PBA President opposes separate system of justice for police officers

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“Judges already have a duty and responsibility to review all aspects of grand jury investigations including instructions for deliberations given by prosecutors.  They already have the authority to alter any ruling that they find does not meet the requirements of law making the suggested legislation unnecessary.  The rule of law should apply evenly and fairly to all without exception.  There should not be a separate system of justice for police officers.”
