I’ve been a big Tom Petty musical fan for many years. He is one of America’s great songwriters, and, sadly, he died last week at the young age of 66. My favorite Petty rendition is his song “I Won’t Back Down.” The song is quite personal to me, because I relate it to my run in with the Justice Department, and the prosecutorial misconduct that has been allowed to fester in the New Orleans U.S. Attorney’s office. I talk about such misconduct in my new column posted this week. And I wrote about similar misconduct, in fact, outright criminal activity by prosecutors, in my book Justice Denied. Take a listen to Petty’s anthem for justice in America.
