Cohen: Government Intimidation Violating Individual Rights

Alexander Cohen of the Atlas Society and its Business Rights Center has written a most excellent article on the violation of our individual rights caused by government prosecutors piling on sentencing penalties to keep us from standing upon our rights.  They intimidate people into plea bargain agreements when they are innocent or when they may be innocent.  These citizens are deprived of their day in court, to which they are entitled.  As Cohen says, our rights mean little if were are too afraid to assert them.
