mjbok: jayphat: Why the fark is a "Department of Revenue" attorney testifying for a god damn criminal action punishment? Shouldn't someone from the Department of Motor Vehicles be there instead? No, cause it's NEVER about punishment, just revenue income.

The fact that a Dept. of Revenue is involved in this shows what a big portion of the problem is.


You think that's bad, the Public Defender's office here in New Mexico was, up until a constitutional amendment passed during the 2012 election to change the law, a division of the Department of Corrections.

I've lived in both states, and both are crooked as hell.
