I had a similar idea about cops who violated suspects' rights. Instead of
letting the suspect go free on a technicality, I propose that we go ahead
and prosecute the suspect in a court of law. Then we also prosecute the cop
for violating the suspects' rights. Two different crimes, and two different
trials. One alleged crime does not influence the judgement of the other.
