Barry Sheck (sp? Shreck? He is a lawyer after all, so ogre is not irrelevant) runs something called the Innocence Project. I believe he was one of OJ Simpson's Dream Team (no, not the 1973 Buffalo Bills Offensive Line, the 1995 Simpson-Goldman Slayings Really Offensive Line - for you WP admins who weren't born yet during the Summer of the White Bronco).
This Innocence Project basically gets Prison Lifers out of jail by exposing fraudulent Prosecutors, faulty evidence, railroading, etc, with hard science like DNA evidence proving other did the crime among other things.
Well, as we have seen this month, Durova has banned more than just "!!" on faulty evidence, there's been a slew of very perplexed former WP editors thanks to Durova on WP Death Row.
Durova is just one in a long line (many of whom are her WP friends) of admins who have had their way exercising WikiJimCrow Justice, Kangaroo Courting, and One Man Bans On the Down-Low.
Perhaps its time to give some banned WP'ians their day in court.
Whether it makes "trusted admins" look bad should not be a factor. Essjay, SlimVirgin, Jayjg, and Durova were once "trusted admins" and checkusers in some cases. But then I'm an idealist and not Jimbo Wales.
