If Gascon accepts responsibility for this miscarriage of justice, he should resign!

'The responsibility is mine'

No kidding...

Gascon is a disgrace. This was an open and shut case and he blew it.

There are no consequences for a jerk like this guy. He accepts responsibility. He doesn't know the meaning of the word. Unqualified, no ethics, no morals, a political hack who cares more about votes, political correctness, liberal policies and staying on leftists good side than he does about justice. If he was a Republican and Kate Stinely was a non-white, people would be screaming into any microphone or tv camera that presented itself for him to resign. He assigns the cases. Couldn't he find a non-moron to assign it to? Can he look the Stinely family in the eyes and tell them he shouldn't resign?
