Dismissing Strauss-Kahn Case Grave Injustice
..your office can easily get away with dismissing the above-captioned indictment, without any adverse political consequences, if there is a gap between moral law and public law.

Re: People v. Dominique Strauss-Khan
Dear Mr. Vance:
I am submitting signatures on petitions from persons who are concerned about the fate of the above-captioned criminal prosecution. You should also expect to receive online petitions. I am not an elected official nor am I a leader of any organization whose membership seeks self-determination.
This case is scheduled to appear on the court calendar of the Manhattan Supreme Court on August 23. Your office has publicly threatened to dismiss a well-founded indictment. In honesty, Blacks in New York City, including Black lawyers and Black lawmakers, are unaware of the grand jury process or the powers of a district attorney. There is also no understanding of the relationship between criminal law and tort law.
That being the case, your office can easily get away with dismissing the above-captioned indictment, without any adverse political consequences, if there is a gap between moral law and public law. I hope, however, that the words of Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. will play a major role in your decision. "An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere".
Very truly yours,
