakers have mostly taken that liberality away in the name of cracking down on crime. This happened all through the 1980s and 1990s, and the prosecutorial dictatorship has entrenched itself to become the norm since 2001. For the last ten years, the police state has had free rein.” – Lew Rockwell, as quoted in “The Police State Abolishes the Trial”, (30 September 2011), by L.H. Rockwell, Mises Daily
