In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: the police, who investigate crime; and the district attorneys, who prosecute the offenders. Except in Venezuela where I think it works differently.
Ugueth Urbina was sentenced to 14 years in jail today by a judge in Caracas for the attempted murder of five people on his family's ranch. The Venezuelan Attorney General's office said that Urbina was also guilty of "illegal deprivation of liberty and violating a prohibition against taking justice into his own hands during a dispute over a gun."
The linked article notes, with no hint of irony, that Urbina is a "free agent."
