‘The First Priority is to do Justice’


<p>From Andrew McCarthy, former federal prosecutor, writing over at National Review Online:</p> <p>It is not possible to have the rule of law unless those charged with executing the laws are held accountable when they are derelict. And it is not possible to have accountability when the processes for discovering derelictions do not work.</p> <p>Those processes have to be mended. It is beyond time to reinvigorate the principle that law enforcement’s first priority is to do justice. &#8230; <a href="https://www.policemisconduct.net/the-first-priority-is-to-do-justice/" class="more-link">Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "&#8216;The First Priority is to do Justice&#8217;"</span></a></p> <p><a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.policemisconduct.net/the-first-priority-is-to-do-justice/">&#8216;The First Priority is to do Justice&#8217;</a> is a post from <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.policemisconduct.net">PoliceMisconduct.net</a></p>
