It’s who you are related to…

On August 31 a young man shot and killed another man in Binghamton. A grand jury handed up an indictment yesterday, 36 days later. On May 4, a man driving an SUV struck another car killing a four-year old girl. He was issued 11 tickets including one for reckless driving. Sheriff-for-Life Harder decided that he should not be charged with vehicular homicide. After a public outcry, DA Cornwell said he would put the case before that grand jury. To date, 156 days later, that has not happened. What is the difference between these cases? In the second one, the driver is the brother-in-law of a Broome County legislator. Where is equal justice under law?
