Commission To Investigate Prosecutorial
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, signed into law on Thursday legislation that establishes a first-in-the-nation commission to investigate prosecutorial misconduct. The state hopes others in the nation will follow suit and create their own commissions.
Prosecutors have the power to bring charges against someone, but must also provide a fair, ethical trial and are obligated to turn over evidence to the defense. Failure to do so is considered misconduct, as it can result in an innocent person going to jail.
The Innocence Project (IP), an organization dedicated to overturning the convictions of the wrongly punished, praised the new commission, calling it “groundbreaking.”

Long, l-o-n-g overdue.
And I saw something else under the sun: In the place of judgment—wickedness was there, in the place of justice—wickedness was there.
I said to myself, “God will bring into judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time to judge every deed.” Ecclesiastes 3:16-17
While the commission could be a step forward for tackling this problem, we should withhold judgment until we see some results. – Dailywire
