There are calls for DOJ to investigate this event. It’s a big scandal.
Here is a snippet about the Orange Co Prosecutor’s trail of bad faith actions in the court system. He just got booted from a terrible mass shooting case. In fact, the entire DAs office is booted by one very upset Superior Court judge.
Superior Court Judge Thomas M. Goethals made an unprecedented, historic move after announcing he’d lost confidence in Orange County homicide and gang prosecutors to obey simple legal rules of conduct. Goethals, a onetime prosecutor and campaign contributor to the DA, recused Rackauckas and his entire staff from People v. Scott Dekraai, the capital case stemming from the 2011 Seal Beach salon massacre.
