Here is a rarity in Alabama,...going to prison for Perjury http://www.topix.com/city/montgomery-al/2009/09/witness-in-woodward-trial-gets-three-years-for-perjury
Why is it that the law cannot pertain to ALL members of society. Just some. Some can lie under oath, and it gets ignored by our courts. HOWEVER...the ordinary citizen will go to prison for lying under oath. (Perjury). Perjury is a common practice in Alabama, among "some" of the law enforcement officials and judges, as well. I think that the legislative branch should make it MANDATORY that all public officials who lie under oath, should have to answer to the court system. Wouldn't it be more "fair and balanced" to see the public officials held to accountability? I, for one, would like to see that happen. If you know of a story where public officials are getting by with breaking the law...please post on here.
