Why nothing gets done

Teacher faces discipline

Rocklin Unified School District will discipline but not dismiss a teacher who allegedly roughed up a student.
John Michael Bosco, 47, faces discipline for the incident in which a 16-year-old student at Whitney High School alleged he was shoved backward over his chair and grabbed around the neck, the district said.
Bosco and the student were engaged in good-natured teasing when the boy began asking personal questions about Bosco's daughter, causing the teacher to react, according to police who investigated the June 1 incident.
Superintendent Kevin Brown would not disclose the disciplinary action, saying it was a personnel matter.
"The conclusion of our investigation was that there was a degree of inappropriate conduct, and corrective action with appropriate consequences would be taken," Brown said.
Bosco was placed on a paid administrative leave after the incident. The student was not suspended.

Last week, the Placer County District Attorney's Office announced it was declining to prosecute Bosco because of insufficient evidence

Neither Bosco nor his attorney, Margaret Geddes, returned calls to The Bee.

Gov't to Pay $102M for Mob Convictions

BOSTON -- In a stinging rebuke of the FBI, a federal judge on Thursday ordered the government to pay a record judgment of nearly $102 million because agents withheld evidence that would have kept four men from spending decades in prison for a mob murder they did not commit.
Judge Nancy Gertner told a packed courtroom that agents were trying to protect informants when they encouraged a witness to lie, then withheld evidence they knew could prove the four men were not involved in the 1965 murder of Edward "Teddy" Deegan, a small-time thug shot in an alley.
Gertner said Boston FBI agents knew mob hitman Joseph "The Animal" Barboza lied when he named Joseph Salvati, Peter Limone, Henry Tameleo and Louis Greco as Deegan's killers. She said the FBI considered the four "collateral damage" in its war against the Mafia, the bureau's top priority in the 1960s.
Tameleo and Greco died behind bars, and Salvati and Limone spent three decades in prison before they were exonerated in 2001. Salvati, Limone and the families of the other men sued the federal government for malicious prosecution.

On one hand, in my opinion, the teacher in the first case was justified. So, little miscreants go about their crime and destruction, and no one dares to criticize or discipline.

In the second case, since Agents didn't have " The Goods", they "made up stuff".
And someone--somewhere--knew it was a bulls**t lie.

Now, since the Agents did that, their entire organization issuspect, with the entire non-enforcement population wondering " What else did they " Make Up"?
