I couldn't agree more.

Ben - Thank you for picking this post up. The circumstances surrounding the death of Steve Cornejo suggest a terrible miscarriage of justice is being allowed to happen in Fairfax County. Incidence like these are always difficult to evaluate based on published reports. In the Cornejo case, however, the civil jury verdict was clearly a SHOUTED MESSAGE to prosecutors and to members of the public to take another look at what happened in Fair Oaks two years ago. The jury's plea should be answered.

Making a decision based upon what happened in a civil case is silly. There are much higher standard of proof in criminal cases. In addition, maaybe the defendant had a poor attorney.
Police, not Horan, always present the evidence to the grand jury(ies). Unless things have changed in the last nine years, the case is called, a cop goes into room with the jury, and only the cop and the jury are present. No commonwealth. No defense attorney. The jury decides if there's a true bill.
A common misconception, to my mind, is that the Commonwealth represents the victim. He doesn't. He represents the community. The victim had his day in court when it was heard in a civil court. The grand jury must not have thought that there was enough evidence to issue a true bill.
