PERFECT JUSTICE:

Mixed day in court for Pinochet (BBC, 6/08/05)

Augusto Pinochet may be charged with tax evasion but not over human rights abuses committed when he was Chile's military ruler, a court has ruled.

It's an ideal decision because he deserves to be punished if he stole, but not for using force to save the country.

Didn't that strategy work against Al Capone, or one of the Chicago Hoods?
