Why would any mayor resist settling a case of injustice? Don’t forget that the judicial system includes not only the courts but the prosecutors, lawyers and police. If one or more of them obstructed justice from taking place as in this case then settling is the right thing to do. Bloomberg was taking the Scalia point of view of justice. When asked about the reopening of a new trial for a convicted murderer, because new evidence had been uncovered which proved his innocence, Scalia replied, he already received justice and no more needs to be done. That ladies and gentlemen is how corrupt the US “judicial” system has become. If anyone actually gets a fair and unbiased trial, it is in spite of the judicial system, not because of it!
