Unregulated Jailhouse Informant Testimony

Unregulated Jailhouse Informant Testimony

In 2011, Paul Wilson’s wife Christy was among eight people killed in Orange County, California.

[ Reviewed Unto Righteousness Below ]

It is called a scoundrel when the Prosecution extorts accusations, confessions and tortured convictions out of others.

No wonder God will suddenly judge without any chance of parole.

What fools United States Prosecutors are ~ they falsley believe that because judges let them get by with being scoundrels that God, the Judge of judges, will do that same.

Understand and be afraid for God will judge both judge and prosecutor.

A scoundrel and a villain goes around with crooked speech,  winking the eyes, shuffling the feet, pointing the fingers,  with perverted mind devising evil, continually sowing discord;  on such a one calamity will descend suddenly; in a moment, damage beyond repair. (Proverbs 6:12-15)
