In a stunning if alas unsurprising indictment of American "justice" - one suggested alternate headline: "Water Is Wet" - a new leaked report has found that racist cops in Dothan, Ala. and a complicit D.A. have been planting drugs and guns for years on black suspects, hundreds of whom remain jailed on false charges.
