DOJ Attorney: Bush Justice Is A National Disgrace

In a recent Denver Post op-ed, DOJ Attorney John Koppel declares, in no uncertain terms, that he has simply had it with the current administration’s version of justice. The last paragraph is particularly poignant:

I realize that this constitutionally protected statement subjects me to a substantial risk of unlawful reprisal from extremely ruthless people who have repeatedly taken such action in the past. But I am confident that I am speaking on behalf of countless thousands of honorable public servants, at Justice and elsewhere, who take their responsibilities seriously and share these views. And some things must be said, whatever the risk.

Thank you, Mr. Koppel, for taking the risk to stand up and educate people on how justice should not be served.
