Krieghund: She might not deserve to have a fair trial, but we won't know that until we give her a fair trial.
Ironic, huh?


It's a classic Catch-22, where the best solution is to simply give everyone accused of a crime a fair trial; no matter how guilty we think they are. If we want to consider ourselves civilized it's the only solution.
 
2012-12-20 10:06:51 PM  
I don't see what the big deal is. She hasn't been tried yet.

Ed Finnerty: If this was a fair world, she would have been sentenced to complete all the sentences her results caused. Please excuse the sentence structure of the previous sentence.

BizarreMan: Oh the poor thing. A 6pm curfew is impacting her social life. How does that compare to the social life of the people incarcerated due to her fraudulent testing methods?


I rarely do this. But...THIS.

Somaticasual: If she legitimately did that of her own free will and circumstances, then an example needs to be set and justice needs to be damn harsh. however, if she was basically ordered to do that surreptitiously to support that travesty known as "for-profit" prisons, then every single person up that chain of command needs to be shackled and subjected to the same kangaroo trials they dole out to non-violent drug offenders daily.


No need to start getting paranoid. Anyone who needs her curfew extended because it's "impacting her social life," is obviously more than capable of faking lab tests so she could clock out promptly at 5 p.m. so as to get started on that same social life.

A fact which I would be sure to examine, were I either the prosecutor in this case or the attorney of one of the many civil cases sure to follow her conviction.

The GA state crime lab got caught rigging breathalyzer machines in the State's favor. No convictions, but a lot of crickets.

Says she was considered the most productive employee, not sure if that's valuable in a government job.

Have any of you stopped to think how all this could have happened to her?
It was most likely a very demanding job. The pressure from prosecuters demanding results to forward their cases. An ever increasing work load under department budget cuts. Most munis don't keep up with new technologies that the evidence required. Not to mention that she appears to be of Indian or Pakistanie decent. Do you even know the mind farking presure those societies put on their women to be not only subservient but to also suceed in their professional careers?
All of this must have been overwhelmingly stressful for her.
Do not judge until you have walked a mile.

tlchwi02: 

the gov. he's claiming the state budget can't handle the costs of doing the legwork on this

Seems like there could be an easy solution:  Immediately vacate the convictions of and release anyone who is in prison whose case involved a test she ran or her testimony.


As for her, if convicted, her sentence should be at a minimum at least one day for every day anyone spent in jail/prison because of any test she falsified.  If that means she's on the hook for a couple hundred people that spent a few months to a year each in prison, well, bye.

If your actions at work routinely result in life-altering consequences for others you have to be held to a higher standard.  Doctors, nurses, law enforcement officers, officers of the court, forensics analysts, social workers, etc, basically anyone whose job duties effect the lives, livelihoods, or freedoms of others in a major way, don't get to play the 'I was under a lot of pressure' card.

If you want a license to cut corners when things get tough get a job at Wal-Mart or McDonalds.

Although, if anyone above her was aware of and/or encouraging what she was doing to make quotas, they should be prosecuted as well.

Ah yes. Stress perfectly justifies putting innocent people in prison by falsifying reports.

In a public sector career, relationships are everything, because every promotion or transfer is intensely political. The relationships that concerned her were probably (via her boss) the DA and his prosecutors. And we all know exactly which outcome the DA is wants from a forensics test

She might also be one of those naive people who believe in helping a LEO who is "sure the guy did it, I just can't prove it!"

Fark this woman. She should be in prison while awaiting trial, not out free with a "curfew." The thing that pisses me off most about this case is that they seem to be using her as a scapegoat. No farking way she acted alone. Sure, get her in prison, but they need to find out who let this shiat happen and also let them hang. She is scum, but there is very obviously more to this story.

The Boston Globe goes into more detail: http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/2012/12/20/indicted-dr u g-analyst-annie-dookhan-mails-reveal-her-close-personal-ties-prosecuto rs/A37GaatHLKfW1kphDjxLXJ/story.html.

She hated drug dealers. She had a crush on a prosecutor. When he told her he needed a bundle of weed to weigh 50 pounds, she gave him 80.  He denies having an affair with her. He resigned anyway.
