Brian James I am otherwise wholly opposed to the death penalty, but a case like this, where the owners and operators risked and lost over 1000 lives simply because they wanted to increase their bottom line, they are callous and despicable actors who deserve the most extreme consequences imaginable

Rita Zobayan It'd be a lot more productive if the U.S. prosecuted big finance for theft and corruption, big pharma for price gouging, and lobbyists for bribery. But politicians won't bite the hands that feed them.
Jeff Vanderwerf I think it's funny, though predictable and telling, that so many here are bad-mouthing the USA for *finally* taking FIFA to task. FIFA, an organization that everyone complains about and knows is horribly corrupt, is now a sympathetic figure because of their accusers. Hilarious.
Josh Bullitt Are they prosecuting for laws broken in the US? If not then this leaves a lot of Americans open to prosecution by European or Asian law enforcement agencies.
Юра Юрий How about lobbysts bribing "legaly" congressmen??? Oh right.....its not corruption when the US does it...
Michael Magri Next up....Wall Street crooks?
Matt Blean Too bad they don't know how to prosecute Wall Street
Noel O Connor Also the big companies need to be investigated, those who paid billions to fifa for advertising and image rights....
Salatiel Hamatwi American want to take control of FIFA that's why? The is a lot of money to be made and it's not in the hands of the Americans. It's the only international organizations that's is not under the american thumb.
Nadira Mulchan FIFA can't do all this racketeering without involving one of the world's biggest racketeer. Give them their cut Blatter!

Kenutocr Ac I am costarican and love soccer and it is embarrassing realizing that an soccer official of my country is involved in this historical corruption case ....taking something supposed to be a clean activity as sport for personal dirty profit is disgusting
Gracie Gomez They were paid by the very countries that were chosen for future World Cups, but those countries will still host these events? - how is that possible? Those countries are just as corrupt as these bozos - take the World Cups away from them!
Linda Moehlman Daub Ugly and old
Ray Jobborn When is the 'Justice" Department going to gaze upon the conduct of the banks....?
True Poizon Hmm. So 9 FIFA executives and 5 corporate executives were indicted and charged with racketeering and corruption. Yet, the executives of the 5 major banks who manipulated the markets were simply given a fine. -----Soccer more important than people and markets? Makes sense....I guess. Not.

Eness Fellenz The Cop In Cleveland Should Easily Have Been Found Guilty on Accomplice Liability Law Principles ...... A natural first feeling upon reviewing the facts of this matter is to categorize Michael Brelo by his brutal act as a low-life, degenerate devian Read more ... t deserving of suffering a similar eye for an eye end as his victims. How else to verbalize outrage over something so repugnant and unforgivable? Imagine how reprehensible and sick one has to be to stand on the hood of a car and fire 49 bullets into a car at a seated man and woman, entirely unarmed at that? The bodies must have convulsed each time a bullet struck. How terribly contemptible one must be to just brazenly pump bullets at and into human beings who weren't shooting back, nor could have been perceive to be shooting back. Just like Michael Slager shot Walter Scott in the back in SC on April 4, this officer did one as bad in killing those two poor souls whose only crimes were speeding away from a throng of angry guys in blue. There is no excuse. The judge that found one is himself totally degenerate in bringing about an outcome that can be said to constitute nothing less than reprobate. The same abject revulsion applicable to Brelo has to be naturally felt in looking at what the judge did. He's somewhat what the law calls an ACCOMPLICE AFTER THE FACT. He mirrors the kind of despicable judge that was portrayed in the movie "Mississippi Burning" who set the guilty defendants free, and worsened that act by giving approval to their actions in brutally murdering three civil rights workers. And it is important to justice that the same disgust for the judge’s actions be expressed by citizens as for any terrible deed that subverts justice as happened for those two murdered souls. There is no excuse for what he did in finding Brelo not guilty. It was gross injustice, a perversion of truth and the law. It was certainly nothing less than unmitigated guff in basing his claim that he couldn't find that slug in blue guilty upon a false principle of criminal non-liability related to being unable to determine if one of Brelo's bullets actually killed either victim. And what's most disturbing is that he didn't have to find that Brelo's bullets did the actual killing. Under ACCOMPLICE LIABILITY, all the judge needed to do was to determine that Brelo acted in concert with one or more individuals in perpetrating the crimes that killed those two unfortunate people. Certainly that is what happened ... at minimum he acted as an accomplice with those other cops who each contributed to the deaths of the victims. They acted together to shoot up that vehicle having not a single weapon inside of it, and to viciously murder that couple. There is no excuse. Not a single shot could ever have been reasonably believed to have been fired from the vehicle while being pursued by 62 police cars simply because there wasn't a gun ever discharged from the vehicle. No gun or other weapon could ever have been seen or claimed to have been seen by the 87 cops who gave pursuit to two unarmed, mentally ill people, because there was simply no gun ever in the car. Those obviously bad guys in blue acted together to deprive two human beings of their lives and civil liberties. There was no reason to give chase, there was no crime committed that would give cause for arrest, and nonetheless, certainly there was no basis to take their lives. ACCOMPLICE LIABILITY allows the court to find a person criminally liable for acts committed by a different person. If a person aids, assists, or encourages another in the commission of a crime, they are said to be an “accomplice” to the crime. The person who actually commits the act is called the “principal.” Complicity in such a context is THE ACT OF HELPING OR ENCOURAGING ANOTHER INDIVIDUAL TO COMMIT A CRIME. It is also commonly referred to as AIDING AND ABETTING. One who is complicit is said to be an accomplice. But, even though an accomplice does not actually commit the crime, his or her actions helped someone in the commission of the crime. The concept of ACCOMPLICE LIABILITY means an accomplice faces the same degree of guilt and punishment as the individual who committed the crime. Indeed, accomplices can face the same penalties, including prison time. The key consideration is whether the individual intentionally and voluntarily encouraged or assisted in the commission of the crime, or (in some cases) failed to prevent it. Essentially, there is BUT ONE DEFENSE to accomplice liability in a criminal law context, and that defense is what's CALLED WITHDRAWAL. In a situation where someone has encouraged or assisted in the commission of a crime, he may be able to avoid a conviction by making an effective and timely withdrawal of his help or encouragement. In order for the withdrawal to be TIMELY, generally, it must occur before the chain of events leading up to the crime has progressed to the point where it is impossible to stop the commission of the crime. Aside from being timely, the withdrawal must also be EFFECTIVE. What that means will depend on what the accomplice did to aid the commission of the crime. If the accomplice only incited or encouraged the commission of the crime, he must communicate a renunciation of the crime to the perpetrator in order for his withdrawal to be considered effective. Obviously, that is not at all what Brelo did. He never withdrew from participation or acted to effectively terminate the criminal acts that lead to the death of his two victims. He in fact acted in concert with the other bad cops to the end of ensuring that their misdeeds were completed. He was therefore at minimum an accomplice to the murder of those two unfortunate people. As such, he should have been found as much responsible and legally liable for their deaths as whoever the principals actually are. He should have been found guilty of crimes and held to pay a price for the unlawful and totally inexplicable taking of life. Such a conclusion is plainly evident from the facts of this case, and should have been as easy a slam dunk for this opprobrious judge as Lebron regularly does on his best days on the court. Simply an easy and just end to have reached. That the judge there would disgracefully not find liability and guilt, but instead find a poorly crafted, disingenuous way out speaks to the immorality of his finding and constitutes a crime on his part irrespective of whether it is found in Ohio's criminal code.
