One of my favorites from the closer look section:
* U.S. v. Sipe: Border Patrol agent David Sipe was charged in 2000 with using excessive force as he attempted to detain an undocumented immigrant crossing into Texas from Mexico. Three immigrants had ignored orders to stop and had fled into a field of tall reeds. Sipe used his flashlight to subdue one who was resisting arrest; the immigrant suffered a head wound that required five stitches. After Sipe was convicted in 2001, his defense attorney, Jack Wolfe, discovered that prosecutors failed to tell the court that the immigrants had been granted Social Security cards, border-crossing passes and money in exchange for their testimony.
* Outcome: The trial judge ordered a new trial, a ruling upheld in 2004 by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit. At Sipe's 2007 retrial, the evidence that the government had extended privileges to the victim was introduced. A jury acquitted Sipe after two hours of deliberation. He eventually won back pay from the Border Patrol, on condition that he never work again for Homeland Security. Sipe has taught martial arts classes and is seeking a job in law enforcement. "When I went into public service, I expected honorable behavior would be the norm," Sipe said. "I wasn't expecting an unfair investigation, an unfair trial."
Strange how these prosecutors work for the Department of Justice, and yet "justice" is secondary at best to "convictions".
