PROSECUTE A CASE TO MAKE A POINT

In a March 2 editorial, the Bee endorsed the prosecution of two Elk Grove city council members for violating state law, even though the District Attorney stated that the evidence does not rise to the level that could overcome the "beyond a reasonable doubt" legal standard.

The Bee's editorial stated "The grand jury and Scully could have sent a strong and important message that public misconduct at a certain point won't be tolerated in Sacramento County and will be prosecuted, win or lose, with all the legal tools available."

Prosecute people to make a point. I can't think of a standard more susceptible to political influence.
