I'm a big fan of understanding motivations. Prosecutors try to go hard on people so that they "look tough".

Think about how disgusting it is to build your career on how many wins you have and fuck the collateral damage (pardon my French) which in this case was Aaron.

Until prosecutors are not motivated to act this way, we will continue to see excessive behavior from them.
