the f-ing prosecutor should be hung by his balls maybe from the arch over the highway at plaza olympico or whatever that stop on the metro is. If that bastard knew or was complicit in any way he should be dealt with harshly. I mean what the hell this guy is in the business of locking up other people while he commits the same crimes. The hypocrisy knows no bounds in this country. Prosecutor, huh, just another thug criminal!!!!
