A judge slaps down the lunatic left wing prosecutor who indicted VP Dick Cheney and Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. This moron used his last few days in office to indict the VP and AG for prisoner abuse. The judge told him to knock it off. It is a shame when the people in charge of our legal system use it to make political statements. Actions like these destroy peoples faith and trust in the system.
Indictments against Cheney, Gonzales dismissed

RAYMONDVILLE, Texas – A judge dismissed indictments against Vice President Dick Cheney and former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on Monday and told the southern Texas prosecutor who brought the case to exercise caution as his term in office ends.
Willacy County District Attorney Juan Angel Guerra had accused Cheney and the other defendants of responsibility for prisoner abuse. The judge's order ended two weeks of sometimes-bizarre court proceedings.
Guerra is leaving office at the end of the month after soundly losing in his March primary election.
"I suggest on behalf of the law that you not present any cases to the grand jury involving these defendants," Administrative Judge Manuel Banales said in court while ruling that eight indictments against Cheney, Gonzales and others were invalid.
He also set a Dec. 10 hearing on whether to disqualify Guerra from those cases. Read more here.
