In what seems to be a near daily occurrence, the corrupt Crown Office have yet again refused to review or reverse their decision not to prosecute the Glasgow bin lorry driver Harry Clarke.
However their refusal to review their decision not to prosecute him is for a different reason.
You see, in my experience the Crown office never, ever admit that they are wrong. This is pretty standard behaviour for any corrupt, arrogant, and self-serving type of organisation like the Crown office so, ok, we expect that from them.
But when faced with mounting public criticism (and don't forget, the Crown office work for us), you would normally expect even a corrupt, arrogant, and self-serving organisation to bow to public pressure to act justly and honestly - no matter how much of a climb down and loss of face it would be for them.
That's where the Crown office are different.
Because the Crown Office & Procurator Fiscal Service are absolutely unaccountable to anyone.
Sure, you could argue that the public services ombudsman is supposedly 'above' them. But even an imbecile knows that the SPSO are a toothless bunch of rogues with no power and are in fact run by the Crown office's cronies and connections. So even if the SPSO did have teeth, they would never show them against the Crown office.
And THAT is the real reason the Crown office just keep trotting out the same rebuttals day after day even though we the public are screaming at them for justice to be done. It's because they can.
Meanwhile six people lie dead in the cemetery.
And the Crown office really don't care.
