    Once again the low hanging fruit is prosecuted while the real crimes committed by the really corrupt higher ups runs rampant. As a good friend of mine who once sat on the JCB (then the JIRB) says: "And the band plays on". God bless you Attorney Robert Surrick. Enjoy your twilight years in Costa Rica and stay as far away from this cesspool as you can. When you get a chance please go to Youtube and watch: Worse than Rodney King. Unrelated to this article but it will give you an idea of the scope of corruption in Penna.
