Win at all Costs, Government Misconduct in the Name of Expedient Justice
A Ten Part Series Written by Investigative Reporter Bill Moushey

This series of stories examining federal law enforcement officials´┐Ż misconduct
grew from another investigative series that Post-Gazette reporter Bill Moushey
completed in 1996.


"Hundreds of times during the past 10 years, federal agents and prosecutors
have pursued justice by breaking the law.

They lied, hid evidence, distorted facts, engaged in cover-ups, paid for
perjury and set up innocent people in a relentless effort to win indictments,
guilty pleas and convictions, a two-year Post-Gazette investigation found.

Rarely were these federal officials punished for their misconduct. Rarely did they
admit their conduct was wrong.

New laws and court rulings that encourage federal law enforcement officers
to press the boundaries of their power while providing few safeguards against
abuse fueled their actions."

Victims of this misconduct sometimes lost their jobs, assets and even families.
Some remain in prison because prosecutors withheld favorable evidence or allowed
fabricated testimony. Some criminals walk free as a reward for conspiring with the
government in its effort to deny others their rights."
