    The real travesty is that he remained convicted for violating a law that was ruled unconstitutional. The comments in the Washington Times is amusing...not a mention of cops lying while doing their job. Unfortunate indeed.

    Even more...the legislature passed such a law. In my state I got the state senate to admit that they do not care about constitutionality of bills and laws.

    Likely the same in this poor guy's state.
